Through the years and from time to time there have been conjectures, but not in France, about what now counts as an established fact. Yes, according to the latest research, picking nose has been found to be hereditary. It is among the many things we get from our parents. Fortunately or unfortunately a good sense of humor is not among those things.
Professor Saunders, who headed the research team, has pointed out that even the choice of nostril is affected by you genes. So you need to observe your mom or dad more often to understand the truth about whether you are inclined to pick you left or your right nostril.
So, kids, the next time your parents rebuke you for picking your nose, you know which way to point.
