Hi Lurker, after meeting Lou COrona and Brian Clement, I became a believer in the high raw diet. I cook herbs, so I will never be 100% raw, but I do respect the science that Brian says about the immune system...that if you want a fully functioning immune system, don't go below 75% raw. Anyway, Ann Wigmore was pretty awesome. isn't she a good enough example of the amazing properties of a raw vegan diet?

My biggest mentor has been Tom Rodgers, who is dirt poor, and he has taught me so much about how simple principles can keep someone healthy as a True vegan. He was dying over 20 years ago and his diseases went away by just being vegan and his concern has always been that when people push 100% raw in the vegan world that this pushes people into raw animal foods eventually. It's not absolute, but I have seen almost all my raw vegan friends eventually eat raw cheeese, raw eggs, raw sushi, etc and get sick, because raw animal foods usually carry nasty pathogens. Even Dan McDonald does bee products in order to stay all raw. One of my colon hydrotherapy teachers helped a man dying from some kind of disease he got from eating raw meat on one of those instinctive raw diets. Then one of my raw vegan friends started eat raw salmon and got a persistent pinworm infection.

So my friend Tom just teaches the principles of a vegan diet and doesn't trouble people with any percentages of raw, unless they are suffering from an acute sickness. This is similar to John McDougall's approach.

Lurker, Sproutarian gave me the final push I needed to go back to a high raw sprout-culture diet. He was the missing link for me. I was doing Lou Corona's diet and feeling great, especially with cultured sesame yogurt but I got distracted. Now I have more understanding that it was all those vitamins that were making me feel so amazing. Sproutarian digs into the nitty gritty of vitamins and minerals. So, now that I understand, I would be an idiot to ignore it any longer.
