All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

The differences in quantification of obligatory losses of iron made by various expert groups is possibly explained by differences in environmental sanitation and the prevalence of diarrhoea. The presence of dietary components that affect bioavailability differs between and within a given ecological setting. 

The concern about iron excess may be greater in places where anaemia is no longer an issue (e.g. in northern Europe), but in other areas iron deficiency is significant.

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

Bacteria and Archaea

Archaea and bacteria (eubacteria) are single-celled organisms that do not have a nucleus or organelles. Archaea have a distinct evolutionary history and biochemistry compared with bacteria.

Archaea - a domain of single-celled microorganisms. These microbes are prokaryotes. Archaea can survive in extreme and harsh environments like hot springs, salt lakes, marshlands, oceans, gut of ruminants and humans.

Bacteria - a large domain of prokaryotic microorganisms. Typically a few micrometres in length, bacteria have a number of shapes, ranging from spheres to rods and spirals. Eubacteria are ubiquitous and are found in soil, hot springs, radioactive waste water, Earth's crust, organic matter, bodies of plants and animals, etc. Apple
