Iraqi farmer addicted to eating live scorpions every day

New York, May 30 (ANI): An Iraqi farmer has claimed that he eats at least one live scorpion every day and is addicted to them.

Samarra based Ismail Jasim Mohammed told NBCNews.com that after he became tired of getting stung by the dangerous creatures, he decided to turn the tables and do the biting, the New York Daily News reported.

The 34-year-old also claimed to have developed immunity to their venom because he has been eating them for 15 years now.

Mohammed says that he gets withdrawal symptoms if he goes three days without consuming one. (ANI)
