James Randi Speaks: Powered by Sunlight

Randi is referring to this story, where an 82 year old man (sorry, 'breatharian') in India claims he has lived without food or water for 70 years. Here is a video news story on the subject.

As someone wrote at this forum:

The scientific explanation is quite simple. He is a fraud, and he has survived 6 days without food or water. There is nothing unbelievable about this story at all.

An interesting story would be that he was monitored for 6 weeks, or 6 months or 6 years and survived with no food or water. But, that's not going to happen.

Or maybe he just happened to swallow some "bath water" when he took his baths during the "observation", as Randi suggests.

But make up your own mind.
