All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Notes: current

It has been seven years since I tried to find researches or philosophers who might be interested in fruitarianism. Back then I have joined but nobody seemed to be involved into anything close to fruitarian diet or ethics. I left this note on my profile (

Hi, I have joined this site for scientist (not being one myself) to find someone who is interested in researching nutritional aspect of fruitarianism. I hoped someone would be interested in a case study. I gave up, maybe too early. I'll keep this profile for the history, without participation, but you are welcome to contact me directly - thank you!

I am not as eager anymore to offer my time for this purpose, but I will definitely consider serious offers.

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


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. Apple
