Take a Breathe

Vegetarianism and veganism have become being parts of today’s world with many people attempting some form of diet limitation. There are elimination diets geared towards finding out if you’re allergic to something and other forms of diets for health. Of course Veganism and its branches are very popular. Of course not eating meat is nothing new. Many species around the globe don’t eat meat and even human had primarily eaten a veggie based diet most of our lives. This raises a question, is Veganism and its branches really all that odd?

 

Well it depends on what you’re looking for. In today’s day and age we have so many choices for what can consist of a vegan or meat reduced diet. There are fruitarians, vegetarians, Pescatarian and many more about. Each one with their own subset of rules and restrictions that may or may not impede a person’s day to day life.

 

Even with such variety in eating choices today there’s no real hard and fast rule about the average human diet. For examples, there’re people who eat only fruit and nuts and they’re right as rain, high levels of contentment with a pep in their step and for others they need their broccoli.

 

Though while I was looking into it, I noticed that there was a sub-group of people who believed in something a bit deeper than veganism, something stronger and actually damaging to your health.

 

Breatharians.

 

If you haven’t heard of them that’s because they’re not very popular but they have caused their own fair share of controversy. Coming from Inedia, bretharians believe that people can survive on just the prana of the living world –that is- the world energy despite popular science saying otherwise.

 

Of course it doesn’t matter how or why you chose to change your diet as long as it’s a god fit for you.
