According to a recent story out of the University of Saskatchewan, picking your nose and eating the findings, may have various immunological health benifits. Dr. Scott Nappper, associate professor of biochemistry at the University of Saskatchewan, is interested in conducting a one-of-a-kind study, (imagine trying to write a grant on the topic of nose picking!), to evaluate whether or not bacteria trapped in snot can actually stimulate the immune system if orally consumed by its harvester. While Dr. Napper has already gone public with his desire to research this topic, his biggest challenge will likely be in recruiting volunteers for his study.

Read the story on the University of Saskatchewan website.
