I’m addicted to eating plastic, says US teen

London -  A US teenager says that she has consumed more than 60,000 plastic goods in the past 11 years, and would even prefer it over food.

TLC show ‘My Strange Addiction’ has shown people being addicted to everything from corn starch to sleeping with hairdryers.

But the new series, which starts this weekend, promises its most bizarre subjects yet, the Daily Mail reported.

18-year-old Kailyn, from Sacramento, California, can be seen crunching on a variety of items in one of the show’s trailers, ranging from water bottles to CD cases.

“I have eaten 12 remotes, over 5,000 beads, over 1,000 cocktail swords, 100 forks, about ten water bottles, two pacifiers, three CD cases, about 50 hangers, about 25 plastic lids on to-go cups...,” Kailyn said.

 â€œPlastic is something I want and I feel like I need.”

On being asked why she loves plastic so much, she explained that it is not the taste as much as the texture.

“It’s the way it crunches and feels and it has a rough but at the same time smooth texture to it,” she says.

The texture of a television remote control is perhaps one of her favourites, Kailyn revealed.

She also described how she goes about eating a TV remote.

“I’ll take a button off, and I’ll put it on each side of my mouth, then I swallow it.”

The plastic items she snacks on most often, though, are cocktail swords, which she finds in the restaurant where she works.

“I’m a hostess at a restaurant and I get a lot of my plastic from there,” she said.

“My favourite kind of plastics are the little cocktail swords that you get in your drink.

“On a normal, non-stressful day, it’ll be a whole sword, 15 times a day.”

Kailyn also confessed that her habit could be harmful to her health.

“The fact that I am eating this much in a week is huge,” she added.
