YES! You know, if you are "craving" this particular product; you probably could be suffering with a mineral deficinency. I knew a girl who was smart and all together yet she was embarrassed because she was secretly "eating" drywall in her home. After finally admitting this; a Doctor gave her an easy diagnosis. She was suffering from PICA. ( mineral deficinency) It was EASILY resolved, she needed to up the iron and calcium in her diet. She is cured. So ,I would RUN not walk to your Doctor and find out what"s going on. It can be fixed. Thanks

Additional Information: I read in a recent Medical Journal that a link has been found between strong craving for laundry starch, cornstarch, even the strong urge to chew ice, can be associated to an iron and zinc deficiency. You need to schedule an appt. with your Dr. ASAP. Tell your Dr. what you are eating and why. It may be embarassing, but this can be serious, you could be anemic. If you are ,do not let your Dr. just treat the anemia, make sure they do tests to find the root cause. Colon cancer has been related to all of these symptoms. That doesn't mean that everyone with unusual substance cravings is caused by cancer, it just means that everyone needs to make sure their Dr. explores all their complaints, and symptoms fully.

Does eating laundry starch cause you to gain weight?

Hi, I dont think eating laundry starch will cause you to gain weight, unless it's gaining weight in the bloated sense. Because you're consumming laudry starch, its most likely not a good idea because of the chemicals in the starch and of the reaction these chemicals can cause to your abdomonen and gullet. I would sincerly stop eating starch. Have you seen your doctor, therapist of a psychiatrist about this? If not, then please see your doctor who can help you to stop eating laundry starch. Take care. **This may or may not cause you to gain weight, but it is a sign of a serious iron or zinc deficiency, which can be caused by anemia. Your Dr. needs to treat you for that and you will stop having the craving to eat the laundry starch. But, don't let your Dr. stop there, they need find the cause of the anemia. A link has been found between the craving for things such as the laundry starch, the deficiency in iron/zinc, and anemia, and cancer of the colon and some other cancers. Please set up an appt. with your Dr. and then you won't need to worry about the weight issue, you won't need the laundry starch, you will be getting the correct minerals in your diet.**
