    Wow. That is messed-up crazy.

    It seems that a few of these people who consumer the baby powder DO feel they have gained weight, not lost it.

    It also seems that Talcum powder has been linked to cause cervical cancer in women.

    Apparently a condition called "Pica" is what makes people consume the powder.

    Also, the cravings people described are so strong, that they compare it to a serious drug addiction.

    This all has the makings of a good HOUSE episode...

    I worked with a girl from the country when I was in high school who carried a ziploc bag of cooked red clay dirt. It looked like brittle and she just snacked on it during her shift. Weird.

    Not everyone. I was more leaning towards them using the mineral and Iron deficiency.

    Hey, wasn't there an episode with some punk-ass kid with TOO much Iron who House kept trying to and eventually beat at chess? His only cure was to bleed for years until all the excess Iron was out of his body?

    It can't be good for you either way you want to ingest it.
