the data on benefits of RAW FOOD . . . part 1 of 3

In the next few blogs, I’ll review for you research on the benefits of raw plant food I found in various sources.   Unfortunately, science isn’t too interested in studying the effects of people eating raw food.   Who would fund large-scale prevention studies to document what happens when we don’t tax our enzyme production […]

how life changed when we switched to whole foods . . . part 1 of 2
