At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

Valeria Lukyanova
Some time ago we wrote of Blondie Bennett, who sought to make herself into the image of Barbie.  We have now come on another Barbie would-be lookalike.  This is Valeria Lukyanova, an Ukrainian model, who believes she will be able to make herself stop eating and drinking, which will make her sufficiently slim.

What then will she eat?  I hear you cry in worried voice.  She belongs to the Breatharians, a New Age group who argue that you can train yourself to subsist upon cosmic micro-food, whatever that is supposed to be.  Miss Lukyanova feels she will be able to live on light and air.

I can assure the reader that this won't work, so don't try it yourself if you have weight concerns.  In a number of cases Breatharianism has led to fatalities.
