Allan Savory: How to fight desertification and reverse climate change
I accept that the term 'frugivore' is probably overstepping the truth because humans can survive on a variety of foods, but we are best suited to tropical fruits and baby greens. Ultimately we should not look to our short-lived ancestors for a nutrition guide as many of them were malnourished, instead we need to look at a diet that meets our nutritional requirements today. Nevertheless here are some dietary tips we can learn from studying primates: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkZSF4IPMrY. There are many raw vegans who share their excellent blood test results. Successful raw vegan athletes like Michael Arnstein, Harley Johnstone and Tim Van Orden are all over thirty and out there breaking records and thrashing twenty year olds in big races. I think the easist way to show you can easily hit your RDAs on this diet is to show you a diary of one day's nutrition for me: http://www.30bananasaday.com/photo/cron-nutrients-3rd-jan?context=user. Harley Johnstone aka 'Durianrider' has posted his blood test results several times on youtube and here is a good video showing Chris Kendall's blood test results and details of his doctor's comments and reaction: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2zfGUqYcTM

Richard Weller: Could the sun be good for your heart?
A Tufts university study found that 39% of Americans are B12 deficient or borderline deficient (by the US standards which are much lower than Japanese minimums for B12). It is not a vegan problem. B12 is created by bacteria in our bodies. If you can forgive the psychedelic tie dye, Don Bennett has some good information on B12: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NE7BYdpOjU

Christopher McDougall: Are we born to run?
I agree, humans are primates and primates are frugivores, humans are frugivores. You only have to take a look at our physiology to see that. Also, most of the top 10 most intelligent animals are frugivores - parrots, elephants etc. Read 801010 by Dr Doug Graham and google Michael Arnstein the fruitarian ultra-marathon champion.

Alanna Shaikh: How I'm preparing to get Alzheimer's
She doesn't say anything about being a long-term high carb raw vegan, so I'm guessing she thinks she is eating 'right', but animal products are what causes dementia. Please educate yourselves, we are primates and should be eating like it!
