And eating raw meat is easier to digest because it contains enzymes and other vital factors which are missing in cooked meats.
Enzymes in meats will be destroyed by cooking! This will put a huge strain on your body as it needs to generate the necessary digestive enzymes to make up for what cooking took away.
Eating raw foods that contain enzymes and other vital nutrients allows your body to use more of its energy towards rebuilding worn out cells and keeping your immune system strong.
Meats that are cooked produce extreme toxicity or AGEs, whereas meats that are raw produce no toxic effects.
Raw meats can contain parasitic organisms such as tapeworms, hookworms, etc. and that does include cows feeding on contaminated grass or grass fed meats. Tapeworm infection can be acquired by eating raw or the undercooked meat of an infected animal.
Tapeworms have both male and female parts and therefore, can produce their own parasitic eggs. These parasitic worms can become a real problem if they thrive and grow inside of you.
The symptoms of tapeworms will noticeably arise when a human tapeworm becomes too large and starts blocking your bowel. And it can also deprive your body of important nutrients.
