“The Strange World of Breatharianism” documentary

“Breatharianism is a type of belief system started by Jasmuheen… that hypothesizes and claims to prove that humans can live without consuming solid foods…. She even received the Ig Nobel prize, a satirical parody of the true Nobel Prize, which means she joined the likes of L Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology and the new age guru Deepak Chopra.”

—So says the “Top Documentary Films” web site, describing the film “The Strange World of Breatharianism“.

The 2000 Ig Nobel Literature Prize was awarded to Jasmuheen (formerly known as Ellen Greve) of Australia, first lady of Breatharianism, for her book “Living on Light,” which explains that although some people do eat food, they don’t ever really need to.

And a question that’s recently come to awareness: Are Breatharians, who say they subsist entirely on air, rather than food, especially prey to Covid-19, which is primarily airborne?
