Filed under: Dutch first,General,Science by Branko Collin @ 10:02 am

The city of Venlo will get a clinic specifically to cure nail biters from their destructive habit, reports daily De Volkskrant (Dutch). A treatment at the so-called O Centrum (Onychophagia Centre) takes two hours. The clinic started last month, and opens its doors officially in September. “Patients” will get to wear a type of mouth guard, the Preventor, that, er, should prevent them from biting their nails.
