 Medical Experts to Study How Yogi Survives Without Food and Water
The astounding case of Prahlad Jani, a yogi claiming to have survived without food and water for the last 65 years, has puzzled doctors anew. In 2003, Jani underwent some tests to prove that he is indeed surviving without food and water.

Now a team of 30 medical experts are to conduct a series of rigorous medical tests at Sterling Hospital to ascertain if Jani is surviving on the mere strength of a spiritual experience. The study is to last for 15 days during which a series of physical study tests, MRIs, EEG, ECG, aura study, blood studies and neuro-physiological studies will be conducted.

Sristi and government of Gujarat collaborating for this study, which also includes Dr. Sudhir Shah, a neurologist, scientists from Defence Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences (DIPAS) and physician and diabetologist Dr. Urman Dhruv.

"A detailed research which includes a strict protocol of various tests is to be conducted within 15 days to understand if there is a specific biological transformation that has occurred within Jani's system due to prolonged fasting," Dr Shah explained. Experts say that the analysis of Jani's biological transformation can bridge the divide between science, biology and spirituality.
