This topic came up in another thread on a different raw forum and i couldn't see any reason why some raw fooders avoid the above or regard them as unhealthy.
I just cant see any logical reason why garlic, onions and spices should be avoided, they are a decent source of nutrition, garlic in particular is well studied for its wide range of health benefits from anti-biotic properties to circulatory benefits. Spices contain a range of well documented alkaloids also which for example turmeric is well known for its anti-tumor/anti-cancer properties. There all included in the worlds healthiest foods.
Look forward to the responses.
