VIDEO: Man Eats Mud to Stay Healthy

A man consuming mud for the last 17 years claims that his bizarre habit has made him disease-free.

In fact, he has made mud his “bread and butter” as he eats 500 grams of mud every day.

According to Rameshwar, he started eating mud after suffering from a disease that caused blood to come out from his mouth. His doctors told him that there is no cure to his disease. Following this, Rameshwar began consuming mud that he believes cured his disease.

“When I got bathe in the Ganga, I eat sand. It keeps my stomach clean,” he said.

A local doctor said Rameshwar’s habit can cause him trouble.

“This is a disorder known as Pica. It is mainly found in children due to deficiency of calcium and mineral. But gradually it becomes a psychological disorder that creates the urge to consume such substances,” the doctor said.

According to the doctor, long term consumption of mud can cause ulcer and affect the appetite.

Watch the video below.

The Symptoms of PICA

Individuals with PICA compulsively eat non-food items with no nutritional value. While some items being consumed are relatively harmless, the disorder may also lead to serious consequences such as poisoning. It commonly affects children and pregnant women and is usually temporary.

According to Healthline, a person must eat nonfood items for at least one month to have this disorder.

Here are some of the things that you may eat regularly if you have Pica.

  • ice
  • buttons
  • soap
  • hair
  • clay
  • sand
  • dirt
  • cigarette ashes or unused remainder of a cigarette
  • glue
  • paint
  • feces
  • chalk

3-Year-Old Girl has Strange Condition that Keeps Her Awake During the Night

Everyone needs to sleep as this is the time the body needs to rejuvenate itself and keep you fresh the day after but there is this one girl who is awake all the time and her bizarre condition has frightened her parents.

Jessica, 3, acts like any other normal kid during the day. She plays, socializes, and haves fun with her parents. She also eats just like kids her age and does most things that children normally do.

At night, however, she acts differently. She does not sleep at all but while she is awake during the night, she does not interact with the people around her at all. It’s rather weird. It’s like she lives in a different world during the night – and that’s quite creepy, if you come to think of it.

According to her mother Tanya, “In the day time, she’s aware that everyone is there and if you spoke to her she would answer you. Whereas at night, it’s like you don’t exist.

Jessica’s parents have taken her to many doctors so they could try to solve her condition. One diagnosed her with epilepsy but after a couple of rigorous tests, her real condition has been discovered: eidetic imagery.

What is Eidetic Imagery?

Eidetic imagery is a medical condition wherein the patient sees vivid mental images that could be derived from an actual event or experience; however, it is also possible that the images are entirely made up or merely products of the patient’s imagination.

While the condition is not common, it has actually been identified in the early twentieth century.

With the diagnosis finally came the answers as to why Jessica acts bizarrely during the night. According to experts, Jessica is awake during this strange dream state but is merely acting out her actions, such as playing with her friends, even if she is on ‘night mode’.

Experts have also assured Tanya that Jessica is very much aware of what is happening around her in her ‘dream’ state; thus, they have no reason to fear that she might harm herself just like other sleepwalkers.

Child psychologists are now working with Jessica’s parents to find a solution to her condition so that she could finally sleep, something that her body and brain definitely need.

Our society has become superficial in the past decade. How do you live your life if the standard of society has become based on how many likes you get on Facebook, how many followers you have on Instagram, or how many re-tweets your Tweets got?

Sometimes, unfortunately, at the expense of getting more likes, people end up doing something stupid just for the sake of being “cool.”

See: Are These the Most Dangerous Selfies Ever Taken?

Take this 26-year-old from Russia, Alexander Chechik who accidentally killed himself while trying to appear “cool.”

The man decided to unpin a grenade and take a picture of him so he can send it to his friends.

Earlier that day, Chechik sent a photo of himself with a grenade with its pin removed. This prompted his friends to panic and ask if he was ok.

“Where are you? Are you ok?”

To which he answered, “Depends on what ok is in your understanding?”

Then he sent an image of the grenade without the pin.

His friend was obviously panicking at this moment.

“Listen, don’t do stupid things. Where are you?”

Ideas Fun shared that this is how the police found Chechik inside his car. According to the police report, they believe that Chechik thought that you can remove the pin of a grenade without it exploding. He thought that it will only explode if you throw it.

Apparently, he learned that lesson too late.

This is a sad tale of a sudden demise of someone who clearly had no plans to commit suicide.

What are grenades?

These are small bombs that have a small pin on the top part, pulling the pin will detonate the bomb. It is normally used in wars where the grenade is unpinned and then thrown at the direction of the enemy. This is to distract the enemies by the loud sound and the shrapnel and debris that flies around when a grenade explodes.
