This fact of modern life never fails to amuse me: it is totally acceptable and seems perfectly OK to eat a diet of atrocious burgers, chips and colas, but it is considered ‘strange’ and not OK to eat a diet of organic oranges and apples?

I hear what you are saying: I don’t eat fast food or drink sodas?? It doesn’t really matter, simply because eating any cooked food is of an equally atrocious behaviour.

It goes to show how the values of our society are inverted. A good friend of mine once said to me “I’ve just been to the doctor and he told me I was OK!” I was thinking to myself: What does the doctor know? In Natural Health, doctors are called allopath for a reason: they are trained to treat diseases, not to prevent them.

You may show no symptoms as of today, but there’s nothing doctors can do to prevent you from being sick tomorrow. Just another fine example of how much our society’s values are inverted: the medical profession’s only job is to treat symptoms by giving you deadly drugs. Nothing the doctor does will cure you because the cause of the disease still remains.

I have to keep emphasising that nothing will harm you if you eat raw food in a way that you won’t get sick; on the other hand, many bad things will happen to you if you stick to the traditional diet. Simply because it is eating most cooked food that makes you sick.

It freaks me out when people who know me think that I am on a mission to “transform them” to change to a raw food diet. As if I was into some kind of Raw Food crusade to transform the world. If this is what you think, you are completely wrong.

For the sake of this argument, consider this: maybe someone has already transformed you?? The truth is that you have been brainwashed since birth by tradition and commerce. We are not born to eat cooked food- have you ever seen a baby when they are first introduced to cooked food? They don’t like it. Watch the same baby eat fruit for the first time- they love it!

My only job is to guide the public back to nature and expose people to the best possible quality of life, all backed up by solid science and good old common sense.
