Humans are Frugivores:
We’re Designed To Eat Mostly Fruit
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 suggesting humans are primarily fruit eaters is so overwhelming, that it just goes to show how influential our educational indoctrination truly is.
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 meant 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.
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 vine.
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 (humans, 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.
“The alternative to treatment is true naturopathy (detoxification), a little known science of nature that has been used for hundreds of years by hundreds of thousands of people and animals worldwide. It has restored health and vitality to their physical, emotional and mental bodies. Detoxification encompasses the sciences of chemistry, biochemistry, botanical science and physics and has always been at the heart of true healing. For that reason, detoxification should be at the heart of natural medicine today, but has been forgotten in our modern world of treatment.”
~ Robert Morse, ND.
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
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”.
-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
“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!
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.
A Tragic Myth: The Truth About Sugars
- 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.
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 feed 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!

An Open Debate on Fruit Sugar
The following of the opening chapter from Dr. Robert Morse’s “The Detox Miracle Sourcebook” (PDF)
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. Raw fruit is THE ANSWER to most of your health problems. Please, for the love of God, try eating a primarily fruit diet, and sit back and watch your dreams come to fruition.
