Turns out eating cheese-and-tomato pizzas for 31 years isn't very good for you—who knew. But a British woman says she can't face anything else on her plate without getting the shakes, ANI reports. “I’m actually scared of fruit and veg," says London resident Claire Simmons. "I get so angry when people think I’m being faddy—this is a real medical condition.”

Doctors say her version of Selective Eating Disorder boosts her chance of having a stroke or heart attack later in life. But Simmons insists she's doing what she can: “I keep myself healthy with exercise and drink a lot of water. But my GP says I’m storing up many problems for the future due to a lack of vitamins and minerals." (Which must mean Congress was wrong in declaring pizza a vegetable.)
