All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

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.

Isaac Bashevis Singer

What do they know-all these scholars, all these philosophers, all the leaders of the world - about such as you? They have convinced themselves that man, the worst transgressor of all the species, is the crown of creation. All other creatures were created merely to provide him with food, pelts, to be tormented, exterminated. 

Undernutrition

Undernutrition is a form of malnutrition. (Malnutrition also includes overnutrition).

Undernutrition can result from:

  • inadequate ingestion of nutrients,
  • malabsorption,
  • impaired metabolism,
  • loss of nutrients due to diarrhea,
  • increased nutritional requirements.

Undernutrition progresses in stages: it may develop slowly when it is due to anorexia or very rapidly. First, nutrient levels in blood and tissues change, followed by intracellular changes in biochemical functions and structure. Ultimately, symptoms and signs appear. Diagnosis is by history, physical examination, body composition analysis, and sometimes laboratory tests. 

Undernutrition from micronutrient deficiencies, or "hidden hunger", affects over 2 billion people globally and can lead to reduced growth and cognitive development, birth defects, blindness, and overall poor health. Vitamin A deficiencyiron deficiency anaemia and iodine deficiency disorders are among the most common forms of micronutrient malnutrition.
