Indian doctors are studying a remarkable 83-year-old holy man who claims to have spent the last seven decades without food and water.
Prahlad Jani, an 82 year Indian yogi is used to living with empty stomach. He claims that he receives his energy from space.
At first medics thought him to be a swindler, but when they examined him they were of a different opinion. The unique yogi was placed in a hospital for observation. The first results shocked scientists and now they are trying to find out if other people can be taught to live without food and water.
Prahlad Jani says he has been living without food and water for over 70 years. He said that when he was eight he was homeless and lived in a cave near a Hindu temple where he was allegedly visited by an Indian goddess. She felt sorry for the child and bestowed these wonderful capabilities on him. Since then all he needs to survive is a drop or two of magic nectar sent to him by a goddess every day. The nectar penetrates his body through a special channel on the roof of his mouth. Scientists have no comments about it.
The unique yogi has been in complete isolation in the hospital for a week already and he is observed 24/7 with specially installed cameras. He has not been eating or drinking for the entire week. Every day doctors examine him trying to find signs of weakness or dehydration, but to no avail. They found that his brain cells are at the level of a 25-year old person, and his body is strong and young.
The doctors say they are dealing with a biological miracle because within 108 hours in the hospital he has not eaten or drunk and has not used a restroom even once. This raises complex questions . A human being can live without water and food up to 12 days. There were cases when people lived without food for 16 and even 30 days, but they drank water on the 8th day.
Jani is studied by 35 doctors. They say that yoga practice caused biological changes in his body. He explains it with the “life energy” given to him by the Indian goddess. This “energy” is especially interesting for military doctors.
The doctors are hoping this case will help them to research the ways of survival in extreme conditions without food or water. They believe it could be a real breakthrough in their attempts to send piloted spacecrafts to Mars. The unique patient will be examined for two more weeks. It will take the scientists another two months to meticulously study the results. Only then it will be obvious whether this is a coax or sensation.

Prahlad Jani Experimenter Still Won’t Release Study Results in Mysteries, Religion, Science by Jim Cook8 months after the end of an experiment purporting to show that Indian “holy man” Prahlad Jani survives without food or water, experiment chief Sudhir Shah still has not released study documentation to prove his claim. It’s since turned out that Prahlad Jani was “gargling” and pouring water over his head on a regular basis during the experiment. Sudhir Shah is a devotee of breatharianism who declares the object of his research is to convince people that they can live without eating or drinking. Prahlad Jani’s hermit cave? It’s a studio apartment with a refrigerator that his handlers won’t let visitors open.
