Fasting Yogi Astounds Scientists, Becomes Role Model to Anorexics

Yogi Prahlad Jani no food or water 70 years fasting yogi starving Indian yogi

82-year-old yogi Prahlad Jani claims he hasn’t had a sip of water or a morsel of food since he was blessed by a goddess and given special powers as a child. Can this be true? A team of doctors and researchers at India’s Defense Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences held a press conference last week to announce the conclusion of their 15 day investigation on Indian holy man.

Doctors found no evidence that Jani ate or drank anything and they found no adverse effects in his body from hunger or dehydration. They think that yoga exercises may have caused Jani’s body to undergo a biological transformation. The researchers said tests found that his brain is equivalent to that of a 25-year-old. – Epoch Times

“If Jani does not derive energy from food and water, he must be doing that from energy sources around him, sunlight being one,” said, neurologist Sudhir Shah. “As medical practitioners we cannot shut our eyes to possibilities, to a source of energy other than calories.”

Anorexics around the globe are eagerly awaiting further results on DNA, enzyme and gene analysis.  Jani’s claims has given people who starve themselves hope that life without food and water is possible. More importantly there’s no longer a need for Kate Moss (“Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.”) as Jani becomes a healthy role model or anorexics. Now how do you go about getting this blessing?

Pour Some Sugar On Me: What Sweetens Your Pot?

Sugar Substitute Sweet 'n Low Splenda Equal Sun Crystals Stevia Truvia Def Leopard "Pour Some Sugar on Me"

This Mother’s Day, I turned into my grandmother. Instead of stealing Sweet ‘n Low from the Kings Plaza Diner, I shoved packets of Sun Crystals into my yoga bag. As I absconded the green packets of all-natural sweetener from the coffee counter at my yoga studio, I thought about my recently deceased Grandma. If she was still alive would her sticky fingers swipe the stevia and sugar cane mixture and leave the little pink packets of granulated Saccharin, dextrose and cream of tartar behind?  My thoughts returned to sweeteners at dinner (life is good when this is what you think about) when I watched my mother make off with several Splenda packages from the Chinese restaurant. Besides the fact that I clearly come from a family of sugar-substitute thieves, what did our choices say about us? Does selecting an all-natural sweetener over an artificial one reveal anything about your personality? Take the sweetener quiz and find out.
