German cancer researcher Dr. Michael Werner claims to have eaten nothing but small amounts of fruit juice mixed with water for four years. He says that, like a plant, he gets his nutrients from sunlight. In the past, some gurus in India have claimed to receive nourishment from their breathing alone. Dr. Helmut Oberritter says, "It is not possible to live on what one gets from fruit juice alone. There are lots of vital proteins and fats that are missing. Obviously this case needs a lot more investigating if we are to explain it."
Worldtribune.com reports that Werner has written a book about his experiences, and says he actually gained weight when he started his diet.
