Prahlad Jani lives in India and is in his mid-80s. He claims to have lived without eating food or drinking water since 1940.

Breatharianism is a concept where believers think that the energy of the sun is all they need, that food and water are not necessary. Prahlad Jani meditates and takes time in the sun. He says he does not need to eat or drink and has not since the age of 11 when he had a religious experience.

While testing has been done and he has been observed going long periods without food or water, and without going to the bathroom, some researchers are skeptical of his claim that his body has been sustained only by sunlight for over 70 years.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. — From Hamlet, a play attributed to William Shakespeare
