Innes returns to the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow after 28 years of vegan living on 4 continents. He will talk on the subject of how

'Raw Vegan is More Vegan'

Your input is welcomed as we proceed.
This will be part of a Fruitluck picnic where we all bring along fresh fruit to eat. Preferably ripe, sweet and organic when possible. :)

Innes’ topics for discussion includes : 1. How eating raw food can be better for human health, animals and the environment. Therefore, eating raw can be more vegan than eating a cooked vegan diet or other diets.2. How fruitarianism can be even better than some other forms of raw veganism.3. The historical links between veganism and raw food with a focus on Dugald Semple who was a Scottish fruitarian.4. Some conflicts between the health industry and vegan values.

Innes was a Visiting Professor at Korea University and other universities around the world but has moved on from academia into the study of various forms of naturopathy, the history of natural health and has focused on vegan nutrition in recent years. He has studied accupressure and chi detox massage with Amnat Kunchamnan in Chiang Mai and yoga with Dr Chintamani Gautam in Nepal.He credits natural hygiene and other forms of naturopathy with restoring his health after allopathic medicine led to health issues in childhood.He was vice president of (and archivist for) the Vegetarian Society of Australasia in Melbourne.
