45-year-old Teresa Widener suffers from a condition that has her craving the taste of rocks and soil.
The mother of two says she can break rocks in her mouth with ease and even keeps some in her house in case she needs them. "If I know I have some at my house I feel better, just knowing they're there...they're there for me when I'm upset or whatever," she said. "Mmm-hmm, yeah. They crunch on my teeth."
Teresa often uses a hammer to break up larger rocks in to small pieces in her kitchen so that they are easier to eat. The condition she suffers from is known as Pica, sufferers have a craving for inedible objects that can include anything from toilet paper to metal and anything in between.
