This isn't about raw food specifically, but about avoiding and curing disease with diet. There is a terrific YouTube video here:
It's a Ted Talk called, "Can We Eat To Starve Cancer?"
It's only 24 minutes long and well worth the time.
The speaker, William Li, talks about anti-angiogenic therapy, which is a method that inhibits the growth of the blood vessels which feed cancer cells. He proposes that by eating certain healthy foods each day, we can inhibit the growth of cancer-feeding blood vessels while keeping healthy blood vessel growth in balance. A healthy diet may prevent cancer cells from growing to a size where medical intervention is needed. He doesn't go into this in detail, but lists other diseases that may also be affected by angiogenesis. He shares a list of foods which contain angiogenesis inhibitors, such as:
grape seed oil
Our family already eats many of the foods on this list on a daily basis, and we aren't even 100% raw. This is a wonderful trend - every day, more information is shared about the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables.
