Are fruits and veggies dead or alive??
I'm wondering (i clearly have too much time on my hands) whether or not fruits and vegetables are "alive" in the sense that there is some kind of cellular activity while we are eating them? I think some nuts/seeds are alive in the sense that they are "dormant" and come alive/sprout at a later time.
But what about fruits and vegetables? Do they die the minute they are picked? And i don't mean "life force" or something intangible like that, i mean real, literal activity in the cells of the food which you could see under a microscope.
Or are they just plain "dead"? I don't have any reason for this question other than sheer curiosity.....
