Irish Hunger Strike
Monday, March 26, 2018
In 1981, the Irish Republican Army prisoners went on a hunger strike. One died after 44 days, 6 died around the 60-day mark. One died at 66-day and two were dead at 71 and 73 days for a total of 10 deaths. How long you can survive depending on how much fat your body has. I'm no expert in fasting, but if you're going to do a long-term fast, I'd limit it to 21 days (half of Christ's fasting) and certainly no more than 30 days at a time (half of the Irish Hunger Strike where most people died around 60 days) Anyway, that's just my opinion.
