Jacqueline Alnes was fit and healthy until one day she collapsed. That was the start of it. Her search for answers took her down a rabbit-hole of disordered eating that led to the Fruitarian movement where eating 30 bananas or 20 mangoes a day was considered 'treatment'.

So how does anyone get swept up in such a strange and dangerous movement? Guest host Kate Langbroek finds out in this episode of No Filter.
