My story in a coconutshell:

HELLO my name is Ted Carr and I was born n’ raised in Vancouver BC, Canada.

I started the raw food diet in 2009 because I was desperate for help to cure my ‘incurable acne’ and NOTHING I tried or spent a lot of money on worked. THEN I found fruitarianism AKA Low fat, raw veganism. I read a bunch of books, took action, and within 2 weeks my skin totally cleared up – NO MORE ACNE EVER SINCE.

Emergence Community Arts Collective is scheduled to hold its third annual “Raw Food Festival” at 733 Euclid St. NW from 3:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday.

“The event that aims to promote raw food in the D.C. area, its health benefits, environmental advantages, its fantastic taste,” spokeswoman Margaux Delotte-Bennett said.

The festival is broken down into three sections: uncooked vegetable and fruit tastings, the benefits of a raw food diet and fitness and gardening.

The event will have five talks on the health benefits of raw food and how to properly prepare it. There’s also an Afro-Brazilian martial art demonstration from the International Capoeira Angola Foundation.

Guests can vote on their favorite juice, sweet and savory foods and enter raffles for classes and dinners prepared by chefs, who cook raw vegan dishes, too.

International Raw Food Day: What Does a Raw Food Diet Really … – NDTV

11th July is celebrated every day as the International Raw Food Day. It is a day dedicated to spreading awareness about the benefits of raw food consumption. It also helps highlight its long term advantages for our health. The 21st century has seen a rapid increase in the trend of fast food and other processed foods that have led to the increase in obesity levels and other non-communicable diseases like cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, hypertension, etc. In the wake of such trends catching up, health experts point at the emergent need to go back to the basics, to turn to nature and turn to into a raw food enthusiast.

So what exactly is raw foodism and where can we trace back its origins? The history of raw food consumption – as a dietary and health movement- can be traced back to 1830 when an American Presbyterian minister Sylvester Graham propagated the benefits of raw food diet to combat the cholera epidemic that the country was grappling with. Apparently, the Swiss would take away the credit for being amongst the first to develop raw food as a dietary health treatment. In the late 19th century, a Swiss doctor, Maximilian Bircher Benner stumbled upon the benefits of raw food diet. It was when he was suffering from jaundice that he ate a lot of raw apples and after his recovery he conducted experiments to study the effects of raw foods on human health and the immune system.

Shifting gears to the contemporary scenario now, raw food diets have been rapidly gaining popularity all across the world. From raw food movements like raw foodism and raw veganism to special raw juice camps held in places like Portugal. Raw food, simply speaking, is food that has not been cooked, processed or exposed to any kind of chemicals or food engineering. It is consumed in its rawest and freshest form, technically, it is food that is not cooked or heated above 118 degrees. The thrust of the raw food diet is the consumption of unprocessed, whole plant-based, ideally organic foods. Nutritionists suggest that a minimum of three-quarters of a person’s diet should consist of uncooked food. The higher the proportion of raw foods in our diet, the healthier we will be.

Why is raw food beneficial for one’s health? Experts and researchers in the field of health and nutrition have long stood by the benefits of raw food consumption. It is believed that just a little raw food in your diet can do wonders to your health. Raw food consumption can be an ideal way to get your daily quota of five portions of fruit and vegetables. It can help you get rid of stress, energizing your mind and body. Raw foods are full of essential nutrients, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, which are usually lost when processed or cooked. Not only this, raw foods are tad low on calories, they can help you maintain healthy skin, lustrous hair, better eyesight and can also help you boost your immunity and shed weight.(More: Busted! Common myths about raw food consumption.)

 

As they say, every good thing has a flip side to it, so does the raw food diet. Experts advise to exercise a little caution while consuming raw foods. Make sure that the foods and fruits are fresh. Wash them properly and if needed boil them. Do not use foods that have been stored for a long period of time. Take notice of the slightest of change in the natural colour or smell of the food. Ensure proper storage. Maintaining hygiene is of the utmost importance.
 
In India raw food consumption has not yet picked up as a trend. There are many factors that we can point to, the most important ones are poor hygiene and our extreme weather conditions. I personally remember the instance when I had consumed sliced raw cucumber from a local shop and ended up throwing up for a couple of days. Eating raw foods from the local shops can prove to be quite a daunting experience, as you never really know what kind of water is being used, how clean the cutlery is and above all, how hygiene friendly they themselves have been while handing over that plate of fruit salad to you. It is best to buy food items and make your own salads, smoothies and chaats at home, make sure that they are cleaned and washed properly.

Having said that, whether you plan to include a little raw food in your daily intake or want to be that dauntless enthusiast to plunge headlong into a full fledged raw food diet, we can ensure that you’ll never run short of recipe ideas. One of the best things about raw food is that you can cut them, mix them together with a bit of spices and herbs and add a little glamour to the otherwise bland affair. Read ahead to explore your options, from garden fresh salads to refreshing smoothies, here is our bumper list of recipes that will make you fall in love with raw food. Forget your cola and junk and get down to some serious raw food cooking!

