  • Laird Shaw

    Laird Shaw, ethical botanical fruitarian

    Laird Shaw from withrespect.net.au has kindly agreed to give me this interview, even though he was considering to limit his online presence - I appreciate it very much. Please, enjoy Laird's in-depth answers to the 55 fruitarian questions.

    I Introduction

    1. Please, introduce yourself.

    I'm a 39 year old vegan-fruitarian guy living in Australia - currently in Sydney, but I own a home in Tasmania. I became lacto-ovo vegetarian around twenty six years ago, vegan around five years ago, and shortly after, vegan-fruitarian (a diet which I describe as "ethical botanical fruitarianism" - more below).

  • Is High Fruit Raw Vegan Diet the Key to Vitality and Health?

    I was asked this question by a very nice person. The first version of the question was (with a few additional details):

    ...do you think high fruit raw vegan diet is optimal for health?...I honestly sense i am not going the right way, as I am not "glowing" on this lifestyle. Would love your perspective.

    The final version of the question was:

    ...is this diet key to vitality and health, aside of course relationships, state of mind and etc.

    In this semi-spontaneous response I did not touch on a few important aspects of the issue because the subject was a bit too broad and complex to give an comprehensive and definitive short answer. I also did not know almost anything about this person experience with this diet. The video is ~ 30 minutes long:

    Part 1: Introduction

    1. Please, introduce yourself.

    My name is Margaret Lozano. I’m the host of the ModVegan YouTube channel youtube.com/c/ModVegan and author of the accompanying blog ModVegan.com. I’m a historian by training, but my real passion is learning, and YouTube has given me a chance to share my ideas with the world! My channel is a bit different from other vegan channels, because I have a very modern, skeptical approach to many issues related to veganism. I try to give people interesting things to think about and then provide a place to explore those ideas without judgement (well, maybe with a little judgement, I’m only human).

  • Rhys - Sora Sennin

    Rhys

    This is the fruitarian interview with a very interesting young person, Rhys - Sora Sennin.

    Part 1: Introduction

    1. Please, introduce yourself.

    I'm Rhys Michael. I'm 20 years old, and i'm a CNA.

    2. How would you describe this stage of your life?

    Hectic and disorganized.

    3. Tell us something about your background.

    I grew up with a lower middle class family in a dump neighborhood. My parents were democrat and religious but they never imposed that on me.

    4. What inspires you in your future?

    Honestly, this very questionnaire. The idea that maybe i'll get to meet people who are willing to view vegetation as an organism deserving of its own future.

  • Why Did I Not Respond?

    Please read this article if you:

    1. try to figure out why I did not answer your question,
    2. would like to understand why I do not discuss fruitarianism privately,
    3. or want to talk with me in private anyway. 

    Before I start, please let me tell you that I am painfully aware that by refusing to discuss fruitarianism in private messages in the recent years and by making it difficult to contact me, I might have lost precious opportunities to get to know wonderful human beings. I hope you will understand me better after this explanation.
