January 4, 2012 / Dr. Toad

Like many Seattleites huddling indoors and breathing each other’s viruses in this sickly weather, I’m currently battling an invasion with my trusted treadmill of snot. The Stranger‘s Jonathan Golob is on it:

To an invader, this is a nightmare to navigate: tangled chains of protein and sugar, with every nook and cranny crammed with water molecules. […]

All together, the body makes about a liter of snot a day—probably a bit more in the average toddler.

Best of health to us all!
