I USED to!!! For years I've eaten corn starch; I saw my aunt do it when I was like 10 or 11. I started eating it here and there. But then it became an addiction all the way up to 24. I would buy a box every week. I've read that this is called PICA- a craving to eat clay, cigarrette butts, chalk, paint on the wall, laundry starch, corn starch, etc. Pica is also associated with Anemia, which I have. Talk to your doctor about....trust me....it'll get worse.
