What Are Boogers Made of?

Answer

Boogers are made up primarily of mucus and dirt. Our bodies produce about 1 liter of mucus per day and a lot of this mucus is in our nose and acts as a filter to trap pollutants that we breathe in. Dirt, dust, pollen and dander that we breathe in is trapped in our boogers instead of making it to our lungs. You can find more information here: http://kidshealth.org/kid/talk/yucky/booger.html
