It is well known that in rural Georgia people have (and continue to?)
eat clay. I believe the phenomenon is known throughout the southeast
and elsewhere. I don't think the exact reason is known, but a vitamin
deficiency has been suggested. Sorry, I can not provide any
references to more complete information.
