According to the “Raw Food” nutcases - that was the beginning of the end of an idyllic time of supreme human health and happiness...

I like some things raw... Carrots (eating some at the moment), Celery, Apples, Pears, Peaches....I like my steak cooked....if the raw food people want theirs raw... they can have it....myself ...Medium well please!!

There is little argument that cooking food makes the nutrients more bio-available and that there is NOTHING in biology represented by what the Raw Foodists call the “enzyme potential” that is depleted through eating cooked food.

I like some foods raw as well - but it isn't because I have deluded myself into thinking that the raw carrot I eat has within it the enzymes to digest ‘carrot’ that somehow survive the acidic environment of my stomach - and that if I eat a cooked carrot I deplete my “enzyme potential” by making the enzymes to digest it.

It is amusing to me that they never considered world history amid their fervent delusion. Every culture that tried cooking food has adopted it as a superior method, but really - what did they know? /s

And yet, hot dogs come in packages of 10 and hot dog buns come in packages of 8. The grill as impetus of brain growth clearly has limits...

>>Just that the subject of the thread, and you mentioned Campbell, I just thought you were referring to Jack Campbell.<<
No offense, but who is Jack Campbell?

SF readers will know of the Campbell of whom I reverently refer. There is only one. :)
