Michel Lotito: Man Who Ate Airplane & Everything Else
Michel Lotito, better known as “Monsieur Mangetout,” which appropriately translates to “Mr. Eats All,” has certainly lived up to his nickname. The Frenchman has eaten everything from bicycles (including the spokes) to an entire Cessna 150 airplane. Between 1959 and 1997, he ate an estimated nine tons of metal. That’s right, nine tons.
Michel Lotito from France can eat anything, including glass, metal, and even poisonous materials. He had even consumed an entire Cessna 150 airplane. Oddly enough, he has trouble eating and digesting bananas and hard-boiled eggs.
Lotito suffered from Pica, which is a medical condition that causes cravings to eat such things as dirt, glass and, apparently, anything metal. The disorder, as you might guess, can lead to a blocked intestine and other surgical emergencies in normal people. Lead poisoning is also a risk.
LOTITO’S IMPOSSIBLE BIOLOGY
Michel Lotito is a French-based ‘entertainer’ who has the amazing ability to eat everything, and by everything, we literally mean everything. He can eat anything ranging from bicycles to an entire Cessna 150 airplane. This superhuman feat has achieved him the name “Monsieur Mangetout” which means “Mr. Eats All”. Between 1959 and 1997, he ate an estimated nine tons of metal. Michel suffers from a medical condition called Pica due to which he has a craving to eat dirt, glass, and anything metal.
Michel Lotito can eat metal without any harm to his digestive system owing to a very thick lining in his stomach and intestine. While eating an object, he usually breaks it into pieces and swallows them by drinking water and mineral oil. He consumes 1 kg of metal per day. That’s why it took him two years to eat the entire Cessna 150 airplane
