We have been hearing this from our elders since childhood. People point out those who poke their nose and also make fun of them. But have you tried to know why people do this? Is there any scientific aspect behind this? Well, one thing is also that not only humans do this, but animals also do this. Scientists have tried to understand why people put their fingers in their nose. According to a research study published in the Journal of Zoology, there is also a possibility of spreading bacteria like staphylococcus by putting a finger in the nose. If staphylococcus bacteria spread in the body, apart from pneumonia, there can be serious infections related to heart valves and bones. Scientist Anne-Claire Fabre, the lead author of this research study, says that there is little evidence as to why humans and other animals do this. He said that psychologically some serious studies have been done about putting finger in the nose, but biologically nothing better has been written about it. Monkeys can often be seen putting fingers in their noses. A primate named Aye-Aye found in Madagascar also does something similar. Researchers have learned that this primate puts the longest finger of the hand in its nose. To understand this behavior, researchers used CT scan imaging technique. Scientists have learned that the aye-aye has a special finger to do this, it uses its middle finger to do so. Fabre says that it is possible that this habit has also developed in humans. However, by doing this, bacteria can spread in the body. Still more study is needed about this. \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t Most Read Stories Source: www.tv9hindi.com"
