(NaturalNews) Dr. George Malkmus said, "Our body is a living organism, comprised of living cells that were designed by God to be nourished exclusively with living (raw) plant-sourced foods." Is the majority of the food you eat on a daily basis living or dead? Maybe you never thought to put your food into one of those two categories but it may help you in your quest to avoid serious health problems now and in the future.

Is the majority of the food you consume in its raw natural state or has it been cooked? Raw food is living food because it still contains active enzymes (its life force sort to speak).

So what are enzymes? Enzymes are proteins that are necessary for all living organisms and they come from at least three sources: metabolic, digestive (from our body) and food enzymes (from living foods). Enzymes found in living food play a crucial role in aiding our bodies in the process of proper digestion, elimination and absorption of vital nutrients found in living food. Enzymes also help speed healing after surgery and chemotherapy, fight inflammation, help boosts our immune system as well as many other benefits.

Importance of enzymes

Dr. Edward Howell, pioneer of Enzyme Therapy said, "Enzymes are substances that make life possible...Without enzymes, no activity at all would take place. Neither vitamins, minerals nor hormones can do any work without enzymes." Living food contains their natural enzymes but when food is cooked (i.e. fried, baked, grilled, etc.) at temperatures of 107 degrees or higher, the heat destroys the enzymes thereby reducing if not eliminating the nutrient content in that food.

In reality, cooked food is dead food and is the heart of the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) that sadly many people in this and other western nations blindly adhere to like a religion. If most of the foods you eat are dead foods devoid of enzymes, they will force our body to produce more of them leading to a deficiency in other enzymes that would've been available to aid the body in its other functions such as healing and the prevention of illness.

The proper fuel

Food is fuel and dead food is a very low-grade fuel which is not capable of adequately nourishing our living bodies, comprised of living cells. How long would your car last if you continually and consistently put contaminated fuel in the gas tank? Not long at all! Our bodies were designed to run on the living foods of Genesis 1:29 yet many have forgotten or forsaken God's ideal diet for mankind. Is it then any wonder why there are so many people suffering with so many different diseases and physical problems?

In the 1930s and 40s Dr. Francis Pottenger did an experiment in which he fed 900 cats the same foods for nine years. However, half of the cats ate their food raw and the other half ate their food cooked. The cats who ate their food raw over the nine years never suffered any physical problem. But he observed that the cats that ate the cooked food developed the same physical problems many people in civilized societies suffer from and the longer the cats ate the dead/cooked food the earlier the cats experienced sickness. The evidence plainly shows that since cooked, packaged, fast foods became our S.A.D. the diseases that were primarily confined to the elderly are now found in our youth. To equip our bodies to self heal and prevent physical illness we need to fuel them with the living foods they were designed for.
