10 Outlandish Food Facts

Mountain Dew Can Melt a Rat 1 of 11

A lawsuit against Pepsi Co filed by a man who claims to have found a dead rat in a can of Mountain Dew brought a very interesting and disturbing fact to light. A veterinarian noted in an affidavit that any rodent trapped in a can of the beverage would disintegrate into a "jelly-like" substance after four to seven days of soaking in it. The calcium would have been sucked from its bones by the ingredients in the soda, causing the rest of its body to rupture. Disgusting.

Makes you seriously wonder what the stuff is doing to your body.
