Raw Foods - Separating Myths from Reality
Today we hear from registered dietitian Brenda Davis - with the truth about the raw food diet.
Have you ever heard a raw or high-raw "guru" claiming that certain research proves the superiority of the raw diet? Or proves the critical importance of enzymes in "live food?"
Well Brenda Davis heard these and other assertions by raw gurus. She paid attention to the studies these gurus point to in order to back up their positions. Next, Brenda personally contacted all the reserarchers who did the studies being cited - and in every case the researchers were shocked to hear their findings had been twisted and misinterpreted by these raw gurus.
Raw foods have many good qualities, but there's a ton of nonsense out in the raw food world.
In this full one-hour talk, Brenda Davis explodes myths, breaks it down, and shares what is currently known on the subject of raw foods.
