The inventor of Vaseline claimed to eat it all the time

Chesebrough lived to be 96 years old and was such a believer in Vaseline that he claimed to have eaten a spoonful of it every day.

Robert Chesebrough was the inventor of Vaseline, and he traveled New York extolling it as a miracle cure for healing wounds — which he would self-inflict in front of audiences.
