Message From Raw Chef Dan

I want to welcome all the new comers to the site. I hope you find plenty of helpfully and entertaining things on the site to truly be an asset to your journey. I have been working hard at getting this site as complete as possible for just over 2 yeas now and haven't let up. Sense 1999 I have been working my raw restaurant business without no longer than a 12day break so I am letting you all know now I will be taking a break July and most, if not all of August.
I will keep up with a few activities on the site but for the most part I need to not look at a computer for a while.

In the mean time please take advantage of the huge archive of goodies in the:

Tip Of The Week, Newsletters, Free Recipes Page, YouTube Videos Online Classes with Quest TV and My Blog

Thank you and stay tuned in September I have some really cool stuff happening.

Happiness is a state of being that does not depend on circumstances

News On The Forefront
The Organic Consumers Fund, the legislative and electoral advocacy group that Organic Consumers Association works with, focuses on promoting organic agriculture as a solution to the food safety problems, environmental destruction, diet-related diseases and climate imbalance that stem from industrial agriculture. We also see ourselves as part of a larger movement for health, justice, sustainability, peace and democracy. As a contribution to this larger movement, we've launched the Grassroots Netroots Alliance (GNA):

http://www.grassrootsnetroots.org (subscribe to GNA's email alerts here: http://grassrootsnetroots.org/subscribe.cfm).


Bowing to pressure from Monsanto and the agro-toxics industry, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced May 21 that it plans to eliminate pesticide reporting at National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). The program has tracked national pesticide use and provided critical information for consumer groups, scientists, farmers and environmental groups monitoring pesticide use and hazards.. NASS' elimination of the Agricultural Chemical Use Database is a direct attack on consumers and farmworkers' Right to Know about pesticide residues and food safety.

Pesticide reporting has become particularly important in the last ten years with Genetically Engineered crops requiring more and more pesticides.

Will Cocoa Soon Be Used as Medicine?

Specially formulated cocoa very well might soon be considered part of a treatment plan for the prevention of cardiovascular disease in diabetics.

According to new research, after diabetic patients drank a special high-flavonol cocoa for one month, blood vessel function went from severely impaired to normal. Flavanols are natural plant compounds also found in tea, red wine, and certain fruits and vegetables. They are responsible for cocoa’s healthful benefits.

The improvement was as large as has been observed with exercise and many common diabetic medications.

The cocoa used in this study is not sold in the supermarket.
