not out your back garden - pure, organic mud.
is this a thing?
We're incomparable. Friends....please this this
Humans are unable to synthesize Vitamin B12 and one hypothesis is that geophagy may be an adaptive behaviour in order to obtain this necessary nutrient from bacteria living within soil.
yeah it is 99.99999999999% bad for you but it contains a small trace of vitamin DC32 which is hard to source from elsewhere. Or whatever.
when i was in first year of primary school me and this girl called samantha would go out to the field and pretend to be cows... eat grass and mud and that, both got terrible diarrhoea from it. never really had any interaction with her after that but i still see her about occasionally and think about eating grass and pooing. she works at the bakery so it's not a positive thing.
some of the population lived in such extreme poverty that they ate mud. Didn't do them a whole deal of good from what I remember
despite not working. cheers anyway!
