Cooking kills the living food nutrients
Cooking destroys the vital nutrients such as vitamins, proteins and minerals in the food. Proteins get coagulated and delaminated as is evident from the eggs and cheese when they are heated to only 118 degrees. Cooked proteins putrefy in the digestive tract and create numerous toxins such as ptomaines, leukomaines, mercaptans, indoles, skatoles, ammonias, hydrogen sulfide, putrescine, cadaverine and many more health hazards. The affected proteins enter the blood stream, kill our immune system and cause numerous diseases.
Research conducted by the prestigious National Academy of Science's National Research Council and published in its book "Diet, Nutrition and Cancer," categorically states that fire cooking generates mutagens and carcinogens in foods. Cooking destroys vitamins and minerals which lose their organic nature. Burnt out proteins combine wit saturated fats and cholesterol in the circulatory system and choke it up with cement like plaque. Over 90% Americans have plaque in their arteries which causes numerous cardiac and other problems.
