Wang Xianjun, 54, of Sichuan Province, started to snack on broken glass because he says it is ‘crispy and delicious.’
He recalls: “I accidentally swallowed a piece of thick fish bone, but nothing happened. With curiosity, I tried several pieces of broken glasses secretly and nothing happened also.”
From then on, from time to time Wang would eat a light bulb. “I am not eating it every day, but from time to time.
‘I only eat the light bulb during my breakfast, and each day no more than one bulb.”
When eating a light bulb Wang first smashes it before swallowing it piece by piece, sipping from a glass of water.
Wang’s family said they have taken him to have checkups in the hospital, but it would seem that his unusual diet has had no adverse effects.
