Unbelievable: This Old Woman Claims She Has Not Eaten Any Solid Food for the Past 60 Years (Photos)

Saraswati Bai, a 75-year-old woman from India, claims that she hasn’t consumed a grain of rice, or any other solid food, for that matter, in the last 60 years. Apart from one banana a week – eaten only occasionally – she survives on water and tea alone.

Saraswati remembers that she used to have a normal diet until she got a Typhoid infection, right after her first son was born, 60 years ago. She couldn’t keep anything down and suffered severe stomach aches, so she gave up eating completely.

As her condition improved, she started taking small sips of tea, but her appetite never returned. Concerned about both her well-being and that of their son, her husband Dwarka Prasad Patikar, tried convincing her to start eating, but she just couldn’t do it. She felt fine living on water and tea alone, and continues to do so today.
For a while, the woman’s husband kept trying to get her to eat solid food, and even took her to several treatment centers, but nothing worked, and seeing that she seemed to be in good health, he eventually gave up.

Saraswati went on to raise a total of five children, and also worked in the fields alongside her husband. Despite her unusual diet, Saraswati says that she has always had plenty of energy, and even today, at the age of 75, she still spends up to five hours a day tending to her family’s land.

Unsurprisingly, after reading Saraswati’s story in the papers, a lot of people found it hard to believe that she could survive on just water and tea for over 60 years, but both her family and her neighbors in the village of Sundrail, India’s Madhya Pradesh state, back up her claims.

Mahendra Patidar, one of the woman’s sons, told Wahgazab that they have all gotten used to her eating habits, but remember their father’s attempts to get her to eat solid food.

Ramesh Chandra, one of Saraswati’s neighbors, added that everyone was surprised and concerned when they first learned about her diet, but after seeing her in such good shape for her age, their feelings turned to admiration.

Saraswati Bai occasionally craves bananas, but never eats more than one per week.

If you think surviving on water and tea is impressive, you’ve probably never heard of Narasamma, a 92-year-old woman who claimed she hadn’t drunk a sip of water since she was 14, or Prahlad Jani, the guru who proved he could survive on air alone.

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
