Booger Bug

I know this sounds gross but I swear it's true. People in some indigenous tribes in the Amazon never spread diseases or need to blow their noses, because they let the xikatha bug eat their boogers. This small green insect, humorously dubbed the "booger bug" by anthropologists, feeds off of nasal discharge and causes a pleasant tickling sensation in the human nose when scouting for food. The American Medical Association doesn't want you to know about this because it would eliminate 47% of all visits to family doctors.
