Humans are Frugivores – We’re Designed To Eat Mostly Fruit

Guest Writer: Joe Dubs of

Humans are designed to eat mostly fruit. We’re frugivores, just like monkeys and chimps. We have the same physiology, the same stomach acidity, the same tooth structure, the same sweat glands, etc. The evidence that shows we humans are primarily fruit eaters is so overwhelming, that it just goes to show how influential our educational indoctrination truly is.


Fruitarian Humans

We are the most biologically advanced species on Earth. Fruit is the most advanced part of a plant. It has to be, since it’s responsibilities relies solely on the progeny of the plant itself. Fruit, in its strict botanical sense, is the fleshy and ripened ovary of a plant, enclosing the seeds.

Have you ever met someone who doesn’t like fruit? I sure haven’t. We’re told that it’s high in sugar so we should limit our intake, however fruit doesn’t really contain any sugar, at least not our conception of it. We’ve mistakenly equated man-made sugar with God-made sugar. It’s not the same stuff, not even close. One promotes cancer and death, the other, health and vitality.

We instinctively crave fruit. Put a strawberry and a cheeseburger in front of a baby and see which she goes for. Fruit is sweet, and it’s sweet for a reason. It tastes good. This is a clue for humans, so they know to eat it. This first clue would be it’s appealing color, which immediately grabs our attention. The second would be it’s appealing aroma. All species have instructions in their DNA to tell them what to eat and how to live, and humans are no exception. Our trichromatic vision seeks out fruit.

Andrew Smith of the University of Stirling in Scotland believes that trichromacy provides an important advantage for fruit eating species. (which includes apes, orangutans, chimps, monkeys, and humans)

Humans have so-called trichromatic, or three-color, vision. So do Old World species such as chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans. -NatGeo


Fruit isn’t just ‘fruit’. It is ‘the Fruit’, the fruit of the plant. The fruit contains the seed of the plant, it’s only hope for progeny and survival. Because of this, the fruit is biologically designed to be the most advanced part of the plant, and extremely appealing to frugivorous onlookers who will hopefully spread its seeds far and wide. It’s vitally important for fruit to stand out with its vibrant colors and appealing aroma. It’s begging to be picked off the branch, eaten and reproduced. It’s a mutually beneficial trade off. The fruit eaters get to enjoy a mighty tasty snack, and in exchange we assist the plant’s propagation and reproduction. Everybody wins.

Frugivory is thought to have evolved as a mutualism to facilitate seed dispersal in plants. In general, an animal benefits by receiving sustenance from the plant by consuming the fruit. If the animal swallows the seeds of the fruit and later travels to a new area, it assists the propagation of the plant by dispersing the seeds when it defecates. -Brittanica.

Fruit is the easiest food to digest, which should right there, tip us off that we are biologically designed to eat it. Just because we are able to digest other foods, does not make us fit for their consumption. Omnivores are designed to eat everything. Humans can eat meat, but they are not designed to, which means they are not true carnivores or omnivores.


Flesh eaters have very short intestines for the rapid expulsion of decomposing flesh. Vegetarians and Fruitarians, including man, have very long intestines, for the slow digestion of fruit and vegetables.

Imagine you’re the only person on Earth, there is no infrastructure, there are no restaurants, only you and the wilderness. Soon you’ll undoubtably get hungry. What are you going to eat? There are animals running around everywhere, so you could kill one and cook it over a fire. But time is of the essence and you need something to eat now, not later. Besides, the act of killing an unarmed animal and tearing its flesh apart doesn’t exactly sound too appealing.

Luckily there are other options. You could eat some broccoli you found, but you’ll notice it doesn’t taste that good unless it’s at least steamed, not to mention the difficulty in digestion. You could dig up some carrots and eat them, but that too would require effort. The divine architect didn’t provided us with sufficient digging tools. We do however have eyes that seek out bright colors, and hands that are perfect for grabbing and peeling freshly ripened fruit right off the branch.

