Many Have Addictions, But You Might Think These Vices Are Impossible To Swallow—Literally!

     You may have seen TLC series My Strange Addiction, but many may be scratching their head as to how ingestion is even medically possible. The disorder is called Pica, which entails the consumption of various non-nutritive items—e.g., aerosols, dirt, metallic objects and/or even feces!

Despite the health hazards to themselves, some people eat these potentially poisonous products in order to fill a psychological and/or emotional void. However, these toxic treats seem like they would not be the least bit enjoyable!

TRY FRESHENING YOUR BREATH WITH AEROSOLS!

HOW IS THIS ONE EVEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT SEVERELY CHOKING??

SOME PEOPLE CHEW ON PENS AND OTHER PLASTIC ITEMS, BUT IMAGINE ACTUALLY EATING SUCH THINGS!

EVEN WITH BITE-SIZE PIECES, HOW DOES SHE STILL HAVE HER TEETH??

Again, these disorders are real! (Do attempt to reenact what’s shown here.) If you or a loved one is suffering from anything along these lines, please seek medical and/or psychological help immediately. Addiction is a serious condition, so show love and support to those in need.
