Why do some people pick their nose and eat it?

What is it about nasal mucus that makes certain individuals want to dig it out and consume it like a piece of bubblegum? 34 mths ago - -14 min left to answer.

I know, it's disgusting to say the least. And why do some parents not wipe their toddlers noses when those thick ugly mucous is running straight to their mouths....maybe they are raised that way. Grew up with the taste of "snot"!

Gee Whizz! Now this is something that really irks me......it has become a daily thing I see in the traffic. Some people seem to think that they cannot be seen at all while in their cars in traffic. Sometimes they even stare at the thing on the end of their finger as if almost admiring it before they chow down.......GROSS!

Picking one's nose to get the crap out of it is understandable but then eating it absurd. There can be no reason whatsoever to eat snot!! How disgusting.

Do you know the difference between picking your nose and picking your friends ... you can't eat your friends ..

I have seen it done by waiters in Restaurants, yes more than one. Also ear scratching and eating that, and of course the dirty hair! This is my most Pet Hate...all of this. I wrote a letter to the Newspaper because I was nauseous for a week. Poor culture, poor upbringing, no upbringing, they have lost something, they have lost it, they do not know better and this is sad. No one has the guts to tell them to stop doing it or they will be fired. But at the end of the day, it is disgusting, absolutely disgusting. I had grown ups working for me who reverted to this..I offfered them a sandwich. Did not help. They do not work here any more.

It is the most basic human activity that nobody needs to teach a child to do. The upper lip is even designed to direct the mucous to the mouth. It has been said that snot acts like an anti bacterial immunisation and promotes good health to the iimune system. Kids who 'snot snack' are usually less prone to colds and viruses. ............On the other hand...it is free and you don't need to ask for it, or waste it. I have always told children it is ok to snot snak if they do it in private.....otherwise everyone else is secretly jealous of their bogeys.!! Waste not ..want not !! Nature did not design Kleenex before designing snot.
