Girl eats diet of sponges and soap

Kerry Trebilcock likes nothing better than tucking in to a washing up sponge with hot sauce or mustard.

Kerry suffers from a rare eating disorder known as pica which causes her to crave otherwise inedible objects. On a typical day she will slice up sponges or soaps and eat them with her meals, at one point eating as many as five whole sponges every day. Thankfully Kerry has been receiving help and support for her condition and is hoping to break the habbit one day soon. "One day I will beat this and be able to have a shower or do the washing-up without feeling hungry," she says.

"She said: "The sauces and dipping the sponges in drinks softened them and I'd chew them until the flavour was gone."

Sponges and soap are probably healthier than a typical american junk food menu.

Sponges and soap are probably healthier than a typical american junk food menu. Certainly a better source of fiber...absolutely NO problem with "regularity"

Instead of putting her picture in the paper eating sponges and making her look like a celebrity, someone should be taking the sponges away from her. This is so wrong.

She can take a dump and wipe her butt at the same time.
