In April & May 2010, Indian scientists studied Prahlad Jani – a yogi who claims to have lived for 70 years without food or water. Watch this video clip by NTDTV which features interviews by doctors who have studied Prahlad Jani – a breatharian yogi and medical mystery.

Indian Man Lives Seven Decades Without Food or Water

Update 21 May 2014: Prahlad Jani is featured in the film In the Beginning There Was Light.  Watch the entire film here.

A hermit in India’s Ahmedabad City claims to have survived without food and water for the last 70 years.

The Defense Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences is carrying out a study on Prahlad Jani at a private hospital to understand the phenomenon behind his claim.

He will be kept under observation at the hospital for the next 15 days and will go through a number of tests.

[Dr. G. Ilavazhagan, Defense Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences]:
“This may help in working out strategies for survival without food and water when it is not available, for example, in natural calamities, people face this situation. Similarly, our soldiers may also face this situation when they are left in the deserts or in forest or in high altitude areas.”

A neurophysician says Jani’s survival is miraculous.

[Sudhir Shah, Neurophysician]:
“A person can live without food and water for three, four, seven to 12 days and we have studied during …fasting in the past that people have done fasting for 16 or 30 days, but they were taking water after eight days and certainly they pass urine but this case is a unique phenomena.”

Some tests on his brain revealed that it resembled that of a 25-year-old person.

Jani has also claimed he has a hole in his palate and through his head where a drop or two of nectar passes that helps him survive.

Initial test reports confirmed Jani’s body has undergone a biological transformation due to yoga exercises.

Doctors also said there was no sign of fatigue or any other problem with the hermit, and he still prefers using stairs to the elevator.

Not much is known about Jani’s family since he had left home at the age of seven and wandered in jungles.
