No, but it will surely make people think strangely of you.


Yes and no. However, I do it myself. If you do it, you could get addicted. It can cause nose bleeds and lead to being secretive. It may not be bad because if you eat your snot, it will go to your stomach and join the rest of the mucous on your stomach wall. Nose picking addictions are fairly common in toddlers, but if you get older, you're making a spectacle of yourself.

Very probably ! Apart from being a disgusting habit - the nostrils are essentially a 'trap' to stop dust, pollen etc getting into the lungs. If you eat what's accumulated up there - you're transferring possibly harmful bacteria and other matter directly into your body !
