ALBANY, GA (WALB)- "I just ate cotton."
Consuming large amounts of cotton is what some people are doing to lose weight. It's called the cotton ball diet and it's extremely dangerous.
There are hundreds of dietary supplements hitting the shelves everyday that come in pill and liquid form but some people are opting out for cotton. A person takes cotton ball, soaks it in juice then eats it. Dr. Bruce Smith of Southwest Georgia Pediatrics says doing this can cause some serious health problems.
