Re: Dirt Eaters
In Response To: Dirt Eaters ()
WARNING: slightly icky stuff...
The article Richard linked to listed constipation as one of the side-effects of eating too much dirt. Irene, is it possible that overzealous dirt-munching may have done your ancestors in by causing severe constipation?
P.S. I'm from rural Mississippi, and I've heard of dirt-eating, though I've never tried it myself. The dirt around here doesn't look too appetizing; maybe it's an aquired taste.
