Raw food diet has become increasingly popular these days. While winter isn’t the best time to start eating raw, summer is the perfect time to do it. In summer, fruit and vegetables are plentiful, organic, cheap and tasty. Many people eat raw to lose weight, keep it off or simply to improve overall health. Whether you stick to a semi-raw or raw food diet, you reap all its health benefits while enjoying delicious food.

Cooking foods can produce toxic carcinogens that can lead to different types of cancer and many other diseases.
