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 ResearchGate.net but nobody seemed to be involved into anything close to fruitarian diet or ethics. I left this note on my profile (researchgate.net/profile/Lena_Nechet):

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 disappearance of a sense of responsibility is the most far-reaching consequence of submission to authority.

All Known Essential Vitamins

Vitamins are a group of substances that are needed for normal cell function, growth, and development. There are 13 essential vitamins:

  • Vitamin A (retinol, retinal, 4 carotenoids)
  • Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)
  • Vitamin D (D3 - Cholecalciferol, D2 - Ergocalciferol)
  • Vitamin E (tocopherols, tocotrienols)
  • Vitamin K (phylloquinone, menaquinones)
  • Vitamin B1 (thiamine)
  • Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
  • Vitamin B3 (niacin)
  • Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)
  • Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine)
  • Vitamin B7 (biotin)
  • Vitamin B9 (folic acid)
  • Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin)

Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the body's fatty tissue: vitamins A, D, E, K

Water-soluble vitamins - the body must use almost all water-soluble vitamins right away - vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and C.
Vitamin B12 is the only water-soluble vitamin that can be stored in the liver for many years.
