I’ve written about breatharians before, but couldn’t resist!

What I find most interesting is not all their claims about life force, or feeding the poor (by not feeding them) – It’s that they fail to notice that their average duration is about the same as starvation. A Breatharian can “survive on light” as long as a hunger strike, or a man on a deserted island.

No of course Rob’s approach here is antagonistic, and would get the usual anti-science “doctors are closed-minded” response from Mike’s life coach character. The simple explanation is that while some have claimed to go for years like this, the magic of video cameras reduces their abilities to within reasonable limits of fasting. I’m not saying they’re all liars. But maybe in an attempt at more followers or sales they embellished, or they simply misremembered those few weeks spent in a vitamin deficient stupor.
