Found this article:
Interesting article, goes into depth on many points, some of the conclusions aren't based on good evidence though.
It's a long read though so be prepared!!!
I find it interesting that no culture eats 100% raw.
And when comparing the food pyramids, they are very similar.
Also interesting that the longest living culture of today eats some cooked food, consumes some alcohol, and eats a little meat and cooked grains.
I was wondering if somebody could direct me to articles that somewhat prove that a 100% raw diet is the best thing for people.
I am having my doubts. Wouldn't there be a limit on how many raw enzymes are needed, how many phytonutrients, etc in the diet.
I notice that the number one way to uncook is using a blender. How long has a blender been in the human evolution process?
How would people made almond milk 1000 years ago, and what civilization made it??
Also, how did people eat flax seeds if you need to crush them?? Did they know this, and if so did they use stones to crush them??
Just some questions of thought. I do believe that a certain amount of raw produce is healthy everyday, i'm not questioning that at all.
I usually eat 5 pieces of raw fruit, 4 servings of raw veggies, and some raw nuts,4-5 dates and raisins everyday.
Just really wondering if the 100% raw goal is a good goal, since it is unnatural to eat 100%.
In fact many indoor animals like cats can live longer eating cooked processed high quality cat food, compared to outdoor wild cats that have to catch food for themselves.
Please help, I need direction. Thanks.