Beyond the biological evidence, consider that while carnivores take pleasure in killing animals and eating their raw flesh, any human who killed an animal with his or her bare hands and dug into the raw corpse would be considered deranged. Carnivorous animals are aroused by the scent of blood and the thrill of the chase. Most humans, on the other hand, are revolted by the sight of raw flesh and cannot tolerate hearing the screams of animals being ripped apart and killed. The bloody reality of eating animals is innately repulsive to us, more proof that we were not designed to eat meat. -peta

Proponents of the theory that humans should be classified as omnivores note that human beings do in fact possess a modified form of canine teeth. However, these so-called canine teeth are much more prominent in animals that traditionally never eat flesh, such as apes, camels, and the male musk deer. It must also be noted that the shape, length and hardness of these so-called canine teeth can hardly be compared to those of true carnivorous animals. -Vasu Murti



If there are a bunch of fruit trees, one can say that whoever created these fruit trees wanted some apples. In other words, by looking at the order in the world, we can infer purpose and from purpose we begin to get some knowledge of the Creator, the Planner of all this. This is, then, how I look at God. I look at God through the works of God’s hands and from those works imply intentions. From these intentions, I receive an impression of the Almighty. -Arno Allan Penzias


We don’t have claws or hoofs like carnivores and herbivores. We aren’t equipped with sharp teeth and abrasive tongues for ripping apart flesh. In order for meat to taste good we have to cook it. What other species on Earth cooks their food?

Herbivores (grazers and browsers – bison, rabbits, horses, sheep, deer, goats, giraffes, etc. ) are equipped to handle an exclusive raw leaf/grass diet. Granivores (primarily birds) thrive mostly on the raw grains of various grasses.

Carnivores (cats, lions, tigers, wolves, etc.) eat raw meat, but even they cannot thrive on an all meat diet.

Insectivores (ant-eaters, amphibians, other insects) thrive on raw insects.

Omnivores (hogs, brown bears, raccoons, etc.) are “everything eaters” who thrive on nearly all raw foods.

Frugivores (apes, gorillas, chimpanzees, monkeys, orangutans etc.) thrive mostly on raw fruits, succulent fruit-like vegetables, roots, shoots, nuts and seeds.


Those foods and influences to which a species is biologically adapted are those deemed “natural” to its disposition as derived by the sum total of their biological heritage from millions of years of evolution. Cumulative adaptations in each species over eons of time determines their natural dietary needs.

We humans are arboreal (tree dwellers), mostly closely resembling orangutans. Like chimps and monkeys, we are designed to eat mostly fruit. This isn’t to say we can’t also eat vegetables, nuts and seeds, so long as raw fruit is our main course.



Paleopoo: What We Can Learn from Fossilized Feces

Recent research by anthropologists shows that we had an arboreal past. Our genetic ancestors were once tree dwellers. At that time, our genetic ancestors depended upon products of the tree, and later upon the fruits of stalk and vine for our sustenance. Dr. Alan Walker, an anthropologist of John Hopkins University in Maryland, has done research showing that early humans were once exclusively fruit eaters. By careful examination of fossil teeth and fossilized human remains with electron microscopes and other sophisticated tools, Dr. Walker and his colleagues are absolutely certain that early humans until relatively recently, were total fruitarians. These findings were reported in depth in the May 15, 1979 issue of the New York Times.

Dr Alan Walker and his associates, anthropologists at John Hopkins University, using the most modern electronic microscopic equipment,state: “Preliminary studies of fossil teeth have led to the startling suggestion that our early human ancestors (Australopithecus) were not predominantly meat-eaters or even eaters of seeds, shoots, leaves or grasses, nor were they omnivorous. Instead they appear to have subsisted chiefly on a diet of fruit. Every tooth examined from the hominids of the 12 million year period leading up to Homo Erectus appeared to be that of a fruit-eater.” – NY Times, May 1979

Science Verifies That Humans’ Ancestors Were Frugivores

Proof That Humans Are Fruit Eaters!
In 1971, a short-term study by B. J. Meyer was published in the South African Medical Journal describing how lipid profiles and glucose tolerances improved on a particular fruitarian diet. In a further trial in the study, body weights of overweight subjects showed a tendency to “level off” at the “‘theoretically ideal’ weight”. -wikipedia

I do not intend to enter into any lengthy discussion of comparative anatomy and physiology at this place, but will content myself with saying that every anatomical, physiological and embryo-logical feature of man definitely places him in the class frugivore. The number and structure of his teeth, the length and structure of his digestive tract, the position of his eyes, the character of his nails, the functions of his skin, the character of his saliva, the relative size of his liver, the number and position of the milk glands, the position and structure of the sexual organs, the character of the human placenta and many other factors all bear witness to the fact that man is constitutionally a frugivore. -Herbert M. Shelton


Eating foods foreign to our species specific diet are mucus forming and lead to dis-ease.

