One thing that never ceases to amaze me, is the number of screwballs commenting on health. All over the world, Universities and research outfits, are employing countless people, to output a tidal wave of useless information. Take this example from the Telegraph here.
"Scientists at a number of universities including Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) say parents should not discourage their children from picking their noses because they contain 'a rich reservoir of good bacteria.'
Eating snot can also prevent bacteria from sticking to teeth, according to the article published in the journal of the American Society for Microbiology.
The findings even suggest snot could defend against respiratory infections, stomach ulcers and even HIV.
The researchers are even working on a synthetic mucus toothpaste and chewing gum to harness the dental benefits of bogies"
