A 100 percent raw diet may not be optimal for reasons relating to anti-nutrients such as phytic acid, lectins, as well as not obtaining the full potential of certain nutrients that are more accessible to digestion when cooking, such as lycopene in tomatoes. Overall, a plant-based diet outcompetes an animal-centered diet because hormonal and cellular pathways, such as mTOR, are adversely affected by animal proteins partly due to amino acid profiles that are different from plant sources of protein, along with other factors.

Unfortunately, industrial pollutants accumulate up the food chain—and such contaminants get into the earth, air and water—resulting in arsenic-laden grain. Plant-based diets are lower in arsenic because they …
