South African Pastor pastor makes congregation drink petrol in alarming video.
Lesego Daniel of Rabboni Center Ministries, that has become well-known not just in South Africa but around the world for making his congregation eat grass, has re-surfaced again, this time, the pastor is making his church members drink petrol after he turned it into pineapple juice. During a Sunday service,Daniel allegedly prayed for a bottle containing petrol to be turned to pineapple juice.
In the video below which starts with a note of caution warning people not to try this at home unless they can turn water into wine, members of Pastor Lesego’s congregation are seen drinking what the pastor claims is gasoline claiming it tastes sweet, like pineapple juice and Iron Brew. They are seen calling out desperately to have a drink as the pastor continues to preach and encourage them. There are some nasty side affects of consuming petrol.
Vomiting and diarrhea are the worst next to the horrible taste in your mouth. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC), Petrol is toxic if ingested in moderate quantities. Ingestion of even small amounts (5 to 10 ml) of it may cause a burning sensation in the mouth, throat, and chest, and intense irritation and burning in the gastrointestinal tract with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Ingestion of 27 – 40 nil of petrol will result in more serious symptoms including central nervous system depression, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, fever, and transient liver damage.
Severe intoxication may cause unconsciousness and comma or convulsions with seizures. Fatal dose estimate for the average adult range from 115-180 ml to 470 ml, but death has been reported at a dose as low as 13 ml. The fatal dose for children is 13 to 20 nil. It is even more hazardous if aspirated into the lungs following regurgitation or belching. Once in the lungs, even small amounts may cause severe chemical pneumonitis, and death from lung insufficiency. Gasoline vapor is considered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to be a human carcinogen (with 68 incidences in 1986), and is suspected of causing various other chronic effects. In addition, gasoline vapor contains benzene, a group of human carcinogens which was estimated to cause 155 cancer incidences in 1986. Gasoline’s threshold limit value (TLV) of 300 ppm and short-term exposure limit (STEL) of 500 ppm were set by EPA at least in part to protect against the cumulative toxic effects of benzene. ” Petrol consumption leads to dizziness, extreme fatigue, convulsions, general body weakness and unconsciousness, which members of the congregation appear to display in the video.
