Woman starved to death on 'light' diet

A Swiss woman starved to death after believing she could survive on light alone.

The woman embarked on the diet after watching the controversial 2010 documentary film "In the beginning there was light," newspaper Tages Anzeiger reported Wednesday.

The movie centers on Swiss chemistry doctor Michael Werner, 62, and 83-year-old Indian yogi Prahlad Jani, who both claimed to derive sustenance from spiritual means rather than the intake of food -- a concept also known as breatharianism.

Will ya all leave me alone. I am gorging myself on air. Going to ingest some sun later for dessert.

Darwinism at it's finest.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

Then may I suggest L.A. or Tokyo. Now there's some meaty air you can chomp on.
