Chinese Man Has Lived on Water Alone for the Last 12 Years

How long can you survive without food? It all depends on a person’s weight,  overall health and metabolic rate, but according to scientific data, a human  being can’t go much longer than 3 weeks without food. Now, a 22-year-old man  from China means to challenge this theory claiming he has survived 12 years on  water alone.

Ning Xuefa, a young man from China’s Henan province, has recently made  headlines for claiming he hasn’t had a bite of food in the last 12 years.  Looking at the 1.50-meter-tall, 40-kg-heavy Ning one can tell he doesn’t like to  eat much, but his story seems almost impossible to believe. He told Chinese  media that he completely renounced food when he was just a 10-year-old child.  Just looking at bread or vegetables at the dinner table made him nauseous,  and he always had a dry throat and a weird sensation like something was stuck  there that made him drink lots of water all day long. He currently consumes up  to 15 liters of water in a day, and his father back up his story that he never  touches a single scrap of food, whether it’s rice, steamed bread or meat.
