  • sensitive question!

    Ok....so little kids always pick their noses instinctively and then .......eat it!!! and then we (the adults) try to stop them. CW?

    So the question is... did Grok pick his nose....and eat it?

    Apparently, it's good for kids to do that - and I think that would probably extend to adults. Immune system and all that.

        Let's not start romanticizing the idiocy of children too, we put up with enough of the 'grokmanticism' as it is.

        Kids will also put things up their noses, eat pre-mixed kool-aid mixes straight, refuse veggies, try to not fall asleep, throw a WWIII-level tantrum for being denied a Blow Pop, lick a frozen metal pipe, etc.

          ...but its not just children.....I've witnessed adults do it too......most often when gently distracted (eg; while driving and waiting for traffic lights to change) and not thinking about what they are doing.......so is it ' childhood idiocy' or is it an primitive program? It might not be romantic but it just might be autoinnoculation?

            Ha ha, hillarious! Yes, children are not always some sort of beacon of health, but other times are very instinctively in tune with their bodies.

            I read something about eating each others snot (in primate communities) being good for immunity and gut health? Booger sharing anyone?!?! Anyone? lmao!!!

              Yes, I put a popcorn kernel up my nose once. I don't know what happened to it.

              BUT, an Austrian lung specialist, Dr. Friedrich Bischinger says it's good for the immune system.

                Aah, yes, clearly we have come upon some innate human wisdom. Eating body secretions. Reminds me of jocks in the back of the bus. Who knew that juvenile offensive line was so advanced?!

                  This is a brilliant way for PB to become known to the world. Booger eaters unite!
                  If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

                      Haha, so true. I have two toddlers and am in the midst of child craziness right now. Even for smart kids they do pretty dumb things quite often, all kids do. Now, it MAY be good for the immune system to pick your nose and eat it, who knows?. Babies will put anything and everything in their mouths and this continues into toddlerhood somewhat. It is proven that this helps build the immune system and babies should not be discouraged from mouthing anything.
                      So, do I let my kids pick their nose and eat it? no, I think that's disgusting. If anyone thinks it's okay atleast encourage your kids to do it in private. It's not something anyone needs to see. And, no I don't think Grok would have picked his nose because they didn't have nailclippers back then and I would think scratchy nails+ dirty hands would cause infections! Ouch.

                        I think this habit extends back to pre-Grok days and stems from the most animalistic parts of our nature. I don't think it has much to do with being remarkably in tune with your body.

                          and that presumably is why now we also have to teach children (and adults) not to instinctively bite their nails............?

                            I don't think people instinctively bite their nails. I don't, my husband doesn't and my kids don't. My mom did as a nervous habit and from watching my mom my siblings have developed the habit but it's learned, not instinct. I'm pretty sure having long, healthy fingernails would have served a great purpose in Grok's world.
                            But in all seriousness, I think I found the study you're looking for

                              Kids will be kids. Not everything children do should be considered "grokling behavior" simply because children are innocent. Yes, they are most likely farther tuned into themselves because of their subconscious freedom and all of that linking them nicely to their "needs" etc. But they are still children, and children eat glue so...lol. I don't know if I'd follow that....

                              But there is something still to say about listening and paying attention to the things our children do sometimes....once in a while, they do get it right.

                              ::: My 6 month old won't touch rice cereal and the other types of cereal variety, he keeps gagging when I try gerber items like mashed sweet potato......but he can't control himself when he see's his daddy and myself eating steaks, or chicken...or anything meat when it comes down to it. I once tried to put a grain of rice in his mouth (smushed it first, before going primal), he closed his mouth tight as can be. He loves home-made mashed sweet potatoes and carrots...his favorite! :::
