A woman who believed breatharianism lies starved to death as she attempted to live on a sunlight only diet. In Hong Kong ,breatharians [mostly women] believe they can lose weight fast and get lots of other health benefits if they "fed on the sun." This sun-eating for them involves staring at the sun for a number of minutes in the evenings. Starving yourself to lose weight certainly does work but believing anything else will most certainly lead you straight to the grave. http://www.nutriviral.com/woman-starved-to-death-trying-to-live-on-sunlight-alone/ At least three other deaths have been attributed to the pseudoscientific practice of breatharianism since prominent advocate Ellen Greve (AKA Jasmuheen) began touting “pranic nourishment” in the 1990s.
