So many of the health related sites I visit or people I meet are really hung up on the all-raw diet issue. As if we are trying to figure out the ONE diet for everybody. Everybody is different. Like Daniel Quinn suggests, there’s NO ONE RIGHT diet.
Anyway, here’s my spiel about raw foods:
Humans have had fire since before we were human. Chinese medicine (thousands of year old) largely frowns on raw foods. Hundreds of thousands of traditional and indigenous cultures throughout ALL of human history (and long before) have eaten cooked food. Humans are also diverse and adaptable and some people are able to really thrive on all raw food. Considering these facts, I’m personally bored by hearing the all raw or not debate.
Eat what makes you and future generations healthy and happy.
