All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Fruit plants never get paid for producing our food, unless we spread their seed in their habitat. Latest edition: Fruit plants never get paid for producing our food – the flesh of the fruits, unless we spread seeds of the fruits we have eaten into their species' habitat.

Welcome, Toni!
I guess, plants do not consciously participate in our economies :) I think we should pay them back for the fruit with care and protection.

Well, Lena, the necessary and sufficient care and protection for the plants, from us – the fruit eaters, is to give the chance for their seeds, which have been taken away within the fruits we eat, to reproduce their respective species, wherever, whenever and however those/they may grow on their own.

Well, that's one way to look at it.
I see plants as individual beens, not like a mechanical element of their species. As with animals, I will treat individuals with respect and try to do my reasonable best to help them flourish. I do not see it as my responsibility or ability, however, to ensure their plentiful procreation. I have an article about it on this site.

I don't feel like having implied a “mechanical element” concept. I guess you mention it to your liking, Lena.

Fruit plants produce our food naturally without our intervention. They don't ask for help. What they do but, without asking us, is putting their seeds in the fruits. This apparently shows what they rely upon for procreation; which is what we naturally can help them with, easily.

I say “give the chance ... to reproduce ... on their own”, not “ensure ... plentiful ...”, once again, Lena.

Guessing the article is “Seeds in Fruitarian Diet?”.

Recommended Dietary Allowance RDA

Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) - the average daily dietary nutrient intake level sufficient to meet the nutrient requirement of nearly all - ~97% - healthy individuals in a particular life stage and gender group. 

The process for setting the RDA depends on being able to set an Estimated Average Requirement (EAR). If an EAR cannot be set, no RDA will be set. The EAR is the daily intake value of a nutrient that is estimated to meet the nutrient requirement of half the healthy individuals in a life stage and gender group.

The RDA is set at the EAR plus twice the standard deviation (SD) if known (RDA = EAR + 2 SD). If data about variability in requirements are insufficient to calculate a standard deviation, a coefficient of variation for the EAR of 10% is ordinarily assumed (RDA = 1.2 x EAR).

The RDA for a nutrient is a value to be used as a goal for dietary intake by healthy individuals. The RDA is not intended to be used to assess the diets of either individuals or groups or to plan diets for groups.
