I eat rocks. not just any rock, red sedimentary sandstone rocks from the western states such as Utah, Mexico, and Arizona. I have done some damage to my teeth, worn the enamel down significantly in some places. I try to keep it at bay and once I realized the amount of damage possible, I lessened the behavior. I just love the feeling of the soft crunch of the rock and the taste is amazing. I believe it is due to being severely anemic, though I am not positive. If it were not for the damage to my teeth I would eat as much as possible. However knowing that it is bad for my teeth isn't enough to keep the behavior totally at bay. Once every couple of weeks or so I will break off some of the rock to eat.
