What is Disease?

by David Klein, Ph.D.

From Living Nutrition vol. 5

We also have the examples of most of the Living Nutrition staff thriving on a 100% raw food diet (three of us have eaten 100% raw for the last 6, 21 and 46 years), and many (but not enough!) of our friends thriving on 100% raw foods. The second mistake, concerning disease, is perhaps the most difficult of all health-related concepts.
