A young Chinese woman is undergoing medical tests in Beijing after dining on dirt for 11 years.
The 18-year-old from Inner Mongolia was taken to Beijing by her parents, who wanted to know why she finds dirt appetizing.
She told Chinese television she started the habit when she was just 7 years old when she consumed dirt that was attached to the roots of grass.
Yellow mud is her favorite. Her eating habits have caused problems for the family's next-door neighbor, who has a mud roof.
