What Are the Best Foods for a Human to Eat?

W

Here I am quoting from a Question and Answer column printed in a respected old magazine. Question: “When eating fruit should one also eat the seeds (or some of them) so as to derive the maximum benefit from the complete fruit?” Here is the reply: What are the best foods for a human to eat? “I say to eat what instinctively tastes good to you. If seeds are distasteful, then by all...

Nutritional Values of Vegetables and Fruits

N

It is my feeling that the widest possible variety of vegetables and fruits should be used when making juices. In most cases you are trying to correct a nutritional deficiency and the wider the variety of fresh, wholesome raw vegetables and fruits you ingest, the better chance your body will have of getting the missing elements. Here I list some of nutritional values of vegetables and fruits, as...

The Green Drink — The Elixir of Life

T

I had my first ‘green drink’ in New York about 25 years ago. At the time I didn’t know what it was but I drank it anyway. Flavor-wise, I would have preferred carrot juice but in this ‘health bar’ they were serving ‘green drink’ so that is what I had. Juices were nothing new to me but the green drink somehow intrigued me, mainly because of my horticultural...

Dangers of Food Additives and Preservatives

D

At the outset I want to say to you, “Eat no food that contains any chemical food additive.” To me the word ‘additive’ is a nasty or contemptible word and here is what Webster’s Dictionary says: “Additive: a substance added to another in relatively small amounts to impart or improve desirable properties or suppress undesirable properties.” Dangers of food...

Changing to a Raw Food Diet: Do's and Don'ts

C

When changing to a raw food diet, it is seldom if ever a haphazard undertaking. You probably are sick or you have been sick. Seldom does a person decide to undertake a juice or raw food diet out of the clear blue sky. Juice, to be effective, must be made fresh and taken in that condition without any intervening delay …. you make it and you drink it immediately. This is to prevent loss of...

Does the Raw Food Diet Work? – Raw Food Experiments

D

Here I would like to give the outlines of the few raw food experiments that I came across that were conducted in various parts of the world. While these works clearly illustrate the merit and value of a raw food diet, I bemoan the fact that a full scale properly conducted and documented scientific experiment was not followed through to prove once and for all that raw food is the answer to...

Vegetarian Information: A Warning for Vegetarian

V

I am not a vegetarian but I do respect vegetarians for their philosophy and life style. The principle that they refuse to kill to eat makes good sense to me and is in keeping with my views and convictions. As you must recognize, there is a magnificent variety of good food in the vegetable kingdom. However, through the years I have observed how vegetarians eat and one thing that I do not approve...

Benefits of Raw Food: Your Life Is in Your Hands

B

I know of no human being who lived a full life, from birth to old age, on a totally raw food diet. Yes, there are tens of thousands of people who have been on a raw food diet for various periods, from a few days to many years … but I have never known an individual who was on a raw food diet from birth or who started on a raw food diet for fun and pleasure. Every person I knew who embarked...

What Is the Definition of Nutrition?

W

What is the definition of nutrition? Nutrition is the sum total of the processes involved in the taking in and the utilization of food substances by which growth, repair and maintenance of the body are accomplished. It involves ingestion, digestion, absorption and assimilation. Nutrients are stored by the body in various forms and drawn upon when the food intake is not sufficient. I have read and...

Eating Raw Foods: Can You Benefit From Raw Foods and Juices? Part 2

E

As of this moment I am involved with four individuals who were diagnosed as having cancer and they are all doing fine and getting along without any indication that they have this dread disease. I attribute this reversal to two things: a fresh juice and eating raw foods; plus the rejection of fear, which I have helped them to overcome. I have documented these cases so that they are available to...
