"Why all this cooking when there is really not cook like old Sol? Cooked food is dead food - and remember, the whiter the bread the sooner we are dead! Every attempt to improve on natural food must prove a failure, and Nature will react at first acutely to any interference with her beneficent laws of health. And if we continue to disobey her laws by drugs or even surgery, the symptoms may disappear for a while only to reappear in chronic or fatal diseases...Man is the only creature that cooks his food, and he is more subject to disease than any wild creature that dines on unfired food. Tradition, gluttony, and increasing desire for strong stimulants have caused man to prefer cooked food, which has seriously weakened his digestive organs. This is because cooked food can be swallowed so easily without chewing, whereas thorough mastication is essential to good health."
