Baobao, an 18-year-old girl from Inner Mongolia, has been eating dirt for 11 years!
She said that she now preferred the taste of yellow mud, as it did not contain sand or tree debris.
During the interview, Baobao estimated she had eaten about three tons of soil since she was first stricken by the urge to eat earth.
Baobao's addiction has had serious implications for her neighbour's roof, made from mud which is traditionally used as a weather resistant material.
According to CCTV, the young woman could not stop eating the roof and the neighbour's house is now almost demolished.
