Dr. D et al,

I realize this is probably not the best forum for this discussion. In fact I was led to your website and example precisely because there was there something about NFL that 'just didn't seem right'. But if these presumably well-spoken, intelligent folks at NFL can lie and deceive so easily, and worse refuse to acknowledge it when it's so clear they have been caught. Then how can we trust ANY information that raw foodists present?

My guestion is more an act of frustration than any serious endictment of this movement. I see more tenants of the raw food movement argued on the bases on logic (and 'common sense') than on scientific research. But where's the logic and the common sense in refusing to admit you've stolen someone else's work and research? I do academic research and I am very sensitive to this issue. I certainly won't speak for every raw foodist, but I am very easy-going and tolerant and would, in actual fact, forgive these guys for coming forward. But since they haven't, I've been seriously questioning my decision to follow such an extreme diet. We are what we eat...and I just feel that I'd rather suffer the consequences of eating cooked food than continue swallowing the crap that NLF has been dishing out.

Dr. D - Thank you for continuing to be a great example for me (and I hope all of us). There's no doubt that more "objective truth seekers" (Arlin) will find their way to your website and to your rather fine take on raw food and excersise. For I have faith the Dr. D & Roz are not only consistent and great human beings, but that they truly are what they eat.
