Could having long nails pose health risks?

CNN– Some say the cost of beauty can be high. In the case of long fingernails, that cost could be health risks.

New studies show long nails could leave you vulnerable to fungus and bacteria that get trapped underneath. One study even found MRSA, an antibiotic-resistant bacteria that can cause serious infections in hospitals.

Researchers say you can transfer the bacteria into your system by scratching yourself, picking your nose or sucking on your fingers.
