RE: [fukuoka_farming] foliar vegetarianism??
- I've heard a lot about these folks. They're usually called
"instinctos". The official name for the notions behind the diet
is anopsology, invented by a Frenchman named Guy-Claude Burger.
There is a lot of controversy surrounding it nowadays, because
Burger has been accused of some sort of sex crime against
children (some say such activities are part of his philosophy).
