Viral Video: millions of bacteria reside inside your nail- check it out

Nail biting is something that has always been associated with an unhealthy habit. It is considered dangerous for various reasons. Despite this, many people around us bite their nails. However, a video is going viral on social media that shows a microscopic view of nails, and after watching it, it can probably fill any nail-biter with a feeling of disgust.

The viral video has been shared by the lab technologist on Instagram. In the viral video, it can be seen that millions of bacteria were present and crawling inside them. Biting these nails with teeth means eating bacteria that enter our stomach and give rise to various diseases. While we keep believing that what is the reason behind our stomach problems is whether we have consumed unclean food, the truth is that the germs and bacteria that enter our body through these pores make it harmful to our body.

After watching this viral video, we should emphasize cleaning and care of nails. Keeping your nails trimmed and clean regularly can reduce the accumulation of bacteria, improving your health. These bacteria are always present in various parts of our body, and even the inner part of the nails cannot be exempted from it. Additionally, adopting healthier coping mechanisms for stress and anxiety, such as mindfulness or exercise, can help reduce the urge to bite nails, promoting overall well-being and hygiene.

The viral video has received 112 million views and 2 million likes. After watching the video, users shared many reactions and made some funny comments. While commenting humorously, a user writes, ‘The reason how food gets tastier,’

Another user writes that it is fake, ‘it’s fake, worms don’t spawn out of anywhere in the nails, plus nails are kept clean, so please clean your nails and don’t spread misinformation.’
