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.

@ernst Maybe it is more to do with protein in general. As sufficient protein is needed to maintain powerful dopamine levels in the brain and keep blood sugar balanced. And animal meat is not the only source of protein.

Also eating a wider variety within the daily diet is supposed to help the brain evolve and advance in society.

But there do seem to be some foods that are enhanced or altered by cooking, such as kale, etc.

I'm not sure what to believe anymore.

Perhaps advanced prosperous societies ate lots of fish, as most flourishing civilizations developed near rivers. DHA for the brain. But fish aren't the only source of that?

In India, fish is eaten very frequently by Bengalis, a general notion is they are very talented.

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?
