I think it's pretty dangerous to think that we are immune to cancer. Unfortunately, cancer can be caused by many factors. The editor from Purely Delicious got cancer, Diana got cancer, Bif Naked who's 100% raw except for Vega powder got cancer, etc. We can be vegan all we want, if we are exposed to something bad (from contaminated water to Chernobyl) we can develop cancer.

I agree that cancer is like an alarm system telling us something is wrong and we should "clean up our act" so to speak. It's not just food, it's water, the environment, our stress levels etc.

Thank you so much for your post. It was much needed on this thread and you conveyed this information tactfully and gently. Much better than I would have! Health is so complicated, it isn't fair to simplify so devastating a disease to a single component like raw food.

I always appreciate your posts Velvet. You are an excellent communicator.

Thanks again.

Another point to keep in mind related to eating raw and health is that the food is only as nutritious as the soil it's grown in. Foods raised in poor soil will not provide the same nutrients as foods from fertile soils. Even the quality of the seed or the mother plant can affect what is eaten. For instance, plants grown from GMO sources will never be 100% identical to a non-GMO conventional counterpart nor the organic version. Even if externally they look alike, genetically, energetically and otherwise, these differences are bound to impact us one way or another, sooner or later.

Foods that are imported are said to be sprayed or somehow exposed to chemicals to kill harmful bacteria before reaching the stores. Do these affect the quality of what is eaten? Who knows...

So while eating raw means avoiding application of high heat to what is consumed, it doesn't automatically protect from other potential threats to good health. Rather the whole spectrum of what makes us who we are: mind body spirit, need to be taken into consideration.
Wishing you vibrant health
