It"s something that"s often said at the table when someone has overeaten, but can it really happen ?According to assistant professor of pediatrics Dr. Rachel Vreeman it can, there have been a few cases over the years of people who have eaten so much that their stomach has literally ruptured. Cases in 2003 and in 1991 detail accounts of individuals sufferingfrom this very thing as a result of overeating.

A handful of reports over the years document the tales of people who literally ate themselves to death, or at least came dangerously close.
