IT's sad there is so much division in this raw vegan world. The fact is that Brian Clement had enormous experience overseeing waterfasts in Sweden and saw such poor results that he concluded (many many years ago before this whole Doug disaster) that people are just too mineral and nutrient deficient for prolonged water fasting. This is why he teaches green juices and to use them for fasting (that's not the only thing, but is key for remineralizing).

brian fasts one day per week on juices. Every 7 years, he fasts for one whole year (do the math). Fasting one day a week routinely versus 3 weeks here and there is not such a shock to the body, as Durianrider has pointed out from seeing the metabolic damage that has been shared with him from past fasters.

Durianrider is a person to be respected, as he is so connected with people and by people sharing their experiences, he actually has taken in a lot of knowledge. Durianrider also cares about people and the planet. The problem I see is that Durianrider has put a wall between himself and Brian Clement all over this fruit business.

Why can't people just put aside their differences? Actually I see no real problems. Brian ate a ton of fruit in his youth and fruit helps detox the body. Later Brian focused on remineralizing. LIkely Harley will one day too follow Brian's path and focus on remineralizing and tonifying, as he settles down later. There really is no conflict in diet here. It comes down to what stage of life you are at.

People have to stop being JEALOUS of each other. Brian is in a wealthy class and that doesn't make his knowledge wrong for poor just makes it inaccessible. Just because a person cannot afford Brian's supplements that doesn't make BRian evil. At least Brian has put all the key info on youtube for poor people and they can learn to sprout at home. If they have more money, they can buy things like supplements.

Focus on what we have in common and united we will stand.
