A 78-year-old Indian girl is capable of swallowing a lot of sand, a strange flavor she has become accustomed to for various reasons
Today let me be happy, just me, with or without everyone, with grass and sand. An elderly woman living in India has taken this poem by Pablo Neruda too literally and is eating almost exclusively grains, lots of grains of sand. Her name is Kusma Vati, she is almost eighty years old and since she was fifteen she has been devouring beaches and bathing establishments as if there was no tomorrow.
Why exactly this absurd diet? The quantity he swallows every day is impressive: two kilos that end up in his stomach. There are other cases of this type in the world, but the lady has a particular record regarding the total weight of sand. In addition to tasting, he dedicates himself to chewing every single grain, as if it were soft chewing gum.
Very special statements
"I like it and I consider it a food in all respects, it has never hurt me." These are the words the woman released to the journalists who took an interest in her case. The articles about Kusma are often accompanied by eloquent photos of the same protagonist of this story with her lips full of sand. The absence of negative consequences for the body is equally surprising.
There would be 63 consecutive years of "diet" and there would never have been any problems for the health of the elderly. In particular, he would never have met a doctor to be visited and the almost 80 candles on which to blow are a sensational proof of his statements that have made and still make the reader turn up their noses. How did the very rare culinary passion start?
