Regarding raw diet
What do you think of the mainstream theory about man becoming more intelligent and civilized after learning to cook food, due to the ability to digest nutrients from cooked food better and have a better nourished brain?
Also, some traditional herbal medicines don't release their therapeutic form of saponins unless they are cooked and processed in a certain way, like with he shou wu and red ginseng.
They also claim that due to eating meat man's brain became more developed. Its hard to say what is true, all I know is that man in all civilized areas of the world eathing lots of grains and meat has not been healthy.
FIsh is healthier than grains, though these days so many waters have heavy metals in them that much fish can cause heavy metal poisoning such as lead and especially mercury.
Its not about belief, its about science. Examine our teeth, eyes, digestive tract. What do the most resemble, what are they furthest from? They are furthest from meat eating animals and they are closest to fruit eating animals.
Where do you get your iron source from raw food diet, eating only salads and fruits?
