Remaja Perempuan 19 Tahun Ketagihan makan sabun

Remaja perempuan berumur 19 tahun ini dinasihatkan oleh doktor supaya berhenti makan sabun sebab ianya boleh membunuh akibat toksik, tapi remaja ini tetap
ketagih untuk makan sabun. Remaja bernama Tempestt Henderson dari Florida ini makan 5 ketul sabun buku seminggu bersama serbuk sabun basuh….
I remember the first time I dipped my fingers into the washing powder,’ she said.
‘I dabbed the powder onto my tongue and it tasted so sweet, and salty…it just felt so right. I was hooked straight away.’
The nursing student says she knew eating soap was dangerous, but ignored the warning labels on the box in favour of licking the deadly powder daily, from the minute she woke up in the morning.
Soon she had moved onto licking the bubbles of soap in the shower, too, a habit that was getting her through up to five bars of soap a week.
‘In the shower, I like to lather up a green bar of soap, and lick the bubbles. And as the soap disintegrates, I pop a tiny amount of the soap into my mouth and suck it. It’s heavenly.

‘I love the clean feeling it gives me. Eating soap feels so much cleaner than just washing with it.’

After six months of eating soap, unhappy Tempestt decided to be brave and seek medical advice. She was diagnosed with a rare disorder called PICA, which doctors told her is characterised by an appetite for substances that are largely non-nutritive.

Sufferers have been known to compulsively eat metal, coins, chalk, batteries and even toothbrushes. It can often be caused by a mineral deficiency, which explains why pregnant women often crave eating coal when needing iron.
But in Tempestt’s case doctors believed the condition was bought on by stress.
