Abstract

Objective: To further analyze the effects consumption of a plant based diet will have on conditions of chronic disease and other illnesses. Methods: We used tertiary data extracted from previous literature analysis pertaining to our topic of interest. Results: While there are proven benefits to eating a diet focused on raw foods in a short time span, more evidence is needed to show that a raw food diet alone can consistently have positive effects on disease and illness for long term adherents.

Key Words:  Raw diet, uncooked health benefits, disease prevention, vegan, B12, obesity, food-borne illness, energy deficiency.
