Teen Eats 16 Toothbrushes, Iron Nail to Combat Soil Eating Habit
Doctors have successfully removed 16 toothbrushes and a three-inch iron from a teenage boy’s stomach after he began eating the objects to cure his addiction to eating soil.
Harish Devi, 14, ate the dental equipment after a holistic practitioner told him it would cure his soil-eating habit, Mirror UK reported.
His family also believed Harish, from Uttar Pradesh, India, had been possessed by a ghost and that consuming toothbrushes and nails would help heal him.
But after eating the items, Harish started feeling pain in his abdomen.

He was taken to Baba Raghav Das Medical College, where the bonkers discovery was made.
Doctors operated on the 14-year-old and took out the toothbrushes and a three-inch nail from his insides.
Following the removal of the foreign objects, Harish’s health has improved and doctors are hopeful he will make a full recovery soonest.
Gruesome photos show snippets from the surgery, with some of the toothbrushes being removed from the patient’s stomach.
One doctor can be seen holding up an X-ray to show the large iron nail in the middle of the youngster’s body.
