Woman Suffers From Rare Disorder: She Eats Couch Cushions
Adele Edwards of Bradenton, Florida, USA, has been eating the foam inside couch cushions for 21 years. She has been diagnosed with a rare disorder called Pica, the persistent craving and compulsive eating of non-food substances. Like many addicts, Miss Edwards didn't get hooked overnight.
She started by chewing the cushion foam before spitting it out. But it wasn't long until she began to swallow each small piece of cushion she put in her mouth. Miss Edwards said: In the last year I've eaten seven sofas. I unzip the cushions and snack on the foam inside. And once I start I just can't stop.The Presurfer
