Eating is drinking. I do not eat foods that are not at least 80 percent water content. If you eat dried foods, the body borrows water from the cells, process the food, and then later when you drink, the body has to process the water and redistribute it, that is more work. I do drink simple water, but not as much, my body has enough organic water already. Animals in the wild feeding on raw foods

powerlifer my dear raw friend, water is not just water. The reason why beans, dried grains are not good foods is that they have lost there organic water content during the drying process. Eating them dried and drink water afterward to compensate will never equal the health benefits of eating them in thier original raw state. We are 80 percent water at a mininum. That is why dried powder superf

dehydrated powders have very poor nutritional values, for one thing they do not have the organic water we have in natural fresh produce, another is that being concentrated is the problem, you are overloading your system with nutrients of one type. Nutrition is not complicated.

Most people are so focused on the nutrients, the most important thing is getting the body to assimilate the nutrients, our local ordinary foods have enough nutrients, we are actually overloaded with nutrients, the problem is that they are not getting assimilated, so here less is actually better, simple food, avoid mixing to many food items, eat less, fast regulary, give your system a rest.

How do these heavy metals get into one body and not into another besides being close to a nuclear plant. Is it thru food, direct contact, or some are born with the metals. What can we do to protect ourselves? take medicine periodically?

You are missing the title of the thread " Crying Onion Tears: do we really need to be worried about onions?" The medicinal properties of these "foods" are more dominant than their nutritional properties, why do you think people cry eating garlic or onions, they are medicine, you decide to suffer for a while to cure a condition. Have seen people eating banana with tears i

Garlics and Onions are only good to move the body from the state of disequilibrium to equilibrium, once you have achieved the natural state, should I say re-establish the natural state, they have no place in the diet. Would you keep taking tylenol to cure a headache you no longer have?

powerlifer my friend, I drink juices and eat fruits. That is my diet, with two days of water or dry fasting per week. I drink green leave juices in the morning and can take a papaya or some mangoes, pineaple with me for lunch at work (no black pepper). What did you had for lunch today, I get asked sometimes and the answer is simple, pineapple or papaya. My juices all have celery at the

Adding black pepper to food is not observed in pure nature. Some rawfoodists need b12 injection. Very strange.

We have lost our natural senses of harmony. You do not need to be a monkey to know that. Nature has harmony, equilibrium, we need to return to that simplicity and it is not black pepper that can help do that.

When a monkey found some ripe bananas in the wild he is naturally drawn to them and seat and eat until he is full and goes to sleep. He is guided by his natural senses and there is an harmony between his needs and the messages the ripe bananas are broadcasting to be found. He will stop when he is full and does not need to add any other substance or food to the bananas. He does not need some study

Is it just finding the study, seeing the study online, what is the research methodology? Yes I found this study so it must be true???????????? It is not just black or white, there are conflicting studies, you need to read closely, compare, make judgements Most studies are rejected because improper research and testing methologies.

Boy, I do not believe in mainstream studies? When did I say that. I am a scientist by education and profession (Phd). I can provide pages of arguments links to back up my statements but most of the points here in the forum are dealing just with simple common sense. Why would a ripe mango suddenly be more disgestible because we added a foreign substance such as black pepper. The mango has t

pborst You are missing the message, this is a raw food forum, did you forget? Who care what pepper indians were putting in their COOKINGS? No amount of studies will make me use spices to improve cooked food absorption. Most cooked foods are not properly combined so you need assitance with absorption. Why would I need a little pepper on sliced of ripe mangoes or on green leaves or carrot jui

Did you provide any data that shows that black pepper increase nutrient absorption, you did not. For one thing black pepper is dried, it will take away from the water in the food I am eating, reduce the water content, it is another substance with its own hour of digestion which may not be the same as that of the orange of pineapple I am eating. It may be helpful for foods like pizza or pie whic

The external help for nutrition absorption is only required when the food is not digestible by itself in the first place. What this does is to keep us with the old habits of consuming food not digestible, I will have that pizza or pie with black pepper to help me push it down. There was a scientific paper to back me up on that. Foods that are digestible do not need external help, they are
