5 Bad Habits That Are "Good For You"

A new article in a British newspaper just came out, claiming that some "bad habits" are actually healthy & good for you. Not sure this makes me feel any better about any of them (haha!), but here you go:

Dr Hilary Longhurst, an immunologist from the UK, says
‘Unless your hands are filthy, the bugs we encounter when biting our nails could boost our immune system.’
Dr Nick Read, a British gastroenterologist says burping may in fact protect your body against damage from stomach acid.
Dr. Read says "releasing the gas eases pain and bloating, especially if you have a sensitive gut that becomes bloated regularly."
This cracking can make a joint feel more flexible,’ says Dr Chris Edwards, a rheumatologist.
‘People’s joints tend to feel more comfortable after cracking — this may be because they have stretched out the joint and have a greater degree of movement.’
Dr Read says eating in bed aids digestion, because you are relaxed. Stress of any sort will interfere with and even stop digestion.
