All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Vlog

Lifestyle vlogs - videos and short films - by Lena, a vegan fruitarian European in California

I shop in Trader Joe's not that often, but in this video I like to share with you my favorite things in it, and the way I make my rather frugal decisions. 

A walk on the beach on a very windy day in search of some solitude. Sorry for so much noise - I tried to cover the microphone on my phone, but it did not help a bit.

Late afternoon till evening: shopping for seeds, getting gasoline, driving and walking home from a German business lesson, eating raw Spanish peanuts and oranges with news in German, my colorful lamp, painting stuff (some fine art talk, belongs to my life).

The last vlog from Missouri or Kansas. Houses, one with a truck in it, another one with an airplane on top.

Random visuals from my days: traveling USA, Kansas City, Missouri, soap and shampoo not tested on animals.

Albert Schweitzer

A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that of plants and animals as that of his fellow men, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help. 

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.
