Why do so many of the core Raw reads quote research from 1930 and before? It is typical of what I have found so far. Is there just so little work being done now? Are rawfoodists just so incredibly relaxed by the diet that they just don’t seek scientific research to support it? Is it because the only real research money is in processed foods? Why do these old studies and actions keep being quoted? It makes the whole thing feel so questionable, like is that the best we can do? Does modern research deny that we “run out of enzymes and only have a limited supply”?
Wiki on Raw Food
I am still hopefully looking. I am sure there is a ton more out there and I just haven’t got through enough of the popular raw food books (where I want to start) in order to dig down deeper into research journals.
Close to many rawfoodists are the low cal high nutrient efforts. There have been some recent popular news articles, one in the New York Times, click here and one in Scotland:
Is 2500 Calories Too Much? – you may be interested to know that Scotland have just “officially” lowered their daily recommendations. The new allowances are 1600 for women and 2000 for men.
And medical news today has an article about low cal diets positive affect on Alzheimers.
