Let’s get even more extreme. You don’t have anything edible around? Some could suggest to take cotton balls or tissue paper, dip it into orange juice, lemonade or smoothie and eat it. Does it sound crazy? Yes, it is. “Eating anything that isn’t actually food can cause blockages in your intestines. What’s more, most cotton balls aren’t even made of cotton, they are composed of bleached synthetic fibres,” says nutritionist Alexandra Caspera on Huffington Post. This diet leads to a lack of vitamins and minerals in the body, which in turn means that all of your organs are slowing down functioning, as with long-term on this diet your hair and nails can fall off.
