April 2nd, 2014 – Pictures: Meet Indian Man Addicted To Eating Mud, Bricks, Gravel & Rocks, Pakkirappa Hunagundi

Meet Pakkirappa Hunagundi, an Indian house builder who is popular for eating mud, bricks and gravel.

The 30-year-old man has been devouring the non-edible objects since he acquired the taste when he was 10-year-old.

According to Daily Mirror, he has consumed up to 3 kilograms of debris per day. He feasts on the non-edible objects he finds lying around his village in Karnataka.

But despite his strange eating disorder – thought to be caused by a condition called Pica – Pakkirappa insists he hasn’t suffered any ill-effects. And he wants to use his strange eating habits to make some money for his family by travelling across India showcasing his talents.

He causally chews on freshly baked bricks he finds scattered around his village. And he uses nothing more than a glass of water to help digest the building material which he says tastes “A1” – an Indian term meaning the best.

Pakkirappa said:

“I love eating them. It has become a part of my life. I started at the age of 10. Now it feels like a necessity to me. I can skip meals, but not bricks or mud. I have suffered no side effects. My teeth are absolutely fine. I can bite into the hardest stone without a problem.”

    Hmm,all these years as a nurse i have never come across such sickness like this.This is more than i can handle or state his reasons for the urge.Talking of side effect, is showing on him already because he don’t look 30,please get a real job,don’t use this as a gift,is a curse and sickness.I don’t know how much you think you will make but bear in mind that when you eventually have the main side effect,all the money you make from eating this can’t save your life or health here by creating more problem for your family.May God heal you in Jesus name.

    This is not ordinary, the man is possess & needs deliverance, he should visit Tb Joshua (SCOAN). I ve watched thru Emmanuel Tv how some wit similiar cases had bn healed in d name of Jesus Christ or he can go to any man of God that have the gift of deliverance.

    Yeah. This is for real. When I was little I eat powder sands,chalks and real face powder. Now that I grew up I loved to eat ice blocks. At least I eat more than 40 ice blocks a day. Without this ice blocks,all my body wl shivering. I stay in below 0 degree city ,here in USA. When ever I come across clay and sands in nigeria. My body still craving for it. But I do stick with my ice blocks instead. Do you all know the diagnosis for it?. Iron deficiency. That’s what my doctor says.
