Long Yunsheng, a man from China, has a penchant for iron nails. Apart from Long doesn't collect the iron nails, he eats them. Yes, you heard correctly. Long easily swallows several nails with a length of three to five centimetres. Washing them down with a cup of water, Long, a worker for a mine company, stuns everyone around him as he eats the nails with ease. Long said he developed the unbelievable habit of swallowing nails after he learned it from others about 32 years ago. Despite being able to add glass, ceramics and tiles to his weekly food shop list, Long is said to be in good health. Report by Claire Lomas.
