Swallowing phlegm, as nasty as it might or might not sound, strengthens your immune system

That makes no sense. I've swallowed my snot since the beginning of time and my immune system is shit.

Then why do I get a lung infection every time I catch a cold?

The bacteria buildup in the mucus is pretty much a training exercise for your immune system, and after doing it for a long time your immune system learns how to demolish said bacteria with incredible efficiency

I remember reading about some studies done about it somewhere a few years back

Pretty much the same when if you eat your nails and skin near them you get a better immune system. Probably not true, but I've eaten my fingers since the beginning of time, and hardly I get sick

The problem is, the phlegm seems to get gets stuck in the throat and cause coughing.

Results vary from person to person. But for most people, consuming phlegm improves your long term health.

Because having a good immune system doesn't mean you're 100% immune to all disease.

I first heard about it from my dad a few years ago, then looked further into it. I read a couple articles about it, and one of them linked me to a study done on the subject. In something like 70% of people, swallowing phlegm strengthens the immune system.

This is the best I can do.

"Friedrich Bischinger, an Austrian doctor specializing in lungs advocates using fingers to pick and ingesting nasal mucus, states people who do so get a natural boost to their immune system.

The mucus contains a cocktail of antiseptic enzymes that kill or weaken many of the bacteria that become entangled in it, so reintroducing the 'crippled' microorganisms may afford the immune system an opportunity to produce antibodies in relative safety."

How to know you're not one of those other 30%?

I wouldn't count it on being true just because of that. Since I have never done those things and I rarely get sick

Another fun fact about your nose: Your nose is within your eyes' vantage point constantly, but your brain is trained to not register it.

I have an immune disorder (Diabetes) which makes my immune system weak as shit.

(I.e. most flus have a way higher fatality rate among Diabetics than they do non-Diabetics)

So either way it's be useless to even try.

Having glasses with frames always in-shot, per se, I find it very easy to filter shit out. I've had hair in my vision for about 6 years aswell, partially.

you have whats called bad luck Brian syndrome. You will be shit on by life and there is little you can do about it to be honest. Taking vitamin, and calcium supplements, as well as drinking lots of milk and OJ? You'll still get osteoporosis at age 25 XD

From now on I'll spit all my phlegm in a jar and when it is full, I shall put it in a blender with some strawberries and bananas to make a smoothie of greater immunity.
