I think the 100% raw vegan is a niche market for very few people. At least we have moved away from the older style failed model where you just go and buy fruit and raw vegies from the shops and everything will be fine. There was no mention of the importance of greens in the past. It never worked well because most of the people I saw ( including myself ) never seemed to be satisfied irrespective of how much raw fruit and raw vegies they ate so they either got stuck into bags and bags of nuts and dried fruit afterwards, or in the end they usually went and bought a vegetarian pizza or salty / savoury foods they really needed to satisfy themselves with - after they had already over overeaten.

At least now people are adding greens and in some cases marine based plants as well as sea salt. Salt was considered a poison in the old style raw model.

Also, there is an emphasis on growing your own foods in good soil, so rather than pointing to Chimps and Bonobos people have looked at the reality of why people were failing on raw and trying to do something about it - rather than just saying like Doug did, '' all animals in the wild eat raw, so why should we be any different '', or ' your detoxing, just be patient ' while in reality they were just wasting away from a poorly constructed raw diet.

Good on the people who are trying.
