30 Bananas a Day!

Author of "I Live on Fruit," Essie Honiball dies at age 89 in Cape Town, South Africa. Hers is one of the most amazing healing stories. It was an honor to have corresponded with her a few years ago. Morris Krok gave me a copy of her beautiful hardcover book. Great inspiration from a sweet soul. -DaveEssie-H-3.jpg

Sorry to hear she passed. That seems so young for a fruitarian :-(

Are there any fruitarians older than 89 out there?

No probably not just saying lots of non vegans live till 89 and beyond actually. The world record for age is 123 I believe and they were not vegan. I would just assume that a fruitarian would live longer. But perhaps not.

Sooo many factors go into aging. 89 is still at least 10 years longer than the average. Food is a very important one though. My grandpa died at 66 of a heart attack (he was overweight too). That could have easily been prevented. 

89 is just over the median age for a woman to die here in New Zealand. 

Oh really? I suppose I shouldn't be comparing it to the McDonald's & KFC pathetic numbers of the U.S.

If you have billions of non-vegan people and look at the one person who owns the world record of age and compare him to ANY other person he will always be the one who died at a later age. If there were any statistics about the lifespan of low fat raw vegans - only than you could do a reasonable comparison at all (to the lifespan of omnivores of course! not to this world-record-person).

Bernado de la pallo is 112

Quality of life counts along with length too ;-)

Rest in peace, Essie.  

Thank you for your legacy.  

A lot of people who come into this lifestyle do so out of severe or chronic illness, not necessarily at the start of their life. She may have only live to 60 for all we know, but the diet extended her life. We don't know the cause and the surrounding factors to make a judgement either way though.

She did it for love
