Todd is the afternoon guy, family guy, and janitor guy at Cat Country 107.1. He was born and raised in Texas. Until he moved to Ft. Myers, drove his horse, Lulu, back and forth to work. Even though he's been on the radio in various places like Houston, Shreveport, Ft. Walton Beach and Pennsylvania, (??) he has no idea where he left the keys to his horse. Somewhere along the way he got married and had three beautiful children: Trale, Mason, and Kyli. He speaks 2 year old fluently. Todd's eating habits may be strange, but he loves country music.
According to medical research, your mother was wrong about a lot of stuff. Here are five bad habits that it turns out are actually good for you.
1. Biting your nails
This helps expose your body to new germs but in very small numbers. That lets your immune system prepare antibodies to fight them without the risk of getting sick and picking your nose and eating it does the same thing.
It protects your body from getting damaged by stomach acid. If you leave the gas inside, it can loosen the muscle that separates your stomach from your esophagus, and allow stomach acid to splash out and cause heartburn.
3. Passing gas
Doing this helps to prevent you from having a buildup of gas in your intestines. That can cause damage or at least a lot of pain.
4. Eating in bed
This can help you digest your food better. Stress causes your body to interrupt digestion so if you're relaxed and horizontal, your body breaks everything down completely.
This helps your breathing, especially if you're exercising. When you exercise, you breathe through your mouth, which causes inflammation in your throat so spitting helps to clear your breathing passages.
