All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena
Responses, discussions, commentary, answers, reviews.
In March 23 2017, I borrowed in my local library an audio-book published in 2015 and titled:
The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries from a Secret World (English)
Das geheime Leben der Bäume:Was sie fühlen, wie sie kommunizieren - die Entdeckung einer verborgenen Welt (German original)
I wish most people had the information in it. I am deeply thankful to the author, Peter Wohlleben, and the researchers for their work. This was my tiny review of it at that time.
Some chapters touched me even deeper than others, and the last one brought me to tears. It was an invaluable read for me as a fruitarian and a human being.
My friend saved a tree, which someone had thrown out almost without roots, by planting it in his garden, and sent me another email update with "Poor tree" in the subject.
An admin note to the members of the FruitDate group on Facebook:
Guys, this group exists as a tool for you to find each other, as an extension to Fruitarians.net and fb.me/fruitarians - please message each other privately if you see a friendly face, check their profiles, message them, and possibly develop friendships and intimate relationships.
Posts are now possible again but not necessary. Introducing yourself could be a nice idea, no one outside the group should know.
Please do not use this place for promotion. And remember that hardly anything shared through the internet could be considered truly private.
This is a good book for a fruitarian artist like me: about plants, beauty, and passion. The main topics are apples, tulips, marijuana, potato. Yo can learn - surprisingly - about specifics of opium high or flying penises (bees). Additionally, the author offers some interesting observations about life of plants and his position on GMO as a gardener.
Since September 2016, I watched quite a few videos on a YouTube channel à-bas-le-ciel by Eisel Mazard. I started with his critique on Durianrider and Freelee the Banana Girl, but then switched somehow to his older videos on veganism, and liked many of them. Even though I disagree with many of his views and his style of argumentation, I find it is good to have a channel like this in the vegan online world.

We live in the best of all possible worlds.
Vitamin B3, Niacin, nicotinic acid, helps to convert food into energy and is essential for healthy skin, blood cells, brain, and nervous system. It is one of 8 B vitamins. It is water-soluble, which means it is not stored in the body. It has 2 other forms, niacinamide (nicotinamide) and inositol hexanicotinate, which have different effects.
Niacin occurs naturally in food and can also be made by your body from the amino acid tryptophan, with the help of B6.
It is rare for anyone in the developed world to have a Vitamin B3 deficiency; alcoholism is the main cause of it in the US.
