Dennis Galer Goodwin is an English man recognized by Guinness World Records as going on the world's longest hunger strike, lasting 385 days and ending in 1973.[1] Goodwin consumed only water during his hunger strike, although he was fed orally through a tube[2] by authorities. His hunger strike was in protest of his incarceration in Wakefield Prison in West Yorkshire, England, after being accused of rape.
