Raw food diets have become trendy in recent years, with hip raw cafés opening up in stylish neighborhoods throughout the U.S. and the world. Ironically, though, even as young “hipsters” frequent such establishments, the raw diet itself is one of the most ancient ways of eating you could find − just think of early man foraging the land for raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. According to our guest today, Susan Smith Jones, PhD, our bodies originally evolved with a diet that was totally unprocessed and uncooked.
So, what exactly is a “raw” food or a “living” food? How high can a food be heated and still considered raw? Are there benefits or risks to a raw food diet? In this show, Dr. Susan will answer questions about all of the raw diet basics. In addition, for those who are already following or are familiar with a raw diet, she’ll share the latest, eye-opening research on the topic.
