They secured a hotel room overlooking a beautiful part of Brisbane, with a team
of security guards watching her 24/7, to ensure she didn’t eat or drink anything.
Her progress was also checked onsite by a doctor.

By day two, there were already problems: she was dehydrated. By day three,
Jasmuheen was complaining that city pollution was limiting the nutrients she
could obtain from the air. After she complained of the bad air quality, they
moved her to another location (Clear Mountain, 20 kilometers outside of
Brisbane), surrounded by trees and nature.

However, even in this pristine environment, Jasmuheen started to look gaunt. By
day four, she had lost 6 kilos (13 lbs.) Her blood pressure was down, and her
pulse rate was over twice as fast as when she started. Her eyes were sunken, and
her dehydration had passed the 10% level. She also started to talk crazy, like a
little insecure child instead of a grown adult. The doctor monitoring her warned
her she could suffer from severe kidney failure and that it would be too
dangerous to continue, so the experiment was stopped.

At the end, Jasmuheen continued to defend her case that the “pollution” from the
first hotel room in Brisbane had prevented her from getting enough nutrients
from the air.[3] However, in another interview, she claims that breathing
polluted air in big cities has no effect on “her being nourished by prana,” and
that she spends 50% of her time in cities.[4]

From meeting Jasmuheen in person, I believe she is a deluded person, rather
than just a liar looking to make a quick buck. Her willingness to appear on
television and put her claims to the test showed that she did believe she could
live on air. Like all breatharians, she does not take into account that her sparse
diet of tea with honey and chocolate cookies is actually what is keeping her
alive, and not prana.

According to the press, at least three people have died from following
Jasmuheen’s advice.[5] I believe that the total death count attributable to
breatharianism in general is much higher. I personally know at least one person
who died after following this type of advice (a case that was never reported in
the media).

Jasmuheen has also claimed that her DNA has changed shape from 2 strands to
12 “in order to absorb more hydrogen.” A group of skeptics offered her $30,000
to prove it via a simple blood test, but she declined the offer, saying “I don’t
know the relevance for it.” Later, another skeptical group, The James Randi
Foundation, offered her one million dollars to prove her claim.[6] Wouldn’t it be
