Why Eating Bogeys is Good For You

Ever wondered if eating snot is good for you? Or why people have tonsils? Is there any cream in cream crackers? Why is the sea blue? And if kangaroos keep their babies in their pouches, what happens to all the poo? Journalist, broadcaster and author Mitchell Symons answers all these crazy questions and plenty more in this wonderfully funny and addictive book of freaky facts and totally useless trivia! (And yes, eating bogeys is good for you – but only your own!)
