3-Year-Old Has Rare Condition That Causes Her To Eat Lightbulbs, Wood, Rocks

| Filed under: Sad SadHealth

This is unbelievable.

3-year-old Natalie Hayhurst has a rare condition called Pica, which causes her to have a craving for pretty much everything.

Named after the magpie bird, which eats everything in sight, Pica creates a compulsion to eat things that aren't food. It has driven young Natalie to eat anything from wood to rocks to even lightbulbs.

The disease could be fatally dangerous, which her mom Colleen had a first run-in with when Natalie ate a lightbulb. She was rushed to a hospital where doctors performed surgery to remove the glass.

Wow. So scary.

Poor girl. To get more info on Natalie and her condition, watch above.
