Unformatted text preview: Why All Should Eat Only Raw J<'oodsAlways by Dr. Bernarr, D.C., D.O. When food is cooked above 118 degrees F for three minutes or longer, its protein has become coagulated, its sugar has become caramelized, its nature fibers have been broken down, which means it will take longer to move throu~ the intestinal tract, 30% to 50% of its vitamins and minerals have been destroyed and 100% of its enzymes have been destroyed. Cooked food depletes our body's enzyme potential and drains the energy we need to maintain and repair our tissues and organ systems and shortens our lifespan Dr. Virginia Vetrano writes about an authority who contends that irritation fror putting extremely hot foods into the stomach, can cause cancer. Dr. Vetranc also writes that "Heating any food, destroys much of its vitamin, mineral, anc protein content and poisonous inorganic acids are formed. The all uncooked d is most healthful." Marilyn Willison, of Hippocrates Health Institute, writes, "We should not cook c food. During this apparently harmless process, vital enzymes are destroyed, proteins are coagulated (making them difficult to assimilate), vitamins are mos destroyed with the remainder changing into forms that are difficult for the bod to utilize, pesticides are restructured into even more toxic compounds, valuab oxygen is lost, and free radicals are produced. According to Viktoras Kulvinskas, nutrient losses can be as high as 80% or more. Other studies suggest that cooked proteins (coagulated) are up to 50~ less likely to be utilized by the body." Dr. Francis M. PottengerJr., wrote about his experiments with 900 cats over; period of ten years. Pottenger fed some of the test cats raw meat and other te cats, he fed cooked meats. Pottenger wrote, "Cooked meat fed cats were irritable. The females were dangerous to handle, occasionally biting the keeper ..." The cooked meat fed cats suffered with "pneumonia, empyema, diarrhea, osteomyelitis, cardiac lesions, hyperopia and myopia (eye diseases thyroid diseases, nephritis, orchitis, oophoritis (ovarian inflammation), arthriti: and many other degenerative diseases." No cooked food is benign. Cooked foods act malignantly by exhausting your bodily energies, inhibiting your healing, and decreasing your alertness, efficiency and productivity. Cooked foods suppress the immune system. the heat of cooking destroys '. . .. vitaminS, enzymes, mineralS, nUCleiCaClas, cnloropnyll, ana aamages rats, making them indigestible. The fatty matter becomes a local irritant. The heal disorganizes the protein structure, leading to deficiency of some of the essent amino acids. The fibrous or woody element of food (cellulose) is changed completely from its natural condition by cooking. When this fibrous element i!...
