De 70 de ani n-a băut şi n-a mâncat. Aşa susţine Prahlad Jani, un indian de 82 de ani. Şi continuă. În prezent se află într-un spital din Ahmedabad, este ţinut sub supraveghere de 6 zile, timp în care nu a mâncat şi nu a băut nimic.
Mr Jani, who claims to have left home aged seven and lived as a wandering sadhu or holy man in Rajasthan, is regarded as a ‘breatharian’ who can live on a ‘spiritual life-force’ alone. He believes he is sustained by a goddess who pours an ‘elixir’ through a hole in his palate.
„If his claims are verified, it will be a breakthrough in medical science,” said Dr G Ilavazhagan, director of the Defence Institute of Physiology & Allied Sciences.
So far, Mr Prahlad appears to be standing up to scrutiny. He has not eaten or drunk any fluids in six days, and similarly has not passed urine or a stool in that time. He remains fit and healthy and shows no sign of lethargy. Doctors will continue observing him for 15 days in which time they would expect to see some muscle wastage, serious dehydration, weight loss,and fatigue followed by organ failure. (Sursa – Telegraph)
