People of the world, arise and come to your senses. You have been deceived for thousands of years. The conceptions of the whole medical world regarding the causes of diseases and the means to be adopted for their cure are erroneous and harmful. Drug therapy is the sorcery of our cooked-eating age.
In principle no poisonous substance can serve a useful purpose. Every so-called drug is poison which does nothing but harm. Drugs which are commonly regarded as means of curing diseases are, in reality, themselves the causes of diseases.
Cooked food is not nourishment. Cooking and refining destroy all the nutritive properties in natural foodstuffs and turn them into dead, poisonous and unnatural pathogenic substances. In general, diseases are nothing but the starvation of the organs of the body for natural nourishment and a lack of active cells on the one hand, and an accumulation of parasitic and inactive cells and various toxic material on the other hand. In order to free oneself from diseases it is enough to restore the necessary complement of former by the help of natural nutriments, and to starve and destroy the latter by stopping the consumption of cooked food.
Raw Food should be the only nourishment taken by man. All the 'scientific' calculations that have been developed on the nutritive values of proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and the nutrients are entirely erroneous, contradictory and hypothetical notions. The only faultless and perfect calculations which are not open to criticism are those that have been made by nature itself and have been presented to us in the form of Living Vegetable Cells. Once the living nutriment has been killed, no scientific laboratory can reconstruct it by means of its artificial vitamins and minerals.
By the process of cooking the living vegetable loses its nutritional properties and is converted into toxic substances that induce addictions and just like tobacco, alcohol and opium they have no connection with the needs of the organism. The lust for cooked food is not hunger; it is the demand of addiction for poisonous materials. The trouble and expenses undertaken by the whole world in preparing cooked meals are nothing but sheer waste.
Besides ensuring prefect health and long life (150 to 200 years), raw eating frees mankind from all sorts of economic worries, extirpates every type of addiction from the face of this earth, ennobles the soul of man, restrains his beastly inclinations, calms his passions and imbues him with the spirit of humanitarianism and the love of peace.
The best proof of the truth of my viewpoint is the irrefutable fact that raw-eating is an immediate and radical cure for all diseases without any exception. A vast amount of concrete and indisputable evidence has come to hand in support of this statement. Thousands of letters received from raw-eaters of various nationalities all over the world prove that all those patients who stop the use of drugs and cooked food are immediately and invariably cured of every kind of disease. Every recruit to raw-eating insures himself against ill-health for the rest of his life and at the same time effects a welcome economy of no less than eighty percent in the cost of his diet. People are not old at the of 80 or 90; they are sick men who may be completely cured and rejuvenated. The most serious, stubborn and seemingly incurable diseases, the causes of which are often declared to be unknown, including cancer and cardio-vascular diseases, immediately yield to an abstemious diet of raw-eating.
Kitchen fires should be extinguished in hospitals, the use of drugs should be discountinued and an end should be put to unnecessary surgical operations. Henceforth, there should no longer be any special dietetic programmes, recommendations or schedules for anybody. Raw-eating must be declared as the one and only means of curing diseases all-over the world.
The raw-eater may eat once a day or ten times a day; he may feed on one kind of fruit or a hundred kinds. From the point of view of health it makes no difference, because each individual raw vegetable taken separately provides complete nourishment in itself. The raw-eater must be guided not by lists of 'scientific' or 'dietetic' recommendations, but by the demands of his appetite and palate, which will always be his unerring guide in the selection of natural nutriments. The surest, the safest and the easiest way is to consume our food in the state in which nature has prepared and presented it to us, by simply crushing it under our teeth.
People should no longer read books that deal with the etiology of diseases, diagnosis, therapeutics, drugs, vitamins, minerals, protiens, calories, etc. All those 'scientific' postulates by which biologists try to represent cooked food as nourishment are baseless conjectures and vain delusions. All diseases originate from one common cause and have one common method of cure.
The vegetarians and non-vegetarians,who try to consume a little more fruit than usual, have the presumption to regard themselves as raw-eaters. No one, however, can consider himself a raw-eater, if he takes even one cooked meal a month, because in that way he will never be able to free himself entirely from diseases. This is because in the initial stages of raw-eating a certain number of diseased cells may fall into a stage of dormancy and prolong their existence in that condition for quite a long time. Only one cooked meal a month may than be enough to resuscitate them and afford them the opportunity to multiply again. As soon as a raw-eater takes a morsel of cooked food, he assuredly provides those diseased cells with fresh nourishment and gives them a new lease of life. Consequently, when somebody is not able to free himself completely from the scourge of diseases, he must look for the cause in those occasional transgressions and in no other quarter. There can be no justification at all for those defaults.
As matters stand, at this very moment there are certain countries where people are suffering from manmade shortage of food and are under the constant threat of starvation. An official declaration is all that is needed to accomplish the long-awaited miracle of bringing abundance into the world. Unfortunately, this simple and plain declaration that cooking debases natural foodstuffs and converts them into harmful substances dose not appear anywhere. This is a striking indication of how deeply immersed is humanity today in ignorance, prejudice, superstitions and loathsome addictions. Words like civilization and progress ring hollow when they are applied to people who, notwithstanding all that has been said and written, still refuse to admit that cooking is an unnatural and pernicious operation.
They say that biologists have made stupendous advances in their knowledge. It seems to me that the more they advance, the more must they realize that they know nothing! It is not among those biologists "steeped in contemporary knowledge and learning" that we come across venerable patriarchs who have lived to be 140-150 years of age. We meet such people at a fair distance away from the great centres of learning, in the bosom of nature, where they are partially immune from the harms caused by drugs and excessively degenerated foodstuffs. How much longer and healthier their lives would be, if they were spared even that partial degeneration to which their food is subjected at present. What gives me the right and the courage to challenge almost every current conception of medical science is the fact that 100 percent raw eating puts an immediate end to all diseases radically and simultaneously. Test, and you shall be convinced!
I am making no exaggeration when I regard as murderers and criminals all those people who, by some fanciful pretext or other, forbid the sick and the invalid their natural diet - fresh vegetables and fruits, which are the only effective means of restoring their lost health. Through their deplorable ignorance those 'learned scientists' perpetrate greater massacres than Attila or Hitler ever did. By their foolish recommendations they kill millions of people, day in and day out, without any relief or respite. Among similar unconscious criminals are all the manufacturers and distributors of medicines, beverages, tobacco, refined floor, meat, sugar, coffee and a host of other injurious products like these. Every factory producing such unnatural, degenerated substances does more harm to humanity than the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima. God is unerring, and any attempt to use fire in order to improve the quality of the natural, faultless foodstuffs created by Him for human comsumption is tantamount to doubting His supreme wisdom. It is, indeed, an open sacrilege.
Dr Leo Rebello's Note :
If this sounds unbelievable and far-fetched, you would do well to read fascinating Renee Taylor's account discovery into the Hunza Health Secrets, wherein she takes you on an amazing voyage of remote Himalaya Mountains to seek out the miraculous 2,000-year-old health secrets of the Hunzakuts. You will see how this incredible race has evolved a way of living, thinking and eating far superior to modern civilization. You will find out why these people have no poverty, no crime, police, jails or juvenile delinquency. You will discover how the Hunza health wizards 'stop the clock' of aging, how their women of 80 look like Western women of 40, how men father children at the age of 90, and how 'youngster of 120 play vigorous games like the volleyball and polo'.
