12-year-old, Landon Jones, a once healthy young boy from Iowa, is now withering away because he doesn’t have the urge to eat or drink. His parents Michael and Debbie have told reporters that he has lost a total of 40% of his body weight over the past year. He was once a healthy young boy at 104 pounds, but started to lose about 2 pounds a week, resulting in his weight now of 48.6 pounds.
Michael states that it happened instantaneously. The night before, Landon had eaten a few slices of pizza and a a bowl of ice cream. His healthy literally changed over night, and in the morning his compulsion to eat and drink was completely gone.
Every day, at every meal, Landon’s parents are forced to remind him to take bites of his food and sips of his drink otherwise he would starve.
