All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Fruitarian

Fruitarian diet is based on fruits and seeds and excludes animal products.

  • My Fruitarian Story

    This is me.

    Hi, my real name is Lena, I founded this site Fruitarians.net in 2010 as an international fruitarian community. 

    Fruitarianism for me is a quest for optimal ethical ways to live and for all good diets based on fruits and seeds.  

    I am a long term vegan-fruitarian, who radically changed her lifestyle as a teenager, at 18, and maintained and adjusted it during two following decades. I doubted fruitarianism, but my fruitarian position remains surprisingly strong. This a very short version of my fruitarian story.

  • Open Letter

    Hi, thank you for checking out Fruitarians.net! My name is Lena, I am also known as Fruitarian Lena. I am a long-term vegan fruitarian, the founder of the site (the former International Fruitarian Network) - my attempt to provide an independent inviting platform for all people to tell about their ethical lifestyle choices, and to participate in the civil public debate. Currently, I am considering my options in building an interesting resource on fruitarianism. 

    I believe the future of humanity depends on our ability to come to certain agreements

    If you are interested in realistic approaches to fruitarianism and veganism, in ethical and environmental changes we can make, and in attracting people to an open conversation about these topics, beyond cooking, looks and fitness, please help me to to develop Fruitarians.net with new ideas and to join the conversation in public videos.

    My plans for the future of this site are summarized in this public letter to past and future participants and supporters.

Imaginary good is boring; real good is always new, marvelous, intoxicating.

Viruses

A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms. Viruses can infect all types of life forms, from animals and plants to microorganisms, including bacteria and archaea. 

There are millions types of viruses, ~ 5,000 virus species have been described in detail. Viruses are found in almost every ecosystem and are the most abundant type of biological entity. The origins of viruses in the evolutionary history of life are unclear. 

While not inside an infected cell or in the process of infecting a cell, viruses exist in the form of independent particles, virions, which consist of the genetic material made from either DNA or RNA, a protein coat, and in some cases an outer coat of lipids. Virion is about one one-hundredth the size of a bacterium.
