Meet Kailyn from Colorado, US.
Two years ago, when Kailyn was 18 years old and working as a hostess, she was featured on the popular show My Strange Addiction on TLC. She appeared on the third season of the show, which portrayed her extraordinary addiction towards plastic. Ever since Kailyn was a little girl she loved eating plastic more than any edible human food. She would eat cups, bottles, CD cases, straws and even remote controls. She chewed through at least 15 plastic items a day – especially cocktail swords or plastic beads. The girl has eaten more than 60,000 pieces of plastic over the course of 11 years. According to her, plastic doesn’t taste that good, but she’s addicted to its texture. TV remote controls are one of her favorite snacks. She eats them up button by button. The cocktail swords are also a favorite and she admitted she eats about 15 of them per day.
Kailyn knows that eating plastic is bad for her health, to say the least, but she can’t do anything about her strange addiction.
