TLC – My Strange Addiction; Girl Love’s Eating Plastic [Video]
An 18-year-old girl from Sacramento, California is addicted to eating plastic and snacks on water bottles, hangers and TV remotes. The teen will appear on the new TLC show "My Strange Addiction." She figures she has eaten over 60,000 plastic goods over the past 11 years-- and will even choose it over food.
Over the years she's eaten 12 remotes, over 5,000 beads, over 1,000 cocktail swords, 100 forks, about ten water bottles, two pacifiers, three CD cases, about 50 hangers, about 25 plastic lids on to-go cups.
She says plastic is something she wants and needs. She likes the texture of plastic, not the taste.
