Should fruitarians eat raw food? Should they eat roots? Should they eat dairy? Should they eat the fruit of my loom?<br><br><br><br>
Discuss.

Wait, what?<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Um roots, no. Dairy, no. Raw food, I THOUGHT so, although if they're fruitarian for "I don't want to kill anything!" rather than "Raw food is healthy!" then i guess it doesn't really matter if they cook it. I thought they were raw, but apparently not. <shrug>

roots and dairy? that sounds... odd for a fruitarian to consume.<br><br><br><br>
I do still wonder about wood and paper products (books,etc) and how fruitarians cope with such things?<br><br><br><br>
are they just "acceptable allowances" much like a vegan that drives a car? Or do some fruitarians strive to not use them?

This thread should be merged with the other one in the heap.<br><br><br><br>
from the "what do you think of meat eaters" thread:<br><br>

The best definition I've seen can be found at wikipedia:<br><br><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruitarian" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruitarian</a></div>

Some fruitarians will eat only what falls (or would fall) naturally from a plant, that is: foods that can be harvested without killing the plant. These foods consist primarily of culinary fruits, nuts, and seeds[7]. Many do not eat grains, believing it is unnatural to do so[8], and some fruitarians feel that it is improper for humans to eat seeds[9]. Additionally, there are fruitarians who believe they should eat only plants that spread seeds when the plant is eaten.[10] Others eat seeds and some cooked foods.[11]<br><br><br><br><b>Many fruitarians use the botanical definitions of fruits and consume pulses,[12] while others include green leafy vegetables[13] and/or root vegetables[14] in their diet. Some occasionally consume some dairy products as well.[15</b>]</div>

<br><br><br>
How is this different from being vegetarian or vegan, then?<br><br><br><br>
You can eat fruit, pulses, greens, roots, seeds, dairy....<br><br><br><br>
If I wrote an article about vegans but said some vegans eat fish & dairy, no one would consider me a credible source. Yet wikipedia...<br><br>
===================================<br><br><br><br>
I'm still waiting for an explanation for the difference between a vegetarian & a fruitarian who eats roots, pulses, and dairy.

I don't think not killing things is the motivation, certainly del mar tortillas don't use wheat that was harvested saving the stalk

An explanation of what is going on, for the benefit of the newbies.<br><br><br><br>
A year ago I embarrassed remilard at another forum where he goes to talk about VBers behind their backs. Remilard never got over the embarrassment, and now, a year later, he keeps trying to get his punches in. I tire of you remilard. Have fun with your thread.<br><br><br><br>
MOD: please delete this pitiful thread already. While you're at it, please consider banning remilard again. He's just out of control these days.
