THE world's heaviest man is a Brit who has ballooned to 70 STONE, it was revealed yesterday.
Paul Mason, 48, needs a £20,000 life-saving op after a compulsive eating disorder left him "super-obese".
Paul . . . op to control eating
He eats 20,000 calories of food a day - EIGHT TIMES the official adult male average of 2,500.
Paul scoffs three family-sized takeaways a night and wolfs down Sunday roasts like snacks.
He has spent much of the past eight years in bed at his home in Ipswich, Suffolk.
His care costs taxpayers an estimated £100,000 a year.
And now he needs drastic stomach surgery to stop him eating and keep him alive - at a cost of £20,000 to the NHS.
But first health chiefs have to tackle the problem of transporting Paul to a specialist hospital 152 miles from his home.
They even considered using an RAF Chinook HELICOPTER to airlift him
