Raw Food Diet ScepticMore studies today are revealing that raw foods are better for you than cooked.  However, it is extremely difficult for even the most conscious health food consumer to get the right nutrients each day from an all-raw diet.

First, it is important to understand why raw foods are best for your health.  Most obviously, in addition to the formation of toxic byproducts, cooking food depletes valuable nutrients.  For example, raw milk is more beneficial in its raw state than after pasteurization.  With raw milk, the body is able to easily absorb the calcium, but after it is pasteurized, the enzymes that aid in absorption are destroyed.  Then, the excess calcium that is not absorbed ends up in joints, ...

CookiesYou've probably heard this before, “Those cookies are addictive”.  A new study suggests that foods loaded with bad carbohydrates, like processed sugar, really are addictive.  Researchers found that foods high in sugar can produce the same responses in the brain as addictive drugs like heroin and cocaine.

Dr. Mark Hyman, appearing on CBS This Morning, says that sugary foods like cupcakes, cookies, pies and candy trigger reward centers in the brain.  In the way that certain drugs light up
