Is it possible to live without micronutrients?

Recommended Posts

Depends on how long you are talking about, but the longest documented water only fast was just over a year, the guy was fine, but started out morbidly obese, and he DID take a multivitamin during that year without any food, so I don't think we have a good answer on how long a person could live without micronutrients.  But where would you get calories from that contain no micronutrients?

Maybe drinking water with pure sucrose? Various deficiencies would kick into pretty soon I think maybe after a few weeks or months, max.
