"Fasting Works Miracles"


By Metropolitan Hierotheos of Nafpaktos and Agiou Vlasiou

"Fasting Works Miracles." With this title, the newspaper To Vima (2/12/2010) presented a study of the University of Crete conducted on 609 children aged 5 to 15.5 years from Thessaloniki, of which 12.1% "followed a full fast" according to the typikon of the Church.

The scientific leader of the study, Mr. Anthony Kafatos, Professor of Preventive Medicine and Nutrition at the Medical School of the University of Crete, pointed out that "fasting does not affect their (children's) normal development, as previously believed."
