Why are we cooking our food?
« on: February 02, 2014, 03:02:17 PM »
Why are we cooking our food? Ayurveda even says that some type of people cannot be healthy without cooked and warm food. Why is this aberration from the natural laws?

I don't know more about Ayur Vedic medicine, as I just have a book only, I should read it in some of the next months, but...

The answer is probably this... because cooked food can be more delicious! :) Or for the safety reasons, to remove pathogenic microorganisms...  Well, I suppose it is better that we can eat more raw food, but it is rare today to have real organic and healthy raw food without too much being spiced up by pesticides or something similar that is totally unhealthy to us...
