    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Keep fit and healthy... by EATING 2 POUNDS OF SAND EVERY DAY

    http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_i...9528298791S530

    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?

    Well, she is a human, and by definition, a mammal, a chordate, and above all, a protostome.

    Sea cucumbers are equinoderms, which are also protostomes, and they eat and poo sand.

    So either sand eating is some sort of "legacy" gene from a common sand-eating ancestor... or she is just fucking nuts. :icon_conf

    I read somewhere that a lot of ancient egyptians had smoothly rounded teeth from all the sand in their bread.

    This reminds of the story about an old lady that drank her own urine because she thought it was the reason was still alive and reasonably healthy at 80 years old.

    I keep telling women to swallow cuz of all the zinc in the jing. Zinc is good for the immune system. Still, they do not want to listen, and thus refuse my fountain of youth... go figures...
