Iraqi Farmer Claims He Eats Live Scorpions Every Day, Addicted to Them


If you can’t beat them, eat ’em!

A 34-year-old Iraqi farmer claims he consumes at least one live scorpion every day.

Ismail Jasim Mohammed, who lives in Samarra, said he became tired of getting stung by the dangerous creatures. He decided to turn the tables and do the biting.

And after eating scorpions for 15 years, Mohammed tells that he is now addicted. He says he gets withdrawal symptoms if he goes three days without consuming one.

Mohammed says he has been stung so many times in the mouth that he has developed an immunity to the scorpions’ venom.
