A lot of our New Year’s resolution was to eat clean this year. Some of us may have stuck by it and go to sleep cranky having eaten just salad with a side of air for dinner. Others are still hoping for that extra dose of #mondaymotivation to get them started!
However, this woman from Indonesia has definitely taken “clean” eating a little bit too seriously.
A user who goes by the name @khoshkmubarok on Instagram has recently gone viral for reviewing different brands of soap by tasting them!
She has reviewed soaps like Lifebuoy, Lux, and Giv, and claims that they are “Enak banget” or “very delicious”.
I don’t know where the world is going…
In the past, there have been several debates about whether or not eating soap is dangerous for health.
This type of behaviour is often referred to as Pica Behavior which means eating non-nutritive substances like soap, paint, glue, dirt, and even poop.
Go Ask Alice, a team of health specialists from Columbia University, spoke about the harmful effects of this kind of behaviour after a user admitted to eating soap to make her “feel good”, especially when she is stressed.
The team responded by informing the user that eating items like soap in large amounts can lead up to indigestion, infection, and damage the digestive tract.
So if you’re bored inside the shower, don’t give time to the idea of becoming a soap-eater. As for this lady soap-taster, let’s just pray for her life!
