Came across an interesting old report on eating earth and clay from 1895....I like reading about how widespread this practice is/was.

I started eating dirt when I was anemic. I was afraid of what was in the dirt so I switched to play sand. It looks clean. I don't eat it for the taste but for the texture. I know it is not good for my teeth but it hasn't hurt me.

Hi Ackee , HOw are you? I hope you are well, and Thank you. I will get better i guess.:) and yes, i really believe the only time most people crave clay is when they have some sort of defeciency in their body most likely iron. I only crave it when i am anemic. I am thinking about ordering from wanda on amazon. I will send you some if i do order.
Have anybody order from Wanda on Amazon,If so what did the clay taste like?

I have lost my taste for clay ... Lets se how long this will last.... Somebody brought me odowa from my country but this time it does not taste nice... It tastes sweet instead of earthy ... No cravings either...
Are the surfaces powdery......? If so, its tampered with. If not and its slightly darker in the inside or has a few dark red streaks then I understand why it would be sweet. Its a kind of sweet at the back of your tongue...kinda difficult to explain though.

Hi Henewaa I don't know where you can find good clay like the one in Ghana,Africa . I don't think in the US they have clay as good that one ..Lol we just go to construction sites and clay pit or order on line . But if you ever finds some please please let me know or send me a sample of Ghana clay ...It's looks so good on the video. Welcome to the site.