Arnold Ehret claimed that pus- and mucus-forming foods were the cause of human disease, “schleimlose” (slime-free) foods were the key to human health and “fasting (simply eating less) is Nature’s omnipotent method of cleansing the body from the effects of wrong and too much eating.”The term mucus, a glyco-protein acid, derives from the Greek “myxa”. In 1812, William Cullen referred to mucus as ‘butyraceous matter’ and in 1877, Gustav Schlickeysen referred to a mucus layer beneath the human skin in Obst Und Brod. It was later termed ‘mucin’ by Dr. Teofilo De La Torre in the 1950s,’mucous’ by Morris Krok in the 1960s, ‘impacted fecal matter’ by Norman Walker in the 1970s ‘mucoid matter’ by Robert Gray in the 1980s,and ‘mucoid plaque’ in the 1990s. In the 2000s, Daniel Reid re-introduced the term ‘mucus’. Gray made a further distinction between healthy and unhealthy mucus, and how certain substances left an internal residue which the body suspended in mucu, in contrast with a fruitarian diet.

Having denounced the nitrogenous-albumin metabolic theory in 1909, Ehret learned of a contemporary, Thomas Powell M.D., in 1912, who concurred with his belief that “grape sugar” (simple sugars in fruits and vegetables) was the optimum fuel source, body building material and agent of vitality, for humans, not protein rich foods -wikipedia (Arnold Ehret)

“Disease is an effort of the body to eliminate waste, mucus and toxemias, and this system assists Nature in the most perfect and natural way. Not the disease but the body is to be healed; it must be cleansed, freed from waste and foreign matter, from mucus and toxemias accumulated since childhood. You cannot buy health in a bottle, you cannot heal your body, that is, cleanse your system in a few days, you must make “compensation” for the wrong you have done your body all during your life. My system is not a cure or a remedy, it is a regeneration, a thorough house-cleaning, the acquisition of such clean and perfect health as you never knew before.” -The Mucusless Diet Healing System. by Arnold Ehret

Fruit as the Treatment of Cancer and Diabetes!
It is “off point” to think that one must “kill” or starve a cancer cell. Yes, sugar feeds all cells even cancer cells this is off point though in that to starve a cancer cell you will affect all your cells. This same philosophy is used in chemotherapy and in the medical community. This is ridiculous in that if you damage or weaken your other cells, they will then become your new A-typical or cancer cells. The point of cancer is your sewer system – the Lymphatic System. It is your “sewer system” which removes and neutralizes cellular wastes (acids) and damaged cells. It’s the “acids” that can kill you. By the way, the pH of chemotherapy is equivalent to battery acid!

Hippocrates Institute, in my opinion, is quite off base and can hurt people who have sugar metabolism problems where fruit would help them tremendously. All of our diabetics get fruit. Diabetes is one of the easiest conditions to cure! To summarize: those who have higher fasting glucose levels are starving their cells for essential carbon, which is vital in keeping a cell healthy and alive. Fruits would be very advisable in these cases, as fruit sugars can be used by cells where pancreatic and adrenal function can block glucose (vegetable sugar) entry. You might initially have some blood glucose “loading” but this will disappear and your cells will be getting energy and therefore, the atrophy will stop.

Remember also that fruits are much more electrical (energetic) to one’s body and are much higher in antioxidants and astringents than vegetables, which makes them ideal in cancer cases where one must understand the lymphatic system. -Dr. Robert Morse


A Tragic Myth: The Truth About Sugars

As the engine in your car needs a carbon-based fuel to run, so does your physical body. Of the main constitutients, your body needs to function amino acids, fatty acids, and sugars are primary. However, it is sugar mixed with oxygen that your body requires to run the machine. To understand sugars better, simple definitions of sugars are necessary.

  • Monosaccharides: A single or simple sugar, e.g., glucose, fructose, or galactos, also known as carbohydrates
  • Poly or Disaccharides: Starch or complex sugars consisting of several glucose/fructose bonds depending upon the type of starch or carbohydrate.

