30 Bananas a Day!

I heard David Wolfe, in a lecture at Bastyr College in Seattle, claiming that raw foods can cure Downe's Syndrome... Maybe kombucha-soaked Goji berries in super-cacao and MSM will do it? At a nominal fee, of course....

Water causes cancer???
Why does everything he promotes have to be some esoteric product that is very expensive? This way of eating needs to come out to the mainstream and most people do not have money to throw away. By bending the truth and pushing magical foods he does us and others who could benefit from a lfrv lifestyle a disservice. I think the truth is more than enough...
I made an executive decision,not to go to his talk when he gets here this month,and i was invited to the exclusive chocolate party and everything,lol ;) no thank you.Amidst all the guff,he originally had some really great stuff to say,before all the products and high folootin carry on,i still really enjoy his sunfood success book,one of the first raw food books i really got stuck in to,and helped me to go to low fat high fruit then 811.
Its up to us to weed out the bits we dont like and listen or read the rest that does make sense to us.
Oh i made the decision not to go after i found its $AUD50 for two hours of marketing :D
You should sneak in at least
ohhh i would love to have some noni one day Koa...love and peace to you also x
I saw him speak at raw spirit festival (09) and Ah! he is so InTenSe, I had to really hold my own space and kinda disengage from listening the whole time, he is overwhelming and he was all about free stuff and even the raw nature peole get as excited with free ''s***'' as a fat kid at mcDs.
But he was definetly more on products than health!

my favourite part was when he was ''I just DiScoveREd these NEW herbs'' and he was talking about herbs used in ayurveda for thousdands of years... haha
I'd like to hear how he thinks raw food can cure Down Syndrome. Perhaps it can be less severe if the mother adopts a raw food diet early in her pregnancy. But once the baby is born, to say that raw foods can reverse the mental retardation that is associated with Down Syndrome, or reshape the face, seems absurd.
I also went to that lecture at Bastyr and distinctly remember something being said by him about curing Downs. I believe he said something like that there was this man he knew who had a ?grandson? born with downs and that man was curing the downs because he knew all the exact right nutrients/etc. that needed to be used to do so. but yeah, more info would be helpful. surely if it would benefit humankind it seems it would be better to get the info out there than to keep it secret.

I found his talk motivating and inspiring, but it also left me frustrated that I could never afford all the things and experiences that have supposedly contributed to his health (i.e. $5000 grounding mat that realigns you with the earths energy field thats the same ones that the astronauts use or something like that, stuff that makes the special water that comes out when water is spun through a specific series of vortexes or whatever, and then plants that are grown on this water, black honey from bees that have gathered from the plants that have been grown watered wtih this water, etc) I think he has a LOT of fascinating ideas...but its hard to discern whether they are legitimate, or snakeoil, especially cuz im not rich enough to try all the stuff myself.... :/
naa, it wasnt just that mat, it was a whole mat that you lay down on like nasa has... he said they cost about 5000 bucks, he wasnt selling them though, at least not then. he let some of the audience members who had health problems try it but there was only time for a couple people. i found it fascinating, but again, i wonder which of this stuff is really legit/really "works". i.e. superfoods dont do much for me, the ones ive tried. alot of his ideas are really fascinating though--if theres really anything to them.
Are you serious?


On a different note, I wanted to go to Bastyr...
maybe if the parents turned to a clean raw vegan diet before they got pregnant?
