I have a serious question.
Do you know which ingridients are in a booger?
Its very tasty, for me it tastes mild sweet(starchy texture), fatty and salty.
I guess it is a calorie source from tasting it.
Many people eat their boogies and have no clue whats in the boogies that makes the boogies so delicious. I searched the internet, found nothing, f.e. wikipedia can give no real detail information.
Why is it so hard to find an answer to this simple question, i have a strange feeling about this.
Is there somebody hiding information like this^^
Millions of people eat them, love the taste but virtually nobody knows why they taste so good and what they re made out of. And virtually nobody wants to know whats in there that makes boogie so delicious. Insane!
Strange world we live in^^
Check out wikipedia
...a very interesting thing not many years ago, of a German Scientist who was shunned by the scientific community for proposing that eating your boogers is, infact, very healthy.
Our noses have cavities with hair covering them, filtering the air we breath of any dust and bacteria. The bacteria are then mixed around with a sticky solvent called mucus. When the mixture is complete, we get boogers. The mucus traps the bacteria and neutralizes it until we blow, or pick the boogies out. The German scientist contended that by consuming the boogies we create a confrontation of our immune systems with the bacteria our shnozes capture. This in turn allows our immune system to become familiar with the type of bacteria, defeat it, and ultimately become immune to the effects of that bacteria in the future. Yes, this sounds much like the flu shot that we must get every year to immunizes ourselves from the ever changing flu virus. The only con of eating the boogies is that if we ingest a bacteria that our immune system isn't capable of dealing with, we inherently make ourselves very sick.
So the rule of thumb is, eat your boogers, but eat them in moderation! and don't let people see you, this German scientist was shunned because he pertained to something socially unacceptable.
This makes so much sense to me! I'm so using this if anyone catches me picking my nose :P
I wouldn't eat mine. They are sometimes black from city pollution and especially from using underground trains.
Me too. :(
Has anyone ever tried to register boogers on cronometer? Migt have to watchout, if you eat enough they could throw your macronutrient ratio out of whack
i love eating them - i especially like the dry and googey ones in the same booger but the green ones are a little too favor intense for me so i ussally flick them.
booger content is 95 % water and 5 % salt, trace quantities of carbohydrates, proteins & fats
first drive through mc booger take away - as you can see its currently closed due to overwhelming public response.
I never thought I'd live the see the day where I'd link to this thread, but life is full of surprises...
dude i think you just discovered the next big superfood
