Germaphobes, cringe with us in unison: a doctor in Colorado suggests that in order to boost your immune system, you should pick your nose….AND EAT IT! 

Dr Meg Lemon, from Denver, Colorado, is also advising people to “eat their food after it’s been dropped on the floor, and promotes the idea that we shouldn’t be so afraid of germs”, reports the Daily Mail.

Her advice is pretty gross, but her intentions are good. She says that we need to build ourselves up and strengthen our immune systems instead of creating such sterile environments in our homes with antiseptics and anti-bacterials.
