Raw Food Cancer

Cancer is a terrible disease and many people lose loved ones to this disease every year. In fact, it is one of the biggest killers in the world today along with heart disease, HIV and malaria. Many scientists over the years have been searching for a cure for this disease but to no avail.

Recent studies have shown though, that there is a perfectly natural way to fight this terrible disease called cancer. These studies have shown that people who consume a nutritious diet filled with raw foods are 80% less likely to develop cancer during their lifetime. This bodes well for people who have had cancer in their family as the disease is known to be somewhat hereditary.

How can raw foods help people to prevent cancer? Well it is basic science really. When food is cooked above 42 degrees Celsius the nutrients in the foods are destroyed much like how germs in water are destroyed once the water has been boiled above a certain level. This means that when we consume cooked foods we never get the maximum nutritional value of those foods.

People who do consume raw foods do get the maximum amount of nutritional value from the foods they consume. This is because since the food has not been heated above 42 degrees Celsius, all the nutrients are still intact and will still be absorbed by the body.

People who do not get it in as many nutrients as they should end up having nutritional deficiencies which makes them more susceptible to life threatening diseases such as cancer etc. Also, in order to cook many foods, cooking oil has to be included in the cooking process and this leads to there being more cholesterol in the food which leads to heart disease.

People who do consume raw foods do not end up with nutritional deficits. They have adequate amounts of nutrients as long as they vary the raw foods they eat and maintain a balanced diet. The result is a much stronger immune system, which is more resistant to diseases such as cancer, heart disease and other serious illnesses. Many people who have been on raw diets for a long time also report that they have never been suffered from niggling illnesses such as the flu and the common cold. Another advantage these people have is since they do not have to cook the food, they can save on the electric bill, they do not consume any cooking oils which means little to no cholesterol in their food. The benefits are endless, as long as you keep it varied!
