Keep fit and healthy... by EATING 2 POUNDS OF SAND EVERY DAY
New Delhi - An Indian granny has revealed she eats a kilogram of sand a day to keep fit and healthy.
Eighty-year-old Ram Rati considers sand an essential part of her daily diet and eats it before breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea.
Rati, who lives in Chinhar in Lucknow, told Asian News International: "When young, I tried it for fun once. Since then, I am used to it. My brothers and relatives pestered me to quit it but it was all in vain. I eat on an average around one or one-and-a-half kilos of sand per day."
Shikha, Rati's granddaughter, said: "The doctor said if she has no health problems, let her eat. We think it suits her health." - Ananova.com
I'm very surprised eating sand doesn't cause health problems. What the hell?
