Mister Eat It All
Over the course of forty years, Frenchman Michel Lotito ate an estimated nine tons of metal. How did he do so? In his youth, Lotito suffered from pica, a mental disorder in which people compulsively eat nonfood items such as dirt and plastic. Once he started experimenting with more dangerous items such as nails and glass he learned that the incredibly thick lining of his stomach and intestines allowed him to consume almost anything. Soon, Lotito turned his affliction into a career and went down in history as the man who literally ate everything. He died in 2007 from natural causes unrelated to his eating habits.
