(Scroll down for video) A perfectly healthy man claims that he regularly eats nails and glass.
Miner Long Yunsheng of China, has uploaded a video showing how he eats iron nails.
Yunsheng is seen swallowing several nails, about 2-inches long, and washing them down with a cup of water. Yunsheng, who works for a mining company, said he developed his crazy habit of swallowing nails 32 years ago after watching other people swallowing nails.
“I was 17 or 18 years old. I was not sure that the man, who could do that, was willing to teach me. If a teacher liked you, he taught you, otherwise, he refused to teach,” Yunsheng said. “I guess he liked me because he taught me how to do it,” Yunsheng added.
Yunsheng also said that later on, he added glass and ceramic tiles to his weekly grocery shopping list. Yunsheng is said to be in good health.
