“Simple Maze” ask about the effects of a fruits diet on the brain, many said they become anxious, depressed, agressive, obsessed, not careful and hard to concentrate.
Here I want to share an experience Dr Bass made on mouse with a fruit diet, when I read this few years ago it scared me because I already saw the DR and Doug (and others) behavior as really strange, not really as peaceful as I could imagine.
Here is an extract:
My personal experiences with fruitarianism
Now I had tried to be a fruitarian myself for two years when I was in my early thirties. I followed the teachings of Arnold Ehret, and I ran into problems such as inflammation of my gums, some loosened teeth, a noticeable paleness and weight loss from 170 to 140 pounds. I lived as a fruitarian for two years with very little cheating. I had always attributed my failure as a total fruitarian to the fact that I didn’t have enough willpower. It wasn’t until my mice experiments thirty years later that I realized the cheating saved my life.
….. When I returned them to the fruitarian diet, after the second day they started the cannibalistic behavior again. They grabbed another young mouse and this time they ate it. The poor thing. I saw it happen. I was shocked. I’d never seen anything like this. “What happened here?” I asked myself.
I had given them a fruitarian diet, a diet that some natural health practitioners fervently believe in. Then I added corn, then avocado, foods that fruitarians are not supposed to include, and still I ran into trouble. It really scared me to witness what had happened to my mice. I worried then and still worry about people who attempt to be fruitarians.
Deficiencies from fruitarian diet
….. To relate the results to humans, this trial seemed to indicate that after being a fruitarian for the human equivalent of three months, humans would show deficiencies and imbalances and health problems. My results suggested that if a fruitarian lived strictly without cheating he would be able to do so for three months before deficiencies began to show. But since the average fruitarian cheats, he doesn’t know the diet doesn’t work. If he didn’t cheat, after three months his body would start breaking down. He wouldn’t necessarily die, but problems would start to develop.
I immediately added greens, lettuce leaves, and carrot tops. I was stunned by this experience. I determined that the cause of death was due to protein deficiencies, mineral deficiencies, and possible sugar poisoning from the excess fruit. This shocked me. I became so disillusioned that I stopped fruit in all the cages. I had about five cages at the time with about 150 mice. From there on no mice got fruit anymore. Only later, after many months, equivalent of several human years, did I gradually re-introduce a little fruit
If you want to compile here your experiences, observations, research it would be useful I think to complete the body part (lost of muscles, sometimes fat gain or thinness, big teeth troubles…).
