Welcome to the category of my blog simply called ‘Healthy Tips.’ Many times, when I write articles for various publications, I need to find sources for the story as seen in Yahoo Shine (click here) or PBS (click here) about staying healthy. I was looking for experts and non-experts to chime in and give their favorite ‘tips’ to help kids and adults lead a healthy lifestyle.
The feedback for various stories was amazing. The sources had some fantastic points of view that could not be ignored, and I thought their opinions should be viewed on the Your Health Journal web site.
So, enjoy my new series, with some ‘great’ insight from some ‘great’ people giving exceptional and educational points of view.
Eat a high raw diet, including salads, fruits, nuts, seeds, and very very lightly cooked eggs and meat. When you eat cooked food, your pancreas has to crank out digestive enzymes, whereas when you eat raw, the enzymes are there, in the food, to help digest it. This constant taxing of the pancreas shortens your life, and makes you have a lot less energy while you are alive! Dr. Edward Howell, who spent his life researching this, claims that your life span is indirectly proportional to the amount of cooked food you eat—in other words, the more cooked food you eat, the sooner you will die! There are also plenty of toxic byproducts in cooked food that contribute to this, including heterocyclic amines, acrylamides, and lipid peroxides. My book The Live Food Factor includes 66 scientific studies showing the superiority of a raw diet.”
