"Research into brain function reveals evidence that the emotions of love, faith, joy, fear and sadness--and even our sense of purpose in life--are not merely attitudes created through the mind's thought processes. They are actually produced and reinforced by biochemical activity within the brain, which in turn is affected by nutrients supplied by the food we eat. Raw foods contain nutrients needed for proper brain function. Cooking and, especially, processing of foods destroy nutrients needed to avoid anxiety,
depression, mood swings, and many other mental and psychological disorders. Until we know more about the connections between food and our emotions, the purest, safest, most animal and planet-friendly source of nutrition is raw plant foods." Prescription for Dietary Wellness" p.20