Your body uses digestion to separate the simple from the complex. In other words, your body can’t use proteins, it can only use amino acids. So the body must break down a complex amino acid structure (called a protein) into amino acids; fats to fatty acids; and starch or complex sugars to simple sugars. With this factual information, it should start to become evident that sugars are a big factor in health! Your body mixes glucose or fructose with oxygen to achieve cellular energy known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Without ATP a cell will weaken and become attacked (mainly by parasites), or bonded with a virus, or antigen.

You must understand your body does not use proteins for energy. It is only the adrenaline or epinephrine in meat that is energetic. This is a problem in that your adrenal glands are supposed to supply your body with adrenaline, when needed, for nerve function.

When you consume complex sugars, as in anything complex, your body now has to deal with the overload of simple sugars and now has to store them as fat, excrete what it can, and use the fungal family to help it rid itself of all the unneeded sugar (since sugars are mostly carbon bonds that are broken down into carbonic acid.) Now we are back to excessive acidosis.

The same is true with proteins and fats. A lot of man’s toxemia comes from excess proteins, fats, and sugars, which are broken down into acids, stored and/or parasitically acted upon. With a stagnant lymphatic system, this creates: systemic acidosis, body odors, culturing of parasites (bacterium, fungi, protozoa’s, etc.) all of which starts the inflammatory (immune) response leading to the atrophy of the body.


Fruit (sugars) and Candida (fungus)

It is said, ” Sugars feed Candida. I hope with the above understanding you can see through this myth! If you put out a piece of cheese, a slice of bread, and some grapes or a ripe banana on the counter in your kitchen, which one is going to grow mold (fungus) on it first? It will be a race between the bread and cheese. The fruit will only grow mold as it begins to ferment, since the cheese and bread are already fermented.

Remember: Nature uses the parasitic kingdom to clean and eliminate that which is not needed, damaged, or in someway loses its ability to support life in a healthy way. Fermentation and putrefaction are the processes of decay, or breakdown, which require parasitic action. Healthy cells and lymph do not require parasitic action. Of course this includes the cells in your body. With this understanding, what type of sugar could feed Candida (yeast, fungus, molds, warts, etc.)? That’s right… STARCHES and EXCESS COMPLEX SUGARS!


Sugars (fruit) and Cancer

“Sugars feeds cancer” is another tremendous myth. To claim sugars feed cancer is to deny what decades of science has proven. To starve the body for a sugar is to starve the cell of its energy. This causes cancer. Starvation, acidosis, and ketosis damage cells. A damaged cell is on its walk down the road to A-typical and becoming a cancer cell. This is also true of proteins and refined fats or too many supplemented fatty acids.

Remember: The body is simplistic. More is not better. Less is often times better e.g., fasting of all types, under-eating, etc. Acids feed cancer as acids create inflammation and the parasite response to the above. As previously stated, glucose and fructose are both simple sugars. To say a fruit feeds cancer is also saying vegetables feed cancer. This is all stupid thinking! Even the American Cancer Society recommends a high fruit and vegetable diet!

There are many properties that make fruit superior to vegetables. Fruits are higher in antioxidants and astringents and will move your lymphatic system far better than vegetables. This is why one sees a lymphatic response when fruit is consumed. That is what you want! Fruits, also being a simple sugar, are superior for diabetics, pancreatitis, hepatitis, and all other gastric and intestinal conditions. Fructose does not require insulin or extensive digestive enzymes. Fruits’ magnetic (electrical) energy is the highest of all foods, making them superior brain and nerve foods. They will bring energy to the body where most other foods take it away. NEVER FEAR THE USE OF FRUITS!

Final Notes:

Fruit is vital to our existence. Personally, without fruit, I don’t know what I would do. Fruit has transformed my life since I began this journey back in 2012. Since then my diet has been at least 51% fruit. I’ve eliminated my own health problems with diet alone. When you know what you are biologically designed to eat, it’s not rocket science.

In all the healing modalities I’ve come across, raw fruit is always the common denominator.

