However, very few people are willing to make a lifestyle change to eating raw food all the time.

Steaming is the recommended way to cook to maintain the maximum nutritional value. For fruits and vegetables make sure to eat the skin because that where the nutrients are. The most simple way to steam is place your plate with the food in a larger pot that is partially filled with water, then cover both so that the steam is contained once you place the larger pot on the heating elements.

- Marinate your meet before cooking, this blocks about 90% of the cancer causing agents.
