    I aggressively pick my nose over a dozen times a day. Been doing since I was a child and never once have encountered any of these "common issues". Go do a study thats actually helpful.

    Everyone who does pick your nose, don't. It is very disgusting and your hands will be full of germs. Just use a tissue.

    You know what else I forgot to mention? Picking your nose is MUCH healthier than smoking or overeating. If you are going to engage in bad habits, please consider picking your nose.

    it's not a big deal to get a nosebleed, and you probably shouldn't pick your nose in a hospital or someplace dirty. otherwise, it's wonderful.
