Why Eat Raw Food?

Archived Article

Enzymes are actually very fragile and excessive light, pressure or heat will kill 100 percent of the enzymes in the food.  Cooking foods leads to enzyme under nutrition.  Our own reserve of enzymes can be used for either digestion or metabolism but gets rapidly depleted by digestion when enzyme devoid cooked foods are consumed.  However, if enzyme reinforcements are consumed through raw foods or supplements our own reserve of enzymes remain intact ready and available to be used as metabolic enzymes.   Therefore, to live a healthy long life and to preserve our supply of enzymes it is essential for us to have a good amount of raw natural foods in our diet, I recommend a minimum of at least 50% raw food.

Human beings are the only species that cook their foods depleting it of precious Enzymes that the body requires.  Wild animals don’t suffer from obesity, diabetes, arthritis or cancer but domesticated cats and dogs do if they are fed on man-made cooked foods.  As human being we also had to implement cooking utensils such as knifes to cut the flesh of animals because our teeth were not naturally designed in a way to tear through the hide and skins of our chosen prey.  I think if we were designed to cook our foods we would have been created with an ability to naturally heat food to ensure our chances of survival and if we were designed to eat large amounts of meats we would have been given canine teeth designed for tearing into the flesh of our prey.

A good way to asses the laws of nature is to reflect on the natural diets of wild animals and the anatomy of their teeth:

Why Eat Raw Food?

Elephants
Most wild elephants spend 18-20 hours per day eating between 300-500 pounds of bark, shoots, leaves, tree foliage, grass, twigs and fruits washed down with a massive 50 gallons of water.
This gigantic vegetarians can weigh anything up to 7 tons , they are equipped with two tusks for turning up dirt , uprooting vegetation and as a means of defense and have an additional 24 molar teeth designed for grinding and crushing their vegetarian foods.

Lions
Wild lions spend 16-20 hours a day sleeping and the remaining time to hunting wildebeests, rhinos, giraffes, zebras, hippos, tortoises, lizards, warthogs and any other available walking meat. They obtain nutrients by eating the stomach contents of the prey that they feast on. Their teeth consist of canines for ripping into flesh, carnassal teeth which work like scissors and Conical teeth designed for cutting and tearing, even their tongues help to scrape meat from bone.

Gorillas
Wild gorillas can weigh anything up to 180Kg and consume up to 50 pounds of food each day primarily consisting of leaves, fruits, seeds, bark, shoots, flowers, termites and ants. An adult gorilla has about 32 teeth most of which are molars (same as humans)designed for grinding and chewing a plant based diet with big sharp canines at the front for protection.

Humans
As humans beings we eat all types of foods, raw, cooked, processed, packaged, fast food, plant foods, meat’s and dairy. We have 32 teeth, relatively blunted incisors at the front for biting and cutting chunks from vegetables and fruits, canine teeth for tearing or shredding and the rest are molars and premolars for grinding, chewing and crushing vegetation, grains and seeds.

Horses
Wild horses feed on whatever vegetation they can find, usually consisting of grass, wild grains, leaves, bark, herbs and vegetables. A horses teeth consists mainly of molars and premolars for grinding and crushing and incisors for grasping or biting food, the jaw of a horse moves in a circular motion which assists with the grinding process.