Raw Food Warning: Why Uncooked Flour Can Make You Sick – Live Science

Raw Food Warning: Why Uncooked Flour Can Make You Sick
Credit: eldar nurkovic/Shutterstock.com

The Food and Drug Administration recently made a perhaps surprising recommendation: Don’t eat raw flour.

The warning issued last week came in response to an outbreak of E. coli that has sickened at least 42 people in 21 states since December. The FDA tracked the outbreak to a batch of General Mills flour sold under the brand names Gold Medal, Gold Medal Wondra and Signature Kitchens, triggering a recall.

Most people who read the recommendation probably already knew they weren’t supposed to eat cookie dough because of the raw eggs in it (though people donꞌt always do what theyꞌre supposed to do). But the flour recommendation was flummoxing, particularly because of the FDA’s explanation: Flour is a field food, the agency said in a June 28 consumer update. If pathogens get into the wheat plants while they are growing in a field — via wild animal waste, for example — they’ll stay in through the milling process.

That advice makes sense. Except that people eat lots of field foods raw. If raw flour is dangerous, what about a spinach salad or a bowl of fresh strawberries? Why hasn’t the FDA declared all raw foods a no-go? [Top 7 Germs in Food That Make You Sick]

Live Science spoke with an FDA expert and an outside food safety researcher who had the answers. Bottom line: Yes, salad can cause illness, and produce has been linked to many more outbreaks than flour. But the risk of illness from raw produce is better understood than the largely unquantified risk from grains. And fruits and vegetables are processed under the assumption that people will eat them raw, whereas flour isn’t.  

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that nearly half of foodborne illnesses are caused by produce. So why raise the red flag over flour?

“We just want to provide consumers with the best information to take steps to reduce their risk,” said Jenny Scott, a senior adviser in the office of food safety at the FDA Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. “The same thing happens when we have a produce outbreak.”

But the ways that people traditionally use flour did influence both the timing and the content of the recommendation. Typically, Scott told Live Science, people don’t eat raw flour in large quantities.

“Because people donꞌt think of raw flour as being a concern, that’s one of the reasons we’re making the effort to get the information out,” she said. The risk of illness from raw flour is low, she said, but then, so is the risk from raw produce.

The current flour-related outbreak is the second of two such outbreaks in the past seven years. The earlier one was a 2009 outbreak of another strain of E. coli caused by Nestlé Toll House prepackaged cookie dough, which — surprise, surprise — people were eating raw. Exhibiting a clear-eyed realism about human nature, Nestlé opted to start heat-treating all of the flour in its raw cookie dough.

Some recent changes in consumer behavior may explain the appearance of this newest flour-related outbreak, Scott said. Some pizzerias, for example, have started giving kids balls of raw dough to play with while they wait for their meals. But also, improvements in epidemiology now allow researchers to detect and track outbreaks that might have gone unnoticed in earlier years, she said.

“It happens once, you think, ‘Well, that’s a fluke, not really an issue,'” Scott said. “It happens twice, you start thinking, ‘Hmm, maybe there is something here.'”

Food safety experts are now aware of the flour risk, but are only beginning to understand it. Outbreaks related to produce have been studied intensively for two decades, starting with a massive outbreak of infection with the parasite Cyclospora in 1996 (it eventually was traced to raspberries imported from Guatemala). By comparison, there isn’t much data on the prevalence of pathogens in flour, said Ben Chapman, a professor of food safety at North Carolina State University. 

“Over 20 years, we have a pretty good understanding, or a better understanding, of fresh produce consumption, but when it comes to flour, we don’t know,” Chapman told Live Science. “It’s hard to make risk-management decisions based on unknowns.”

No one really knows how General Mills’ flour became contaminated, or if contamination is a widespread problem among other brands. E. coli can spread through animal feces, so wildlife pooping in and around fields might be the culprit. But untreated irrigation water could spread the bacteria, too, Chapman said, or there could be some sort of cross-contamination during the milling process. No one knows how long E. coli or other pathogens persist in dry foods like flour, he said.

“It’s still relatively new for us to be looking at this as a community,” he said.

As for produce, which is currently responsible for far more outbreaks than raw flour, the FDA is making strides on safety. The agency recently released a new Produce Safety rule under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act that requires specific water quality guidelines and testing for irrigation water, rules for manure and compost use, and standards related to worker hygiene and equipment and tools. Raw sprouts, the culprit in 42 outbreaks between 1996 and 2014, get special attention under the new rule. [Top 10 Science Buzzkills: Studies that Ruin Your Fun]

Grains aren’t covered under the new Produce Safety rule, but both producers and regulators will likely be looking at ways to reduce the risk of contamination, Chapman and Scott said. Widespread heat-treatment of flour seems unlikely at this point due to the lack of infrastructure and technology to treat the grain supply, according to Scott.

But with huge grain-consuming companies like Nestlé and General Mills linked to outbreaks, producers will be examining their supply chains and processing practices, Chapman said.

“It’s bad business, being linked to outbreaks,” he said.