    I’m familiar with all you’re talking about, going back the to the 1980’s. Since 1980 I’ve been interested in the correlation of diet to ‘encumbrance diseases’ caused by uneliminated food, gunking up the lymph and such. Clearly I do best with fresh fruit (but not dates or dried fruit, except minimally,… or in the case of typical dried fruits, soaked-hydrated), cheese, greens, milk, kefir, whole eggs, and meat. Bovine preferred, rather than goats, for example. Bovine is better for my body than goat. Veganism, or fruitarianism, or nearly such, isn’t adequate for my body. I speak from hardcore flesh, blood, dental, and bone experience, speaking of my own body. I avoid eating starches because I find starches gunk up my lymph, which leads to various problems if left to continue and fester. I find grains, for me, best consumed after a few days of sprouting, say 1.5x the length of the seed, cooked, and eaten with melted cheese.

      Hey Liam,

      It’s true that early humans had to eat meat. This happened because humans tend to explore. We ended up in cold/dry places like deserts and places with long winters where furry mammals,birds, tubers and cold/arid tolerant vegetables were found. Fruit doesn’t really thrive in cold or dry places. You cant say that hairless mammals with very thin unarmored skin were designed to survive in places like that. We can of course do it, but it doesn’t mean its optimal for our health. Also remember that they were eating free roaming wild caught meat and it wasn’t every single day. It wasn’t factory produced, hormone injected animals living in their own feces. Its not that humans got it “right” for 200,000 years, they just did what they needed to live in harsh environments. It doesn’t mean they lived as long or felt as good as they possibly could. Also, there are structures on earth that have been dated as far back as 1 million+ years. You just don’t hear about them in mainstream education because it disproves a lot of things.

      Liam I’m not picking on you but do you actually kill, skin and process your own meat? For most people its pretty intolerable and unnatural. If you lived on a giant tropical island with your family and there were animals plants and fruits everywhere to eat, would you teach your kids to kill, skin and dismember animals or to just walk up to or climb a tree and grab as much of the most colorful fruit as they can fill themselves with. You wouldn’t need to drink as much water from the stream or lake if all you ate was fruit, lowering your chance of drinking a pathogen from unclean water.

    Thanks for taking the time to write this up. After much reading, researching and some experimenting, I have to agree with what you’ve written here. I will continue experimenting with my own diet and in a few years, I will know for sure. I would like to add, that I think herbs are also important in the human diet. I don’t know how important they are long term, but for healing and cleansing the system they are quite potent.
    I don’t fancy myself to be especially religious, but It is written in the bible:
    Genesis 1:29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.

    Interesting article – I like how you’ve compiled the information and it makes a compelling case. I would concur that humans are primarily frugivores with a penchant for readily edible veggies (lettuce,sprouts,tender roots/greens) That said, much like our primate cousins we are occasional meat eaters. Both chimps and bonobos (our nearest genetic relatives) have been documented eating meat occasionally and getting a good portion of their protein from bugs and grubs. Even deer and cows have been spotted eating small birds. It’s not a daily occurrence but apparently in nature few things are as absolute as we believe and even herbivores will make up for nutritional deficit with a small protein snack.

    • Evan November 16, 2019 at 20:43 · Reply

      Hey Daniel,

      It is true that chimps will eat meat occasionally, but it is also well documented that it makes them aggressive to the point of killing one another if fed as a staple. So is it really optimal or even necessary or is there a price even for them?

      There was a study done on monkeys that lived by resorts. Some of the monkeys would drink alcoholic beverages that were left on the tables. They found that only a small percentage of monkeys would drink the alcohol (about the same percentage of humans that choose to drink) and that some would over drink to the point of falling over and passing out ( almost the same percentage as humans). It would seem that primates, like humans indulge in things that pique their curiosity that may not necessarily be beneficial.

    I am sooo glad I stumbled upon this. You have done a lot of work to compile this and I sincerely hope it is appreciated. I saw Dr.. Walker’s article in the NYT 40 years ago- amazing how his research has been ignored It changed my diet to vegan at least. (Most of the young vegans I encounter today are into faux meats it seems, manufactured by the giant food companies.)

    Are you aware of the study done in South Africa? I’ll try to dig it up for you. Blessings upon you.

      No I am not aware of the South African study at this time. Glad you enjoyed this one.

