Book The Hidden Life of Trees

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.

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.

Phytonutrients

Plant foods contain thousands of natural chemicals, which are called phytonutrients or phytochemicals ("phyto" means "plant"). These chemicals help protect plants from germs, fungi, bugs, and other threats. Phytonutrients are not essential, but they may help prevent disease.

More than 25,000 phytochemicals are found in plant foods, and six important phytonutrients are: 

  • Carotenoids
  • Ellagic acid
  • Flavonoids
  • Resveratrol
  • Glucosinolates
  • Phytoestrogens
