59-year-old Elsie Campbell experienced an odd craving, she just wanted to eat lettuce. This craving turned into an obsession and she couldn't get enough of it.
Bingeing on Lettuce Gives a Clue About Lurking Breast Cancer
Her craving increased manifold and soon she was consuming four lettuces a day. Observing this abnormal eating pattern, her husband, a research scientist, thought it could be indicative of some deficiency in the body.
To understand what could have triggered this sudden craving, he found that lettuce contains a nutrient which is deficient in victims of breast cancer.
At his insistence, Elsie consulted a specialist and was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since she was diagnosed early, the lump was removed. She is now clear of cancer after few months of treatment.
