Teresa Widener Craves Rocks

May 22, 2012

Teresa Widener has managed to grasp global attention with her pica eating disorder, and specifically her love of eating rocks. The mother of two breaks them into tinier pieces and sometimes just sucks the dirt off them to harvest their flavor. Widener says she enjoys the earthy taste and crunchy flavor of the rocks and uses them to help her iron deficiency.

In addition to rocks, another common form of pica is eating dirt.
