Isn't Raw Food Redundant?
It's the 2010's and we're in the high tech ipod Android age. Everyone is on the net and spends their entire day tweeting and blogging. Sure I am doing this too, but sometimes we miss things.
For example the term raw food is kind of popular in certain circles these days. Any health minded person seems to at least have an idea what raw food is and what it is supposed to do.
I thought about this for a few minutes and realized that the term is really redundant. Raw food, is really the term used for food. Anything that is not raw is not really food.
The term is used to mean food that has not been cooked. Is cooked food really still food? According the famous doctor, Paul Kouchakoff, the human body rejects any food that has been heated above some certain temperature.
Our body creates a stream of white blood cells to attack the incoming invader when food that was heated is eaten. This does not happen when we eat foods that are not heated.
This is a clear indication that our body knows what is food and what is not food. If we eat a bag of rocks the body will react to this the exact same way, there will be a sea of white blood cells sent out to destroy the invader.
Eventhough most people eat tons of cooked and processed foods they don't realize that none of it is really food...the only real food is raw food.
The entire world of life only consumes food in it's untouched natural state. Calling it raw is really redundant, of course it is raw!
The only exception to this is the one foolish species that continues to destroy itself and it's home along with every other species that tries to coexist with it.
Anything that is not raw is not food. Accept this and you will thrive, deny it and you will be like everyone else and muddle through life hating yourself and the world.
