Not to mention americans are addicted to high sugar/fat diet.
Acrylamide has been found in certain foods, with especially high levels in potato chips, French fries, and other food products produced by high-temperature cooking.
Asparagine is an amino acid (a building block of proteins) that is found in many vegetables, with higher concentrations in some varieties of potatoes. When heated to high temperatures in the presence of certain sugars, asparagine can form acrylamide. High-temperature cooking methods, such as frying, baking, or broiling, have been found to produce acrylamide (3), while boiling and microwaving appear less likely to do so. Longer cooking times can also increase acrylamide production when the cooking temperature is above 120 degrees Celsius (4, 5).

Raw offerings are:
1) Oatmeal; Old-fashioned/Thick/Quick
2) White/Brown Rice
3) Legumes; Lentils, Split Peas, Navy beans, Etc.
4) Potatos (colored potatoes are healthier but usually more expensive; ex: sweet potatos)
Contrary to popular belief these foods are NOT healthy for you. Cereal grains, starches and legumes are brutal on the digestive tract. Lectins, anti-nutrients (although can be broken down at high temperatures) contribute to a degraded colon wall and auto-immune problems (IBS, IBD, Crohn's, Celiac's, Eczema, Psoriasis etc.)

Those things I listed are popular in asian diets and asians are well known for longer life and less cancer and less obesity. Addtionally, studies here in America show negative affects with raw soybeans, while asians have cooked them for longer than ameicans have been in america. Ironically, asian studies show raw soybeans to be healthy. Strange eh? Much of the healthy food research out there will support my statements about turning to raw foods. If you go to the websites on hte net that're official and not conspiracy sites, you'll see they recommend raw food just as I have. So before you jump around like a monkey with arms flailing, please reconsider.
You know those NO CARBS diets are unhealthy. Most if not all dietary associations in the world consider the paleo diet BS. IMHO, it's pseudo-science. There might be some truth to it, though. For example, I wouldn't want to depend on any one food in my diet. A balanced diet is still the best. Some meat is good.edit on 29-3-2013 by jonnywhite because: (no reason given)
Some research suggests that phytate has the potential ability to lower blood glucose, reduce cholesterol and triacylglycerols, and reduce the risks of cancer and heart disease, and it may play a part in reducing colon cancer through its absorption of iron and other minerals that cancer cells need for growth.
However, it also deprives non-cancerous cells of the minerals needed for health.
