Medical effects / Immune System - Why not a medical citation made ?[edit]

The piece of text quotes a Telegraph article. This can't be any more acceptable than quoting opinion. Why isn't the research or a paper quoted here? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fasting#Immune_system

There is very little medical reporting positive or negative here. The majority is religious information[edit]

It is promarily a bodily, physical thing, there surely ought go be medical reports, uses, pros and cons, based on real understanding. I find it a little concerning that the religious aspects are so favoured when they are one things we know we can not prove. Whereas medicine has everything we know really works and is not mentioned very much relatively or generally.

Does fasting make people more resistant to food shortages?[edit]

Does it make them more resistant to or more capable for dealing with food shortages both at the individual and the societal level?

Fasting and osteoporosis[edit]

I am surprised this article says that fasting can help to prevent osteoporosis - it may make people very thin, which can increase the risk of osteoporosis. Vorbee (talk) 15:18, 27 December 2017 (UTC)
