Melbourne, June 6 :Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has admitted that he sticks anything edible into his mouth.
This is also the reason, Rudd says that he brings trouble on his health because he doesn't pay heed to what he's eating.
Rudd was struck down with an "unpleasant" stomach bug last month after eating a dodgy party pie handed to him at a football match.
It sparked rumours he had had a heart attack, and attempts to deny the reports were confused by varying accounts from ALP sources that he had eaten a dodgy dagwood dog, a heinous hot dog and a putrid party pie.
Rudd said that when someone hands him an edible object, he just "sticks it in my mouth".
"It was a graphic and unpleasant morning that morning," the Daily Telegraph quoted him, as telling the Nine Network.
"I don't pay a whole lot of attention to what I eat. When someone hands me something I stick it in my mouth, so there's a problem with that," he added.
Rudd earlier ran into consumption-related controversy when he was taped sampling earwax in Parliament.
