Brother, I love u too, but the biggest pet peeve that I have is when people mistakingly label this kind of information as "wrongful" simply because it is information that is not commonly accepted by the medical profession or Western science, and for a good reason. This is the kind of information that keeps people from relying on medications and doctors for the rest of their lives. One point that we do agree on is that what I've offered thus far is definitely not medical advice, but life-givng advice. Medical advice is given to turn people into "patients," who are forever reliant upon doctors for the maintenace of their health, like a junkie or an addict. Life-giving advice, however, is given to empower people by making them responsible and accountable for the way they take care of bodies.
quote:It just implies that we as a more developed and TOOL-using species in conjunction with our opposable thumbs afforded us the ability to develop the science (and art) of cooking.
The cooked food diet is the single most destructive diet. Compared to raw foods, cooked food lacks nutritional value and enzymes. Consequently, the endocrine glands try to compensate for enzyme-lacking food. The endoctrine gland chain becomes overstimulated which results in large increases in body weight. Additionally, cooked food causes a rise in organ temperature. The constant demand on digestive organs to try to metabolize cooked foods and drugs (which are also cooked) causes thermal fatigue. This indicates that the organs are getting weaker as they are getting larger. The United Nations World Health Organization has compiled data which indicates that 97 percent of primary cancers start at thermal fatigue organs such as the genitals due to cooked and OVERCOOKED food. Many African-Americans like to cook their foods literally to death, particularly their greens, not realizing that they are cooking the nutritional value right out of their foods. Further, most people are unaware about the risks of food combining. For example, animal flesh requires an acid for digestion. These acids are destroyed by carbohydrates and fruits. Subsequently, the animal flesh is not properly digested and the carbohydrates (starches) are not properly digested, which is why you should never mix starches with meat, yet how many times have we seen people at family gatherings eating barbecue ribs with macaroni and cheese. Also, you should never mix sugars (honey, molasses, etc.) with starches. The sugar burns quicker than the starches. The heat the sugars generate causes the starches to putrefy (rot) before they can be properly digested.
quote:Digested food usually does not stay in the body for longer than 24 hours, not 3 days.
A 24 hour digestion period is possible under normal cirumstances, but considering the typical American diet, it's not uncommon for people to go more than three days without having a bowel movement, leaving rotting food to remain in the stomach. Listening to a radio program, one guy recently called in to tell a popular health program's host that he hadn't had a bowel movement in a week! So in your explanation, you're completely ignoring the American public's health ignorance and regular eating habits.
quote:As for the safety of plant-based foods, as these are not regulated, how do we know that these are trully safe...are we sure that there are no fungal spores or bacterial spores on the plant material especially after using organic manure? Time will tell...
Unfortunately, considering American's high fat/meat and low vegatable diet, time is already telling us about the dangers of that kind of diet.
