Does anyone have any good blogs/resources for going (mostly) raw that aren't based in non-science crepe? I have a friend who's interested, but he can't seem to find anything that seems scientifically legitimate and not holistic hoodoo crepe.
I think the problem is that there isn't any medical justification, or enough, for eating an all raw diet, so you just will not find much.
You might want to point your friend to the book Becoming Raw
by Brenda Davis R.D.
I have read her books for years. She is very conservative nutritionally. She deals in facts.
People who have reviewed her book have taken it as an endorsement of raw foodism, but reading her words carefully you can see she uses a lot of words like "may" and "possibly" with a lot of the benefits she mentions linked to citations for increased vegetable intake and/or vegetarianism.
Davis is a diplomat, and my GUESS is that she wrote this book as a means of inviting raw foodists "back into the light" of fact based nutrition information.
Someone who is into raw foodism will see this book as being supportive of them. My personal belief is that was intentional with the motivation of getting information to that audience on how to live safely on a raw food diet.
