Usually eat dirt
The desire to eat “weird” things, such as dirt, may be a symptom of what is popularly known as pica syndrome. Picamalica is a disease that awakens in people the desire, sometimes uncontrollable, to eat inedible items or items with little or no nutritional value, such as stones, chalk, soap or dirt.
Treatment should be prescribed by a doctor and dietitian. In the most common cases, psychotherapy and changing eating habits contribute significantly to improving the syndrome.
