Man Addicted To Eating Bricks, Mud and Gravel


An Indian man says he is addicted to eating bricks, gravel and mud. Pakkirappa Hunagundi, 30, first developed a taste for the non-edible objects when he was 10. Ever since he says he has consumed up to three kilos of debris a day found lying in his village in Karnataka, India. But despite his strange eating disorder – thought to be caused by a condition called Pica – he insists he hasn’t suffered any ill-effects.
