Doctors successfully removed 16 toothbrushes and a three-inch iron nail from a boy’s stomach after he started eating them to cure his addiction to earth.

Harish Devi, 14, ate the dental kit after a holistic doctor told him it would cure his soil-eating habit.

His family also believed that Harish, from Uttar Pradesh, India, was possessed by a ghost and that consuming toothbrushes and nails would help heal him.

But after eating the things, Harish began to feel pain in his abdomen.

He was taken to Baba Raghav Das Medical College, where the crazy discovery was made.

Doctors operated on the 14-year-old and took the toothbrushes and a three-centimeter nail from inside.

Jivunben Rabari and her husband Maldhari, 75, have been trying to have a baby for several years – but this month they finally welcomed their young son through IVF.

The couple from a village called Mora in Gujarat, India, have been married for 45 years. Jivunben said she didn’t have ID to prove her age, but she insisted to local reporters that she was 70 years old.

Dr. Naresh Bhanushali, who was helping the couple with IVF, said, “When they first came to us, we told them they couldn’t have a baby at such an old age, but they insisted.
