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:

BITING YOUR NAILS
 
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.’
 
 
 
BURPING
 
Dr Nick Read, a British gastroenterologist says burping may in fact protect your body against damage from stomach acid.
.
 
PASSING WIND
 
Dr. Read says "releasing the gas eases pain and bloating, especially if you have a sensitive gut that becomes bloated regularly."
 
 
KNUCKLE CRACKING
 
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.’
 
 
EATING IN BED
 
Dr Read says eating in bed aids digestion, because you are relaxed. Stress of any sort will interfere with and even stop digestion.
