How can people be so gullible?
The Facts of the Matter
The investigation conducted by Snopes revealed that they didn’t contact the couple profiled in the articles because they didn’t have to. The site investigated the entire practice of “Breatharianism” (or “Inedia”), which has claimed the lives of people who believed that they could live without food and water.
Their findings read, “Although claims of ‘breatharians’ surviving and thriving pop up every few years, we were unable to find any evidence contradicting the body of science demonstrating humans require water and food to stay alive. It’s possible the couple profiled by The Sun in June 2017 both genuinely made and believed their own claims, but we found no proof the impossible assertion was actually true. When tested, purported breatharians such as Jasmuheen failed to last more than a few days without food and water.”
Don’t be duped
The simple fact of the matter is that humans need to eat and drink to survive; they do not derive sufficient sustenance from the air, sunlight, or a “life-force” in the universe.
