Man in China claims to live only on water

22-year-old Ning Xuefa maintains that he has lived his whole life without eating a single scrap of food.

Ning claims that he drinks several liters of water each day but that he never eats any food at all, a fact that his father has backed him up on by confirming that he only ever drinks water. Generally a person is unable to survive without food for more than a few weeks.

"As a student, I would always attend school with a huge bottle of water, but I wouldn't ever touch food," said Ning. When he left school at 14 Ning became a manual laborer but was said to have experienced physical difficulties and fatigue as a result of his minimalistic diet.

"A 22-year-old man in Henan Province has managed to survive solely by drinking 15 kilograms of water a day - without ever eating a bite of food."

I call bullpockies on it as well. I recall reading a similar story of a woman who claimed to live off of nothing but pure water and air; she even went so far as to claim that the evil food industry had us all fooled into believing we need food to live so a group of researcher decided to study her. Not surprisingly after a few days she started getting sick and claimed it was polluted air so they moved her to a new place with clean air and she continued to deteriorate. She then casually admitted to sneaking a mouthful of cake or whatever to satiate some sort of food "orgasm" or whatever blarney ... [More]

Correct. Impossible in terms of known science. It's possible that our understanding could be inaccurate. Some so called "scientific" people are so closed-minded. Correct. It is possible your understanding could be inaccurate.Some "open minded" people are so gullible.

This has been claimed by many people over the years. There are also some who claim not to drink anything but "live off the sun." I think they are sometimes called "breatharians." In every case it has been proven a fraud but it often takes a while as "locals" want to believe it and someone has to come in looking to prove the fraud.

He can "claim" what he wants. Let him prove it though.
