On May 4th, “Avatar” director James Cameron will celebrate two years of, in his own words, a diet devoid “a single molecule of anything that came from an animal.”
“This includes meat, eggs, dairy, cheese, fish, etc. I feel great. I feel like I’ve set the clock back 15 years,” he added.
Forget popping pills: Physicians have begun recommending vegetables and fruits to their patients. From the American Cancer Society to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, medical groups and doctors alike are now touting plant-based diets as the pathway towards improved overall health, reported OrganicAuthority.com. And quite frankly, it’s about time.
The fact is that embracing a diet with a heavy emphasis on fruit and vegetable consumption has been linked to numerous health benefits. One of these is a healthier heart. The researchers behind a recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that plant-based diets greatly reduced the risk of developing atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, as well as halted the progression of coronary heart disease. Additionally, the researchers noted that plant-based proteins were far more “heart-healthy” than animal proteins.
Sadly that mayonnaise contains canola oil, which I would consider very unhealthy.

You may also use borax.
No need for highly toxic fluoride toothpaste.
Even better if you have a healthy diet like her (or myself) and therefor an alkaline saliva, which will protect your teeth and remineralizes them!

“Miss Morgan, who works as a chartered surveyor, had lost hope until three months ago, when she started a grain-free, raw vegan diet – eating only raw fruit and vegetables for her three meals a day.
She said the diet has stopped the flare-ups and her skin is healthier than ever.”
An eczema sufferer whose skin would ooze, scale, flake and peel off believes she’s found a cure in raw fruit and veg.
Alice Morgan, 22, from Liverpool, has suffered with a debilitating form of eczema which would cause her body to become covered in blisters over the past three years.
Milk is for babies. Cows’ milk is not beneficial for humans. It’s for baby cows.
However, if you want to have milk and cheese in your diet, then raw goats milk & cheese is a much, much better choice.
But, but, but … humans need meat and milk to be “strong and energetic”.
And where else could you possibly get your protein?
Think again …
Here are some raw vegans …
Where do you think do they’ve got their protein from?
And here is a human vegan …
And the kicker:
Milk is leaching calcium from the body! (… which explains why the countries with the highest milk intake also have the highest rates of osteoporosis.)
Four big names in the dairy industry reportedly conspired to artificially inflate the cost of dairy products in the United States. The market fraud occurred between 2004 and 2008 when milk prices increased 66 cents per hundredweight.
The increase was made possible through a pact between several major milk brands that unnecessarily slaughtered a substantial number of dairy cows.
“The bill claims that depriving minors of animal products can cause neurological disorders and anemia by leaving them iron-, zinc-, and vitamin-B12-deficient.”
Poor gorillas, orang-utans, elephants, horses, deers and cattle. They are all vegans and must suffer from neurological disorders and anemia, being iron-, zinc-, and vitamin-B12-deficient.
Poor, weak, suffering animals …
The meat of some of these animals is considered to be the best source of vitamin-B12 and protein, but where did they get their B12 and protein from???
Maybe they should jail all these animals as well, because they too are making their children go vegan.
That said, being a vegan does not automatically mean eating healthy.
There are lots of vegans that have a horrible, horrible diet.
And yes, children’s health would suffer immensely from such a crappy diet, almost like being on a McD junk food diet.
However, there also have been “brilliant” parents, with “normal” eating habits, who fed their toddlers left over pizza (or whatever kind of food has been left over) by blending it in a high speed mixer and that way killed their children with this newly created baby food diet.
Most children suffer greatly from eating a SAD (Standard American Diet).
A carefully selected vegan diet or even a raw vegan diet is absolutely great for your health and for your children.
If parliamentarian Elvira Savino has her way, Italian parents who insist on a vegan diet for their children will risk up to four years in jail. In her shockingly tyrannical over-reach, the center-right party member seeks to “stigmatize the reckless and dangerous eating behavior imposed by parents” who make children go vegan.
“I have nothing against vegans or veganism as long as it is a free choice by adults,” she told Reuters in a telephone interview on Wednesday, days after she presented the proposed law in the lower house Chamber of Deputies.
“I just find it absurd that some parents are allowed to impose their will on children in an almost fanatical, religious way, often without proper scientific knowledge or medical consultation,” she said.
“Do-it-yourself on these matters terrorizes me.”

Me and my father (Anand) met up with a 104 year old Swami in Rishikesh by chance. He is fit, witty and honest to the core. Here is what he says (many things he says in jest so please take it in the right spirit)-
Baba: You should be like this slim & trim, just like these foreigners. I am like this because I am a poor man. I don’t have sugar, tea, tobacco & cigarettes. (Points at his tongue) this tongue is a nomadic vagabond. Slips every time it sees a rasagulla (an Indian sweet).
Young boy in white Kurta asks: Please tell me something for body building.
Baba: Eat as many raw things as you can. There are 3 food shops. One that the God opened. 2nd is the Hotel. The 3rd shop is that of the Mother. The latter two are useless. Only the food made by God is the one to eat — All fruits, all raw vegetables, and all dry fruits. These you don’t like (chuckles at the fast food addicted youngsters). Young boy refutes.
Matt Frazier is a marathoner and ultra-runner who runs the popular fitness site No Meat Athlete. But Matt says that growing up, he wasn’t that into running or fitness. His journey began in college, when he started going to the gym. On a whim, he and a group of friends decided to try to run a marathon. Matt’s personal goal was to qualify for the Boston Marathon. He missed the qualifying time by 103 minutes. In his own words, he “wasn’t a runner.” He also lived on the typical college diet of junk food and takeout.
From the article:
“Since then, I have competed in some of the toughest and most extreme ultra-marathons in the world, including Badwater, a 135-mile race in Death Valley in 130-degree heat. I am now in the best shape of my life at 45 years old.”
In 2005, I was 34 years old, over 320 pounds, had ridiculously high blood pressure, high cholesterol, prediabetes, and two herniated discs in my spine. I was eating fast food three or four times a day, popping pain pills (Vicodin, Percocet, codeine) like Tic-Tacs, and washing it all down with a bottle of whiskey each day in a futile attempt to escape reality.
Despite my efforts to hide it from others, the reality was I was on the fast track to an early death. The saddest part was that I was actually hoping to die. Despite abusing my body for more than a decade, I was somehow surviving—just barely, but alive nonetheless. I was still breathing despite all my medical problems, depression, and hopeless chemical and food addictions.
I turned 40 years old in June 2011, and was struggling to find enough energy to make it through the day, despite the multiple cups of coffee and refined “sugar fixes” I would consume. My mental clarity was nonexistent. On top of that, my cholesterol numbers were often high—one doctor even wanted me to start taking a statin. But I refused, and ultimately decided to take control of my own wellness.

Just came across this video.
I do not recommend the fruitarian diet, but I do recommend a raw food diet.
In Europe and the US you cannot buy a great variety of organic fruits.
The fruits often are not harvested when they are ripe, so they contain less nutrients.
Maybe a fruitarian diet works when you are living where all those tropical fruits grow naturally.
However, I believe – meaning I can’t proof it – that a fruitarian diet is crashing your body in the long term.
Fruits are great for detoxing, whereas vegetables are better for nourishing the body.
Greens are essential for your health.
Just look at her:
