All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena
Responses, discussions, commentary, answers, reviews.
In March 23 2017, I borrowed in my local library an audio-book published in 2015 and titled:
The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries from a Secret World (English)
Das geheime Leben der Bäume:Was sie fühlen, wie sie kommunizieren - die Entdeckung einer verborgenen Welt (German original)
I wish most people had the information in it. I am deeply thankful to the author, Peter Wohlleben, and the researchers for their work. This was my tiny review of it at that time.
Some chapters touched me even deeper than others, and the last one brought me to tears. It was an invaluable read for me as a fruitarian and a human being.
My friend saved a tree, which someone had thrown out almost without roots, by planting it in his garden, and sent me another email update with "Poor tree" in the subject.
An admin note to the members of the FruitDate group on Facebook:
Guys, this group exists as a tool for you to find each other, as an extension to Fruitarians.net and fb.me/fruitarians - please message each other privately if you see a friendly face, check their profiles, message them, and possibly develop friendships and intimate relationships.
Posts are now possible again but not necessary. Introducing yourself could be a nice idea, no one outside the group should know.
Please do not use this place for promotion. And remember that hardly anything shared through the internet could be considered truly private.
This is a good book for a fruitarian artist like me: about plants, beauty, and passion. The main topics are apples, tulips, marijuana, potato. Yo can learn - surprisingly - about specifics of opium high or flying penises (bees). Additionally, the author offers some interesting observations about life of plants and his position on GMO as a gardener.
Since September 2016, I watched quite a few videos on a YouTube channel à-bas-le-ciel by Eisel Mazard. I started with his critique on Durianrider and Freelee the Banana Girl, but then switched somehow to his older videos on veganism, and liked many of them. Even though I disagree with many of his views and his style of argumentation, I find it is good to have a channel like this in the vegan online world.

I have something that I call my Golden Rule. It goes something like this: 'Do unto others twenty-five percent better than you expect them to do unto you.' … The twenty-five percent is for error.
Vitamins are a group of substances that are needed for normal cell function, growth, and development. There are 13 essential vitamins:
- Vitamin A (retinol, retinal, 4 carotenoids)
- Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)
- Vitamin D (D3 - Cholecalciferol, D2 - Ergocalciferol)
- Vitamin E (tocopherols, tocotrienols)
- Vitamin K (phylloquinone, menaquinones)
- Vitamin B1 (thiamine)
- Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
- Vitamin B3 (niacin)
- Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)
- Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine)

Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the body's fatty tissue: vitamins A, D, E, K.
Water-soluble vitamins - the body must use almost all water-soluble vitamins right away - vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and C.
Vitamin B12 is the only water-soluble vitamin that can be stored in the liver for many years.
