Four Pound Hairball is Only One of the Weirdest Things Doctors Have Found Inside People

bill-swift - October 4, 2012

When I get a really base case of the munchies, I reach for healthy things in the fridge--carrot sticks, pears, Jim Beam on the rocks with with a twist. But a 19-year-old girl in India (who apparently has never heard of Lunchables) reaches for something different...Her hair. Doctors discovered a four pound hairball in the girl's belly after she complained she hadn't been able to drink or eat anything for several days (even hair?).

How does one get a 4 lb. hairball stuck between their stomach and small intestine? Apparently it's because the girl 'had a bad habit of eating her hair and chalk while in class, and the combination ended up stuffing her insides to the gills.' So if simply eating your own hair wasn't gross enough, this girl had to one-up herself and also start munching on chalk like it was those little valentine heart candies, creating a cement mixture in stomach thick enough for someone to scratch their initials into with a stick before it dries.

And if that isn't weird enough for you, check out the gallery for even stranger things surgeons have pulled out of people.