      I too started being vegan with the fake meat love affair, it is helpful as a transition, but after a while we will all let that go. I have and so will they eventually :-)

    This all makes sense. But there is 1 problem. It can’t be that we are created to eat only fruits. We have seasons. In spring, summer seasons we can have a lot of fruits and berries, but in winter seasons there are none of them. Million years ago we did not have fridge or we could not get fruits from Ecuador when I’m living in Russia let’s say. Fruit/berries eating 365 days per year was possible only for people who were living in tropic, subtropic regions. So I don’t know. I really like this idea that humans are frugivores but this 1 problem doesn’t let me to believe for 100%.

    • Norman December 28, 2018 at 21:44 · Reply

      Hi Algirdas

      Your question does make sense as well.
      My answer is for me, from my perspective, taking into account all i have learned about humanity as a species and where we came from. So this is my truth, ll truths are true for the believer.

      Now it is my understanding, that according to many many different higher dimensional beings, like Bashar and adronis and people who channel these beings and also Pleiadians, that humans are a HYBRID species, that we were created as an experiment. This experiment was sanctioned by the Galactic federation council, which is a confederation of over 500 worlds/planets. They oversee a lot of what happens to members of this federation of planets.

      Apparently they wanted to come up with a way of assisting souls evolve from the dark to the light in a more streamlines process, and not taking billions of years to figure out how to stop killing each other and destroying entire galaxies through ignorance and being lower dimensional. So all these worlds contributed DNA and species to form this experiment that would play out in a bubble. they took dna from many races in the federation and added it to the HOMINID species of Earth, which was the APE. Apes ARE located where there is fruit year round if I am not mistaken. This is why we are also more advanced that an APE and have less hair and have higher brain powers etc.

      This type of evolution, I am told is normal in the Universe. that life evolves in many many ways and not just linearly through time. Life evolve as it needs to, sometime with help. We ourselves have helped the Zetas who were about to be extinct evolve by providing them some DNA ourselves. See? still evolution.

      Now we see why they say that man has to have a missing link because it took us millions of years to evolve to Cro-Magnon man and then 50,00 years later, we are on the moon. that would not be possible without help. Please research about the idea that life is all over the universe. there have been over 17 races of liens who have visited and talked with our government. They have just decided not to tell us bout it. :-)

      but we are in a time now of revelations, as per the bible. All will be revealed, just like its being revealed to you. All you have to do is ask.

      these are my truths that i share in order to be of service. I hope this helps.

      Bless Sings

    This article is complete garbage with many flaws. You are going to make people sick. Fruits do not contain many vital nutrients that the human body needs including all of the fat soluble vitamins. The only nutrition fruit contains is fructose, vitamin c and fiber. There’s no essential fats, no vitamin a (that can be converted), no B12 and that’s only the beginning. What your recommending is going to make someone’s pancreas scream. This is extremely dangerous advice to give as it will cause a whole host of medical issues. Some of which will have grave consequences. Even adding vegetables, legumes and nuts/seeds is still not enough considering these foods still don’t make a complete diet. Why do you think vegans go to the bathroom so often? Because these foods (especially vegetables don’t digest at all. Why do you think vegans eat all day long and have a grayish tint to their skin? Because they’re not getting the nutrients the body needs (including iron) and are essentially starving themselves. Do you research people and don’t follow this cult bullshit.

      Actually, it’s the gut micro biome which manufactures all of these. There is definitely more to many fruits. Amino acids and fats included. Then there is avocado, and many fruits not known to the western world.

      People who have problems on fruit do not have a balanced microbiome. It applies to vegetable diets. Not everyone has the microbiome to be healthy. One fecal transplant and individuals previously unable to stay healthy on vegetables are now able.

      I lived 4 months in just fruits wile working hard in construction. I had more energy and vitality than I ever have. The problem is having a variety of fruits, or any fruit for that matter, all year without living in the tropics; organizing of frugivorous specie’s

        Dan, thanks for sharing your own experiences with the fruit diet. Very helpful and informative. Thanks also about the micro biome info in the gut.

      You have to educate yourself first my friend and then talk.

