We are used to cooking food in a variety of ways. However, there are products that are still better to eat with minimal cooking, because they contain a set of nutrients, phytochemicals, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and healthy fats that can easily allow a person to hit 100 years. Raw foods preserve all these nutrients, but most of them are destroyed during the processing.
For example, berries are rich in fiber and low in sugar. Cabbage reduces the risk of cancer, and nuts reduce the probability of cardiovascular diseases. Whole cow milk contains large amounts of linoleic acid, which also protects against cancer. Oily fish is an excellent prevention of vascular diseases and means of salvation from depression.
The list of useful products that are best eaten raw include apples, which are useful for the teeth and lungs and lower blood sugar, onion and garlic, which protect against heart disease and parasites, pomegranate, which is rich in antioxidants.
