Woman can't stop eating sand

(CBS) - In a story sure to make your teeth hurt. A 70-year-old woman in India has a bizarre sand-eating habit. She would be a perfect candidate for the TLC TV show, "Addicted."

Doctors believe she has a disease called Pica. Pica is a disorder characterized by an appetite for non-nutritive substances like metal, hair, dirt, plastic and such things and is generally found in children and old age people.

Other Feed goodies include: Caught on tape video of a fighter jet shot down in Libya; Saturday night's "super moon" and Director Peter Jackson released the first set photos from "The Hobbit."
