Los Angeles : In a bizarre news, a 78-year-old woman credits her astounding health to daily sand and gravel diet.

Yes, don't be surprised. Kusam Vati has been stuffing her mouth with two kilos of sand and gravel every day for six decades. She believes that her unusual diet is the key reason of her good health.

In the shocking picture, you can see Vati spending hours shovelling sand into her mouth every day. She also likes to chew on the walls of her own house and adds, "I have been eating sand and gravel for around 63 years now, I love eating them and I don’t think they have any harmful effects. I haven’t suffered any problems in my stomach and mouth and my teeth are absolutely fine- if anything it’s made them tougher. I can bite into the hardest stone without a problem."

She clarifies that she never had any problem or visit any doctor following her different diet.

Her bizarre taste for stone has stunned everyone in her area of the city ‘I have never seen a doctor because there has just been no need, for as long as I can remember I’ve felt perfectly fine.

Talking about her historic diet, she says, "I started eating sand at the age of 15 and I had a bad stomach ache but that didn’t last long and now it feels like all this is very normal to me. I feel as though the minerals in the sand give me the energy to work in the crop fields. My grandchildren insist I get medical help to get rid of this addiction but I see no need for it. I am healthy and fit all thanks to sand."

Kusma’s grandchildren feel the need to get rid of this peculiar habit but she says 'no need'.
