More than 500 million people around the world are pathological nail-biters according to our medical advisers. Is it caused by nervousness, anxiousness, stress, obsessive-compulsiv e disorder, or what? There are several reasons for chewing or biting your fingernails, or even your toenails.

During a summer school vacation, our medical groups invited teachers and guardians of several primary schools to present their pupils who have nail biting habit for a trip on a resort area in Nara, Japan for 40 days.

Our medical groups were trying to find the cause of nail biting. However, we suspected that there is only one or two causes, primarily stress.

40 pupils were gathered and the schools and guardians financed the entire expenses. After 3 hours of train trip, they arrived to a temple where they spent their vacation.

No pupils were informed about nail biting. They are free to do sightseeing and going around, getting wild chestnuts, and chasing mountain dears, except at 7:00 a.m. for breakfast, 12:00 noon for lunch and 6:00 p.m. for dinner. Of course, our groups were observing their nail biting habits.

We see and hear them laughing and shouting. The pupils enjoyed so much as there were no prohibitions and studies at all.

After a week of vacation, we found their nail biting habits had lessened. After three weeks of vacation, there were almost zero nail biting pupils. After 40 days of vacation, there was only one nail biting student.

With our interview with pupils, they enjoyed the trip without heavy studies in the school and were able to relate with their classmate or family. We came to understand that many young pupils have the same stress we just have. Stress reflected to nail biting habit for young students.

One of them who couldn’t stop nail biting had a family problem. It was a case of parent relational problem in the family.

In 40 days of observing 40 pupils from various schools, we concluded that nail biting is mainly caused by stress and some mental fatigue. We were able to gather valuable information not only on health matters but also on social and environmental matters. How about your study?
