Would you like some fries with that snot?

I don't know whether or not this is a new or old article, but i have heard this over the years. Digesting your own snot may be beneficial to your immune system.

In the wise words of Family Guy - What good is mining nose gold if I can't share it with the townspeople?

Well... you get plenty of snot from your sinuses draining down the back of your throat, so that doesn't even seem like it could be true. What could be in your nostril that isn't half and inch further up an open cavity?

And, besides, GROSS! Gives a new meaning to quackery.

Apparently it's the dry remains, which your fingers can reach, but tissues cannot. The notion is that dried germ corpses can help strengthen the immune system.

Good Lord! This thread is WRONG!

But reminds me of a joke that was a favourite as a child:

What do you find up a clean nose?

Fingerprints!!

Max and I were discussing boogers in the car today. He was saying there's a lady he works with that always has one - every time he sees her. He was like `doesn't her husband ever say anything??'.

I must admit I like to have a tidy nose area.

I remember we were in the car one day and there was this professional looking woman stopped at lights with her finger up her nose having a dig. My dad wagged his finger at her laughing; I've never seen anyone so mortified in my life!!

EWWWWWWW, how horrifying. If you wanna get the crusties out do what my husband does. Take a piece of tissue and twist the end and stick it in your nose. Then twist it around in there and walla, no more nose crusties.

I'm a closet nose picker but never a booger eater!
I work in a dirty environment where I have to mine for rocks on a regular basis & actually I think some of my sinus infections have been a result of that, when I haven't been good about washing my hands that day & "pick" up someone else's nasty cold. So keep your hands clean this flu season my fellow pickers!

Your snot contains streptococcus, a lovely bacteria which can cause lovely infections. But I DID ask about this in my microbiology class last year - if one eats their own snot, it will not have any effect on them.

Did you ever hear of index relativity? Everyone's index finger is relative to the size of their nostril.
