Strange addiction, a man likes to eat live scorpions
Liuqun Li, 58, from China’s Hunan province said his strange habit started when the venomous animal stung him.
“I felt so angry, and then I picked it up and bit its head. It taste (scorpion) was very sweet and tasty, like hotcakes,” said Li, as reported by themorningstarr.co.uk (28/9).
Interestingly, the Li’s body had become increasingly immune to scorpion venom.
“I still get stung but it gives no effect on me,” he said.
Doctors in China believe that Li may actually be addicted to the chemicals in the venom of scorpions. The sting of the scorpion is often used in medical drugs to treat autoimmune disorders, such as multiple sclerosis.
