I agree that veggies need to be raw!!!
If ya chew- tha food, it is not going to damage your organs. The problem is that now-a-days, people are in such a big hurry, they gulp their food down whereby Chewing is reduced. Digestion starts in the mouth.
The live enzyme issue also applies to the pills being advertised as the best for digestion. This is not true. You can't bett fresh raw papaya and honey when it comes to live enzymes.
