Re: Dirt Eaters
In Response To: Re: Dirt Eaters ()
I too had a fond taste for the clay dirt and was very ill at the time. I couldn't eat real food but desired the taste of clay dirt. Here in Texas where I live when the garden was plowed for spring/fall planting I could smell the clay. After a very serious surgery my doctor found this cyst in my stomach and he did testing and found that I was lacking the iron that I needed. I don't possibly see how this is can be compared to cocaine. After the surgery I tried to eat the clay dirt and it was not a pleasant taste. I don't even smell it anymore and the garden is ready for planting.
