In case you missed her, Naveena Shine is the Seattle woman who was attempting to “Live On Light.” For those of you who have never heard of such a thing (this is for humans mind you, not plants), “Living On Light” is a form of Breatharianism, a belief that people can live without ever eating or drinking and can exist on cosmic micro-food (sunlight and air). There are allegedly thousands of people on the world “Living On Light,” but no one has yet to prove it. That’s where Shine’s big idea came in. The 65-year-old wanted to prove that “Living on Light” was possible to “save the planet from the utter destruction we are inflicting on it.”
Shine described the experiment on her blog as:
A period of between four and six months within an environment that contains nothing that could be described as food. The subject is free to drink any liquid that could not be seen as food. Water and tea with a splash of milk are acceptable as is coffee with a splash of cream. There will be no juice, no powders and no alcohol … This experiment is not about starving but about activating or transforming to another system that will replace the need to ingest carbon based food.
