I was at Brigham Young University ‘s Education Week most of this week, with my gorgeous sister and two favorite cousins.   (That’s saying a lot about how cool Rochelle and Quinn are, since I have 48 first cousins and they all rock out loud.) I got to see a few GSG readers here from […]

Do we need to take enzymes when eating a completely raw meal?

I’m a little confused on this point.   If the meal is completely raw, is it correct that all the enzymes we need to digest are in the food itself, and we don’t need to take anything else?

Dried Fruits & Enzymes

Hey Robyn, When purchasing  dried organic fruit from Azure Standard or similar sites, do the dried fruits still have all the enzymes intact? Is the drying process above 115 degrees? What’s the bottom line? Thanks!!!

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

the data on benefits of RAW FOOD . . . part 2 of 3

Another very old study was the work of Robert McCarrison in the 1920′s and 1930′s, working with rats.   A group of 1,000 rats was fed a partially raw diet of carrots, sprouts, cabbage, bread, milk, and meat.   Another 2,000 were fed canned food, boiled vegetables, and milk.     The rats in the […]

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 […]
