Eating Disorder Makes Girl Crave Metal.

BROKEN BOW, NE -- A young Nebraska girl is battling an extremely rare eating disorder.

Mackenzie Sisson is just like any other eleven year old, only she's addicted to metal.

"She can see a staple laying on the floor in a classroom, in the carpet. She can find metals in the rocks that you can never see," explained Mackenzie's mother Patricia.

Mackenzie started eating unusual things in preschool.

Things got worse in kindergarten.

"She started chewing on the lead part that holds the eraser on a pencil, eating her erasers, breaking up her crayons," Patricia added.

In second grade Mackenzie disassembled a school chair and put the screws in her mouth.

Mackenzie is good at hiding metal objects in her mouth.

She can hide two AA batteries under her tongue and speak normally.

From doctor to doctor, no one could explain Mackenzie's affliction.
