A man in Pakistan for 25 years survived just by eating fresh leaves and wood. He even said in the report that he never got sick.
Mehmood Butt, 50, from Punjab Province started to eat leaves at the age of 25 because he could not afford to buy a basic meal.
“There was too much poverty in my family,” he said during an interview. Everything was beyond limit and it was very difficult for me to get a meal.”
However, he said he preferred to eat wood rather than to beg for money in the streets.
Years after he finally got a proper job to get him a basic meal, he still maintains his peculiar eating habit.
He shared that he got a job transporting things from one place to another on his donkey cart. With this, he gets Rs 600 a day.
He said never fell ill despite his tedious job. He assumed it is due to his “natural” diet. Wood from Banyan, Tali and Suck Chain trees are his favorites.
Meanwhile, his neighbors were also surprised how strong he still is despite his old age. They said he never went to the hospital for any ailment.
They said he will stop his cart on the roadside and eat fresh tree branches.
