Eating paper
Anon_143446 posted:
What happens to a person if they eat paper? Is it harmless? Can it hurt you?

Hi and welcome to WebMD,

There are no health professionals on this board nor do we have one that could address this.

It may depend on the kind of paper and how much is consumed and how often.

Any concerns really should be discussed with the person's doctor.
You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
