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.

Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily.
An enterotype is a classification of living organisms based on its bacteriological ecosystem in the gut microbiome. Humans can be roughly divided into three enterotypes depending on which genus of bacteria dominates their gut: Bacteroides, Ruminococcus, or Prevotella.
- People who eat a lot of meat and saturated fat tended to have more Bacteroides in their flora.
- Ruminococcus prevailed in people who consumed lots of alcohol and polyunsaturated fats.
- Prevotella favored a diet rich in carbohydrates.
Long-term diet is strongly associated with the gut microbiome composition. If switching gut enterotype is possible, it may take a long-term dietary intervention.
Chimpanzees have enterotypes that are compositionally analogous to those found in humans.
