Did you know that according to many recognized doctors, biologists and anthropologists, the man is not a carnivore, but a special kind of omnivore, designed for consumption of fruits, nuts, berries, grains, seeds, root and leafy vegetables?
Humans are special kinds of omnivores because of their body building. Carnivores have teeth for biting the food, not for chewing. They have paws for holding the prey. Small intestine is short, because meat is very toxic and has to be released fast. They sleep 12-16 hours a day, because they spend all energy on digesting the proteins and eventually they have the need to hunt. Omnivores are built with teeth for chewing the food and their jaws move to the sides (carnivores' jaws move only up and down), they don't have paws, small intestine is long for proper digestion of plant-based diet and they sleep 6-8 hours.
Still not convinced of benefits of raw food diet?
Heat treatment of the food changes the structure of the nutrients (destroys some vitamins and enzymes, at a temperature of 104 F/40 ° C they are completely destroyed), it also changes the structure of the organic minerals, proteins, fats – mainly polyunsaturated.
And what is worse, cooking at high temperatures many times leads to releasing harmful substances. Having said that, it is extremely useful to add to the cooked meal a high proportion of the raw food, for example a salad as an appetizer.
Our body needs food that is alive so if you want to eat between meals, eat fresh fruit or vegetables, not cookies or potato chips that have a zero nutritional value. Remember, only living things can give life. For example cookies bought from a store are made of bleached white flour and sugar that will steal calcium from your bones and will make you dependent on large quantities of sugar.
Then it cools your body, makes it acidic and possibly creates cancer, diabetes and other known diseases. These cookies also contain emulsifiers, various powders, stabilizers and flavor enhancers. Nothing alive.
Cooked food is not a poison that kills immediately. But it gradually overloads the functions of various organs and processes in our bodies with accumulated waste. Heat treatment is radically changing the chemical structure of food. Fats oxidize and produce highly dangerous mixture, such as trans-fatty acids, free radicals and other toxic hydrocarbons. Enzymes are destroyed and the body must use its own reserves to digest food and remove impurities. Minerals and vitamins are slowly converted to inorganic, toxic chemicals or useless structures.
Let's say, you take a piece of broccoli. Boil it for 15 minutes, take it out, look at it and taste it. Then take another piece of broccoli and steam it for 2-3 minutes. Eventually you can take a piece of raw broccoli and just eat it. Think about the broccoli as the source of energy, vitamins and life. Which one had the most life in it and which one tasted and looked the best?
