Zasko, from what I've heard you're right. A lot of fruitarians avoid seeds, because they consider it inchoate life. I've thought about that, and I personally don't consider seeds to be alive yet (and yeah, I'm pro-abortion. Maybe we ought to just dump the discussion here
Fruitarian calcium sources: Brazil nuts
(and most nuts in general), soybeans and sea salt are some pretty easy sources. I think goatee's grandmother suggests eating dirt, too. Right goatdude?
Fruitist deoderant: I use Jason Apricot (ingredients: apricot oil, shea butter and certified organic corn starch--all from fruits*) Doesn't have much of a taste, though. Not that I checked.
Diana: You're right, since we have no long-term studies on fruitarianism, it could potentially be a risky venture (as with any extreme dietary change). So far it feels great though. Maybe if you're curious, you don't have to go 100% fruit but you could just try to consciously add more fruits to your diet & less of the potato/onion/garlic sort of stuff. Either way, it's great that you're receptive to the idea.
If more ppl try it out, even for just a week, then we'll have more "experimental data" to go by.
P.S. SamW, so that's really you in your avatar? I thought it was Sam Neil the actor. (Hey as long as everyone's giving me hell for mine, I might as well spread it around).
*Yep, I know that the entire corn stalk is cut to harvest the corn. But I'm not ready to take on commercial harvesting yet. Maybe next year.
