GMO’s

Genetic Roulette, by Jeffrey M. Smith, is a truly informative and awakening book about the dangers of genetically modified foods and the easy steps to take to avoid them. He says Americans get sick more often than Europeans and people in other industrialized countries, are getting sicker, and there is a correlation of use of GMO with increase in disease rates. The science behind genetic engineering is haphazard, risky, unregulated, and untested for long term use. Plants have been engineered to either tolerate being sprayed with herbicide and not die or to produce their own toxic insecticide that breaks open the stomach and kill bugs that eat the plant. The GMO industry claims it has no affect on humans, but there has been an increase is stomach disorders and many other diseases.

There are nine GMO food crops: soy, corn (not popcorn), cottonseed (for oil), canola (for oil), sugar beets (for sugar), papaya (Hawaiian and Chinese), zucchini, yellow crookneck squash, and alfalfa (for hay) however their derivatives are found in many processed and packaged foods. These can all be avoided by simply buying only foods labelled “Organic” or “Non-GMO”. These are easy to avoid as a fruitarian raw vegan on The 80/10/10 Diet by Dr. Douglas Graham.

Wild Edible Cherries

Cherries contain anthocyanins, nature’s pain reliever, and melatonin, another natural pain reliever that also helps regulate the sleep cycle! Anthocyanins are also used by the body to help produce amino acids which are used to produce protein. Cherries also contain fiber and lots of Vitamin C, an antioxidant, with anti-cancer properties. Wow! My favorite cherries are wild black cherries that fall into my yard from my neighbor’s wild cherry tree.

Winter Raw Vegan Style :)

I have been living in Massachusetts (USA) my whole life, all raw since 1999, and vegan since 1990. This is how I stay warm during a cold New England winter as a low fat raw vegan. I wear cotton socks, fleece socks, ankle warmers, boots, sweatpants, t-shirt, turtleneck, sweater, hat, mittens, and coat. I curl up with flannel sheets, blanket, comforter, afghan, and my adorable snugly cat while sleeping. When it’s below freezing outside I sometimes use an electric mattress warmer. To seal my pores and keep body heat in, I rub a little coconut oil on my skin. To moisturize drier winter air and help hold heat in the room, I sometimes use a hot steam vaporizer. I sunbathe my face for warmth and vitamin D. Activities warm me up like shoveling snow, house-work, yoga, fitness, and dance. I designed my home with many windows on the south side which produces ten free degrees of passive solar heat on sunny days. I use oil filled electric radiant heaters and will learn how to build solar electric panels and a wind mill. I drink fruit-smoothies and eat warmed low fat raw vegan soup, warm low fat raw vegan raisin oatmeal, lots of raw fruits (bananas, dates, mangoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, wild apples, wild black cherries, etc.), some herbal tea, a little fatty raw vegan food (avocado, seeds, tree-nuts), a little warming raw-foods (cayenne pepper, ginger, garlic), and some mineral rich foods (celery, lettuce, kale).

RAW

In 1990 I discovered I have a secondary food allergy to cooked cow milk, went vegan, began reading about food allergies, and began elimination challenge testing as suggested by my holistic medical doctor, Dr. Ward of Holistic Family Practice, Newburyport, MA. Eventually I found out I have secondary food allergies to cooked milk, wheat, soy, and corn – the four most common food allergens. Two books inspired me to become a 100% raw-foodist on April 1, 1999: Allergies – Disease in Disguise by Carolee Bateson Koch and The Essene Gospel of Peace by Edmond Bordeaux Szekeley. After two months of being all raw, I felt so good that I never went back to being a cooked-foodist and my life keeps getting better and better. :) Click on images for more information.
