We have eaten uncooked food for millennia. It is only recently however that cooking food has become the norm. Look at all the animals in nature. Do they eat cooked food?No they do not and do they suffer for it?No.
The primary reason for the shift to cooked food was the belief that cooking killed off microbes. So people began cooking their apples, tomatoes, just about everything they ate.
The reality is however that microbes will only set up shop where there is an environment for them to thrive.If we eat cooked food then this toxic environment exists. Take it away with a raw food diet and the microbes will go too.
The process of cooking allows food to bypass the sensory safeguards we have. I challenge you to take a piece of raw meat and give it to a big meat eater and tell then to eat it. I bet you they won’t.
The body treats cooked food like a toxin to be destroyed as white blood cells are deployed to do the job. Heated food is nutritionally inferior so people eat more of it and this leads to obesity.
