Human Barbie advocates Breatharianism – living on light and air alone

Known as the Human Barbie, Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova is now advocating Breatharianism, a new age spiritual practice where one lives on light and air alone, without consuming food and water.

“In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all; I’m hoping it’s the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone,” Lukyanova told the International Business Times.

With a waist as small as 50cm, the Ukrainian model and singer has become Internet-famous for her wild, alien-like appearance and “spiritual teachings.”

Aside from aspiring to live on light and air alone, the Barbie doll look-alike also claims to be able to talk to aliens and time travel. The self described “spiritual teacher” says her out-of-body experiences began when she was a little girl, and that she can travel outside of her body to other planets and universes.

For the last four years, Lukyanova has been teaching seminars on meditation and out-of-body travel.

The website explains the belief in more detail:

“This is a state of man (breatharian, inediate, non-eater) characterized (among other things) by the absence of eating, resulting from (or rather being a stage on the way to) expanding of the Consciousness sphere in which a person lives. In general an ideal (fully realized) inediate, breatharian, non-eater has no need to eat or drink to keep the body working perfectly. A breatharian consumes no food and no drink, he/she needs only air to nourish the body.”

Breatharianism, also known as Inedia, is a lethal pseudoscience, and several adherents of the new age practice have died from starvation. The practice is extremely dangerous, and foolish.

Don’t try this at home kids.
