This is often not an issue for many individuals, but for people who have medical issues (for example a compromised immune system) or who are pregnant, a raw food diet may pose more harm than good.
Always check with a health care professional to see if a raw food diet would help or hurt you. You certainly don’t want to be pursuing health benefits and end up worsening a pre-existing condition.
There are certain tips you need to know about consuming each raw food, too. For instance, raw foodies will remove the “eyes” of a potato before eating it raw due to the eyes have a toxin in them which can sicken you.
Will everyone be in danger on the raw food diet plan? Of course not! A lot of people will experience a great improvement in their health and energy. Needless to say, there are things you have to do to ensure your well-being – like shopping for fresh ingredients typically from a reliable source.
