Chinese Man Drinks Gasoline Regularly

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

71-year-old stonecutter / bamboo weaver Chen Dejun drinks gasoline. And he isn’t dead. Apparently, he drinks it because it helps his chest pains from emphysema. Doctors theorize that he must have developed an immunity to gasoline.

71-year-old stonecutter and bamboo weaver Chen Dejun has been guzzling the stuff for half his life to quell his chest pains. But he hasn’t died.

Can we just break that down for a second? Dejun says he drinks about 3 to 3.5 liters of kerosene and/or gasoline a month. Over 42 years, that means he’s sucked down around 1.5 tons of fuel in his lifetime. That’s about 535.5 gallons, enough to fill up a Corvette almost 30 times, according to calculations by┬áJalopnik’s editor Ray Wert.
