Hello =) So - I consider myself always the student, because there are always new things to learn. I'm also a student pursuing a degree in Physical Sciences. Insomniac information junkie with Asperger's describes me pretty well.
I also grew up with a laundry list of physiological problems. Too many to list. I was prescribed pharmaceuticals galore, for too many years. Nasty business that was. Nobody ever even SUGGESTED that diet might play a role. Went vegan around 2006. Profound improvement in every aspect of life, as many can relate.
It really set me on a path towards constantly trying to improve myself. Physically, mentally, spiritually. Although it tends to make relating to other people more difficult, the rewards have been worth it. Especially when you find out that you've inspired someone you know to likewise seek some form of self-improvement.
I found out fruitarians exist around Dec 2011 by stumbling upon some Tony Wright videos. Then I soon found DR's YouTube channel, and it all went bananas from there.
Oh, I'm a total nature freak too. I get a stupid grin on my face thinking about wandering through the jungle-like woods of southern Ohio as a kid, swinging 40 feet on natural vines...

I will comply because we are The Borg and resistance is fruitile