      Hey Jeremy,

      Many fruits like avocado, olives, jack fruit, durian and even papaya have high amounts of essential fatty acids in them. Also fruits dont just contain vitamin C, they contain electrolytes in the perfect ratios,all of the minerals we need, as well as the highest amount of antioxidants. Orange colored fruits are also very high in vitamin A. There is a ton of misinformation out there that is paid for by beef and processed sugar companies as well as supplement companies. The american cancer society recommends a diet high in fruits and vegetables. Also if you fully read the article you will learn that the sugar from fruit doesn’t affect the pancreas the same way processed sugar does. I can vouch for this fact because I was having really bad liver and pancreas issue for over a year, i wouldnt digesting anything not even steamed chicken or vegetable soup. My pancreatic elastase 1 enzymes were really low. Normal range is 200-500 ug i was at 97ug. I struggled for a year with finding the right diet. It wasn’t until I switched to a fruit diet that I started to see a big change. After 3 months of 100% fruit I got tested at 310ug and my gastroenterologist couldn’t believe it. She said shes never seen anyone recover the pancreas that fast.

    Humans and chimpanzees are not frugivores. Sure, chimpanzees eat fruit on the regular, but will also hunt monkeys. Once, they almost hunted a species to extinction.

      Hey Aedan,

      Chimps have been known to eat meat and it is very well documented that they become very aggressive to the point of killing each other when it is a staple. Just because they do it does’t mean it is optimal. How do we know that these cannibal chimps weren’t affected by humans in some way through being hunted themselves or through habitat destruction? Maybe they could’t find enough fruit so they adapted to meat to survive. It doesn’t seem natural that one species causes another to go extinct. That type of thing usually only happens when humans impact them in some way.

    I totally agree with you, I’m a vegan athlete living off starches and fruit and veggies.

    on a caloric basis
    24 bananas = 30bread slices = 1gallon milk = 1gallon oatmeal = 3 quarts rice = 30 large apples =5 quarts of orange or apple juice = 1.25 cups of olive or other oil = 30 5oz servings of non fatty fish = 22 5oz servings of fatty fish = 12 1/4lb beef servings = 1.25 gallons = 1 1/3 gallons of potatoes =
    1 1/4 cups of raisins = 20 cantaloupes = 3 1/3 cups of nuts or seeds …
    If I had to eat one day from the above, I would probably go for the bananas.
    Maybe the raisins, but probably not.
    the beef or fatty fish, I’m not sure.
    I might be able to make the orange juice, too.

    No way the milk, oatmeal, apples, potatoes, olive oil, nuts or seeds, non fatty fish.

    Now, day two might be a different story.
    Vegetables seem pointless, no calories in them worth the effort to even bother.

    What a load of bollocks! We are omnivore. you have selected text to convince yourself and others that we are frugivore which is ridiculous and dangerous. Try surviving for the rest of your life on fruit and veg and see how long it takes before your body starts to break down! Our gut PH levels are more acidic than herbivores and that is for a reason….to destroy pathogens that exist within meat. Scavengers have higher acidic levels because there are even more pathogens in the decomposing meat. Herbivores have lower acidic levels and typically a second gut or sac with which to ferment plant matter. Birds are classed as omnivores as they can eat nuts, seeds as well as insects and worms. I could go on but seriously….you should be ashamed of yourself. convince yourself of your own beliefs but don’t force this nonsense on other people.

      I have not had any animal products for like 15 years and ive never been healthier. Ask my doctor. Labs are all fie. Cured all my ailments. There are many many people who have not even any animal products all their lives and no issues. Body builder who are vegan from birth and have huge muscles and even won competitions. Its called veganism. And its very healthy. Why don’t you know this? I am not ashamed of being healthy and disease free. #1 killer of humans is heart disease. Cant have heart disease if you never had any animal products. Bless Sings and have a great day. Eat all the meat you desire. But do try and look inside and ask yourself why you are so angry at what I am eating. think about it. The simple answer is that you are angry at your self. That is what a psychological professional would suggest. We only get angry when we believe something is TRUE, not false. :-0 We laugh at things we dont believe. and get angry at things we do believe. This is a fact. Bless Sings

    Hi Norman,
    I noticed above on the best smoothie ever made it was suggested to blend the ingredients with a vitamix, which blends at high speed, i was curious on your thoughts about a slow juicer, as they blend at a much slower rpm as not to oxidize the fruit, i think you could then call it the best smoothie ever made or not?
    Thanks for creating this website, i am going to make a start on the frugivore diet tomorrow which will be the planetary alignment day, what a day to make a start on what to me sounds like an amazing time to be alive, the attraction to all enlightened things seems to be increasing every day, your wonderful web site is a fantastic part of enlightenment, Cheers.
