Comment on Hard-hitting new investigative report asks “Raw gurus: can you trust them?” by Sarah Best.
Georgie, I hear where you’re coming from and agree that we should absolutely focus on improving ourselves rather than finding fault with others.
But I respectfully disagree that that means this report should not have been written. I wrote here about why it is not spiritual to stay silent while others violate our or others’ rights – and fraud, plagiarism, dangerous health advice, etc, are clear violations of rights.
It is essential that any company or individual in a position of power/influence in the alternative health movement acts with full honesty and integrity, because when they do not, that can hurt those who put their trust in them.
I don’t agree with every word of this report, but I do fully support its overall goal, which is, as Tom explained above, “a positive one: to promote more ethical behavior by raw vegan gurus, for the long-term benefit of current and future raw fooders”.

Thank you, Daniel. And agreed. Fellow Dr Fuhrman fan here 🙂
So you grew up with a dad who didn’t know how to express love? Here’s how it could be affecting you today
Thank you so much for sharing that.
Yes, it is devastating to miss the love of a father.
And it’s not made any easier by the fact that this is so little talked about and understood.
But for what it’s worth, in the four years since I began writing about this topic I’ve heard from SO many women who feel just as you do.
That’s why I started my free email series on the father-daughter relationship, which is designed to answer the very questions you posed, and which I see you’ve signed up for. I hope you’ll find it helpful.
Thanks again for the share.

Thank you for commenting, Miriam. I’d forgotten that I recommended agave in this article and I’ve made a note to revise it, as I have since revised my views – very much in line with what you wrote, in fact! I blogged about that here: http://www.sarahbesthealth.com/is-agave-syrup-a-healthy-alternative-to-sugar/ I still consider brown rice syrup a great choice since it’s essentially fructose free. As for research on the impact on emotional and mental wellbeing of consuming a high-sugar diet, I couldn’t agree more! And I personally think that what’s come out on this so far is just the tip of the iceberg 🙂
