I'm not sure it's "bad" for you :P But I have two friends that have been biting their nails for as long as I can remember, and it looks like the part that's still attached to the skin has gone down an unnatural amount. It makes their fingers look stubby and gross.. haha :P It also looks really painful, because the skin that shows where the nail should be growing turns bright red.
I bite my nails, I don't think it's particularly bad for you, just gives you terrible looking hands if it's bad enough. I have also heard that nail biters are missing a certain vitamin, which is why they bite their nails, because your nails have it, but I'm not too sure. I think it's just habit. It's not a terribly hard habit to break if you're concerned about it.
yup.. teh ammount of dirt under your nails is disgusting and your gonna bite it off and it all goes in you mouth and into your belly. so you have the toilet, wash your hands and bite your nails? your neally there but do you use a scrubbing brush to get teh crap from under your nails? i didnt think so. yeah, dont do it ;)
We wash our hands often (hopefully) because we touch things constantly, and there are germs and bacteria everywhere. Unless you wash under your fingernails with each hand washing, biting your nails is essentially the same as licking every surface you touch.
Yet, I can't stop doing it.
yes nails are very dirty if u look at ur nails threw a microscope they look sooo gross and u wont ever want to bite them again after u c that my nails were supposavly clean well i thought they were and they still looked nasyt when i look under the microscope
... I can't ask you how to spell a word through text, because that means I spell it myself. That is like the stupidest question someone has ever asked me on here. I don't really care whether you can spell a word or not. I'm not testing you.
study a little bit of microbiology and you may retract that question. ( im just saying) besides your body needs some germs to keep up with fending off bad germs. its complicated but its really a bad habit but it will not kill you.
I bite my nails. And for all of the people saying that you are just putting all of the germs and dirt from under your nails into you mouth... that won't happen if your nails are too short for anything to go under them =p

Gross. Ya, eating dead skin is bad for you. It could be called a form of canibalism.
of course it is. its not clean and your nails end up looking short and disgusting.
