Breatharian Diet
#1
The Breatharians have been in the news lately. They basically alledge that they don't eat or drink but subsist on cosmic energies and their good looks. This seems like the ultimate power of the mind woo where no physical biological properties are acknowledged.

This article is interesting in that the author tries to posit some explanations why someone would really convince themselves they hadn't eaten for months. There a reason doctors ask people to keep food diaries, as people sometimes have zero recollection that they have eaten things. The non-amusing aspect: Once again, some people have actually starved to death because they believed these stories. Medical woo kills people.
