Man Claims He Doesn't Need Food, Can Survive On This Instead

A man claims that he's managed to replace food with something rather unexpected. He says that he's found a way to survive off of electrical currents. He doesn't eat anymore; he just charges himself up by holding wires. They don't shock him, he claims. The energy just flows through him. He's taken on the nickname, 'The Human Lightbulb'.

Naresh Kumar from Muzzafarnagar, in Uttar Pradesh, northern India has an unusual talent. He can touch live wires, and not get shocked by them. In fact, he claims he is nourished by them. He plugs himself in to charge up for about 30 minutes per day now instead of eating.

The 42-year-old electricity whisperer says that he discovered he wasn't shocked by electricity after accidentally touching a live wire at work. He was so fascinated that it didn't affect him that he kept experimenting to see how much resistance he had to shocking.

After a while, he started letting electrical currents flow through his mouth - and a wire leading out of the other side will even light up a light bulb. It's unknown if this is truly a remarkable biological anomaly, or if it's a hoax, but he has very much impressed the local villagers.

"I can touch any electrical appliance like a television, washing machine, fridge, and an inverter with my bare hands and it doesn't affect me," Kumar said to the Cover Asia Press.

Kumar got to the point at which he realized that energy will fuel him better than food. Instead of eating now, he plugs and has his fill. "Whenever I feel hungry and there's no food in the house I hold naked wires and within half an hour I'm satisfied. I eat electricity like it's food," he explained.

There is no scientific explanation for how this could possibly work inside of a human body, but there are people who can withstand higher jolts than others. There have been 'human light bulbs' before, and there are other human light bulbs in the world. One boy in India claims to be able to stand up to 11,000 volts, enough to light up a small village. The boy can even sit with his hand in a bucket of water when a live wire is placed in it without getting electrocuted.

Some scientists believe that the anomaly is due to a lack of sweat glands, but there have not been a lot of reputable studies on the phenomenon. It’s just as likely that most people who claim to have this power have figured out some trick, or these people are simply able to withstand electricity currents more than other people.

There are a lot of factors that determine how much of a jolt a human can take. Some people can survive a high jolt of electricity, as long as the pathway it takes doesn't exit through the heart. However, how long the current is running and the voltage can also play a role in the damage level, if any.
