Woman eats rocks for more than 20 years

22 posts in this topic

A woman has told of how she eats rocks that have been picked up off the ground.

For more than 20 years, Teresa Widener, a 45-year-old woman from Bedford, Virginia, has regularly sucked the dirt off rocks before crunching them between her teeth.

The mother of two, who works with special needs children, suffers from pica which is a disorder that causes people to eat inedible objects.

I'd like to know what brand of toothpaste she uses because I need some of that.

What I want to know is why this silliness is even news?

Are we supposed to admire her or something?

I knew a pregnant woman who craved dirt, but this was only during pregnancy.

When she was crunching the rock in the video, it put my teeth on edge. How has she got any teeth left?

I was wondering if she had a septic tank or was on a sewer system.

That made my teeth hurt watching it, and hearing the grinding noises gave me the goosebumps lol. She does know there's pills you can get over the counter for iron deficiency XD

I'm wondering whether he likes more igneous rocks, sedimentary rocks or metamorphic rocks.

You know, rock isn't just a rock, there are many types and depending on which one it is, it may grumble or it may grumble her teeth.

Also the chemical miture varies a lot.

Maybe she's just eating sandstone

I bet they taste much better with a dollop of tomato or brown sauce :)
