Hallo Eating Vaseline
Except if you eat big volumes, it will probably just go through your system. It may however cause bowel obstruction and negatively affect the absorbtion of your vitamins and nutrients. You may have a nutritional/mineral deficiency causing the craving (by the way, this is called PICA)It can also be a sign of obsessive compulsive disorder. Try taking a good multivitamin and ask your doctor to check your iron levels.
