See this video about the “World’s Biggest Booger Removed!” I challenge everyone especially for those people who have the guts to watch it, go! But what is this booger and how it could affect our health? (Especially this big?)
To understand what boogers are, you need to know about mucus (say: MYOO-kus). Mucus is the sticky, slimy stuff that's made inside your nose. If you're like lot of kids, you have another name for nose mucus: snot. Your nose and sinuses make about a quart (about 1 liter) of snot every day.
Mucus has a pretty important job — it protects the lungs. When you breathe in air through your nose, it contains lots of tiny things, like dust, dirt, germs, and pollen. If these made it all the way to the lungs, the lungs could get irritated or infected, making it tough to breathe. Luckily, snot helps trap this stuff, keeping it in the nose and out of the lungs.
We must understand that a booger is doing a pretty good job of protecting the lungs but one in the video is kind of alarming, that’s why it is removed by a specialist.
