More Than 20 Toothbrushes Were Surgically Removed From This Man’s Stomach

toothbrush, eating disorder

This video shows a man lying on the operating table while a surgeon removes one toothbrush after another from inside his stomach. There have been more than 20 toothbrushes recovered and it's still unclear how they got inside the man's gut.

The original video was uploaded by Sumesh Sukumaran to YouTube. There's no sufficient info found regarding the footage, although it has garnered over 12,000 views in just 11 hours after it was shared on

One of the viewers suggested that the man might be suffering from pica eating disorder, which is the persistent eating of substances with no nutritional value.

While someone added: "I sit here counting and laughing at this, but seriously he's one of those people who can't stop swallowing things."
