Elderly woman eats over 2kg of sand daily


A story on social media has left everyone a bit baffled.

Kusma Vati, a 78-year-old woman, has a very unusual diet which apparently has kept her healthy over the years. Her diet consists of eating 2kgs of sand and gravel daily, which she has enjoyed for over six decades.

Kusma has said that she loves eating sand and doesn’t see any harm in doing so. It apparently has made her body tougher as she hasn’t visited a doctor during that time.

She started eating sand from the age of 15 when she experienced a stomach ache, and it’s been part of her life ever since.

Her family wants to get medical assistance to rid her of this weird addiction, but she refuses as she believes there isn't anything wrong with chowing down on sand.
