Eight bad habits turn out to be good

Many studies show that not all of our inappropriate habits are as bad as we think.

Urinate in the shower

Dr. Billy Goldberg of the New York University of Medicine has surveyed about 1,000 women about their bathing habits and nearly 75% admitted they had “peed on their legs” at least once in their lifetime.

Billy Goldberg believes that is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. Uric acid and ammonia in the urine can help prevent fungus in your toes.

To spit

Spitting is unclean behavior, especially if it’s done in a public place. However, when you are exercising, spitting is good for you, as it can make breathing easier.

Normally, we breathe through our nose, which warms the air and makes it more humid, allowing the body to absorb oxygen more efficiently. But when we exercise, we tend to breathe through our mouths, which causes the body to produce a lot of saliva, which obstructs our airways. Therefore, it is completely normal to remove the slime secreted by jogging by spitting it out, and even helpful.

Chewing gum

Gum doesn’t have any nutritional benefits, of course, but a team of St. John’s University scientists. Lawrence (New York) proves that chewing gum has a better effect than coffee. Chewing gum can help you focus, boost memory, reduce stress and balance hormones by raising cortisol levels.


Most of us do not know that unconsciously, each person’s body “fart” (fart) about 14 times a day, about 3-5 times while sleeping. As a rule, your digestive tract begins to produce CO2 and methane gas (CH4) about 6 hours after eating. Deflation helps your body get rid of those gases. If you’re trying to hold it off, it can cause a lot of negative health effects, at least stomach upset or bloating.


Burping after eating is really good for your stomach, as it helps to release gas. Inhibiting belching and keeping gas in the stomach can cause gastric juice to shoot into the esophagus, which in turn can cause chest pain.

But if you burp too much during the day, you should probably have it checked by your doctor, as this could be a symptom of acid reflux.

Bite nails

When you bite your nails, you swallow some of the bacteria that exist on and in the nail. This results in your immune system starting to produce white blood cells, which help fight these bacteria. Your body also has a mechanism for remembering this bacterium in its memory bank, so if you encounter a similar bacterium a second time, you’ll have lymphocytes that can fight defeat it.

What’s more, some studies show that kids who suck their thumbs or nibble on their nails have a lower risk of allergies.

Eat a rust

According to some research published in the National Library of Medicine (PubMed), this somewhat horror habit can actually help boost your immune system. According to the scientists’ explanation, nasal rust can fight bacteria that cause tooth decay. When you eat a rust, you activate the immune system to release the body’s white blood cells to fight off bacteria.

Lazy shower

Of course, no one likes people who are lazy to bathe. However, if you bathe every day, you will lose some of the essential oils in your skin and hair. This oily layer helps to retain water and protect the body. Even hot, soap-free water can destroy many of the beneficial bacteria your skin needs to stay radiant and elastic.

So it’s completely natural and even healthy to be lazy sometimes.
