All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Vlog

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

Starting a day with 10K to the Pacific Ocean, on the Beach, and back: walk, run, birds, plastic, parking, flowers.

This is how I look.

Lena's vlog from California - not only pretty things: how regular people live, what fruit trees grow in Orange County, and schools.

The second lifestyle vlog by Lena, a European vegan fruitarian in California: avoiding construction, trying to vlog while exercising.

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.
