Episode 53: Breatharians.

Episode 53: Breatharians.

Ever wondered what it would be like to live without food or water? No, me either. But, this week we look at a bunch of people who say you can do just that. The Breatharians.
These skinny dinner dodgers say that your body can be nourished by a magical, mystical thing called Prana and you don't need anything else. Could this be true? Why do the followers of one Breatharian keep dying? Listen to find out.

As if the restaurant industry hasn't suffered enough, there are a group of people telling us it's healthy to not eat anything at all.

Despite followers dying and the fact that they are, obviously, full of sh*t, people are still handing them money for a diet that includes no food, no recipes, not even any pills.

Meet this bunch of assholes who call themselves  The Breatharians.
