Woman with strange addiction spends thousands on talcum powder

Approved ~~ MJM

A woman with a rare medical condition says she has spent around £8,000 on Johnson’s baby powder which she eats every day.

Lisa Anderson, 44, from Paignton, Devon, has a rare compulsion known as Pica to eat inedible objects. It occasionally affects pregnant women.

She began eating the talcum powder when she was 29 after using it on her young son following a bath.

She eats the powder from the back of her hand around 40 times a day and spends £10 a week on her craving.
