The next time you go digging for gold in your nose think about this…picking your nose…may increase your chances of getting Alzheimer’s.

· They’ve been trying to figure out Alzheimer’s for a lot of years…and they think a protein called beta-amyloid is a key cause of the disease. And a new report says beta-amyloid may be produced by the brain as a defense against pathogens introduced via the nose…like a dirty finger!

· So we need to stop! They recommend blowing your nose or saline rinses.

· So to stop doing it…or to get your kid to stop doing it…they say put a little band-aid on the tip of their finger. When the band-aid hits your nostril, it will remind you to knock it off.
