If you were and sometimes still are a nail biter, by chewing your nails help your immune system?

My sd21 was over the other night and this is what she said she is a nail biter and all those years she's bitten her nails paid off she says she never gets sick, something about the bacteria in her nails some how worked with her immune system. I was just listening to her. Let her talk even though I am not sure.

Your thoughts?
