If a human could slow their pulse and other needs of the body, perhaps they too, could do with less food/water.
Amphibians are thus studied for this and other many different reasons.
It's a type of hibernation. Humans don't hibernate. The Indian yoga guru, Paramahansa Yogananda, claimed to be able to change his heart rate, but that was debunked, too. He did it by trickery, and when medical personnel discovered the trick, his show was over.

Humans need food and nutrition. It's a biological fact. The body can adapt to survive on less but no food at all isn't possible.

. India has some weird ideas but they probably know what they are talking about. Maybe better than we do.

Some of us sit in our chairs and think we know it all. However i think there is far more out there than we realise or maybe want to know.

How do the naysayers know they are right ? Because the scientists tell them it is so.
