There are enzymes in all foods, but since we cook them all the enzymes die.
Why do we need enzymes? What do they do?
Enzymes fall into one of three major classifications. The largest is the metabolic enzymes which play a role in all bodily processes including breathing, talking, moving, thinking, behavior and maintenance of the immune system. A subset of these metabolic enzymes acts to neutralize poisons and carcinogens such as pollutants, DDT and tobacco smoke, changing them into less toxic forms that the body can eliminate. The second category is the digestive enzymes, of which there are about 22 in number. Most of these are manufactured by the pancreas. They are secreted by glands in the duodenum (a valve that separates the stomach from the small intestine) and work to break down the bulk of partially digested food leaving the stomach.
The enzymes we need to consider when planning our diets are the third category, the food enzymes. These are present in raw foods and they initiate the process of digestion in the mouth and upper stomach. Food enzymes include proteases for digesting protein, lipases for digesting fats and amylases for digesting carbohydrates. Amylases in saliva contribute to the digestion of carbohydrates while they are being chewed, and all enzymes found in food continue this process while it rests in the upper or cardiac portion of the stomach. The upper stomach secretes no digestive juices whatsoever, but acts much like the crop of a bird or the first stomach of ruminant animals. It can be described as a holding tank where the enzymes present in raw foods do their work on what we have eaten before this more or less partially digested mass passes on to the lower stomach, about 30 minutes after food is ingested. Hydrochloric acid secretion occurs only in the lower stomach and is stimulated by the passage of food from the upper to lower stomach. (This hydrochloric acid does not digest meat, as is commonly believed, but activates the enzyme pepsinogen to its active form pepsin that digests protein.)
Our body manufaxctures enzymes but have great difficulty doing that if we are not consuming any enzymes. Oh sure you can rock on for a few years, decades even on the rare salad or some occasional crudites served at a party but not enough over the long haul will truely take it's toll. In fact consumption of exclusively cooked foods will put a severe strain on the pancreas where the insulin is manufactured.
There is the proof that our diet CAUSES diabetes.
DIGESTION AND G.I. TRACT
PROBLEMS OF ALL KINDS
Digest your food right for the first time in your life. The missing nutrient [enzymes] treats the real, underlying problem and often cures suffering
victims once and for all. Many patients report instant, miraculous relief. Food allergies go away for good and you can eat anything!... a delighted heartburn victim was able to cancel surgery, and a baby’s colic
vanished in one day.
This is good news. I'm taking CellPower™ to get many enzymes essential to health, and I'm also taking a special enzyme formula from
who have great prices and products I trust manufactured in the US.
Autism and arthrites, Diabetes and Cancer, pain and Heart disease are all enzyme deficiency diseases.
What have you got to lose? Try a diet that includes 1/3 raw foods and you'll find out it's true. You've heard about the miracles that happen when someone sent home to die of cancer by a Physician, goes to one of the alternative healing centers? They are given all fresh fruits and vegetables, whole and juiced and soon are walking out healed and hearty, busting with health.
Is that what you want or do you want to stay sick? Choose.

The 30 Second Quiz
Don't bother getting a pen and paper... just read... if you can't answer them, just keep going.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America contest.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer prize.
5. Name the last five Academy Award winners for Best Actor and Actress.
How did you do?
The point is, none of us remembers the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They're the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.
Now here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:
1. Name three teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worth while.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
Easier? The lesson?
The people who make a difference in your life aren't the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They're the ones who care.
Things You Don't Want to Hear During Surgery:
"Better save that. We'll need it for the autopsy."
"Someone call the janitor - we're going to need a mop!"
"Accept this sacrifice, O Great Lord of Darkness"
"Bo Bo! Come back with that! Bad Dog!"
"Wait a minute, if this is his spleen, then what's that?"
"Hand me that...uh...that uh...thingie."
"Oh no! I just lost my Rolex."
"Oops! Hey, has anyone ever survived 500ml of this stuff before?"
"Darn, there go the lights again...."
"Ya know, there's big money in kidneys. Heck, the guy's got two of 'em."
"Everybody stand back! I lost my contact lens!"
"Could you stop that thing from beating? It's throwing off my concentration."
"What's this doing here?"
"That's cool! Now can you make his leg twitch?"
"I wish I hadn't forgotten my glasses."
"Well, folks, this will be an experiment for all of us."
"Sterile, shcmerile. The floor's clean, right?"
"What do you mean, he wasn't in for a sex change?"
"Anyone see where I left that scalpel?"
"And now we remove the subject's brain and place it in the body of the ape."
"Ok. Now take a picture from this angle. This is truly a freak of nature."
"This patient has already had some kids, right?"
"Don't worry. I think this is sharp enough."
"FIRE! FIRE! Everybody get out NOW!"
"Darn! Page 47 of the manual is missing!"
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me teeth,
And spotted the perils beneath
All the toffees I chewed,
And the sweet sticky food,
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me teeth.
So I lie in the old dentist's chair,
And I gaze up his nose in despair,
And his drill it do whine,
In these molars of mine,
"Two amalgam," he'll say, "for in there."
How I laughed at my Mother's false teeth,
As they foamed in the waters beneath,
But now comes the reckonin'
It's me they are beckonin'
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me teeth.
