Abstract

Dietary intake and overall physical health have proven to have a parallel relationship. This literature review was conducted using tertiary data to summarize the known effects of consumption of a plant-based diet on chronic diseases and other illnesses. Studies on the effects of adherence to a raw food diet have focused on plasma and energy levels, body mass index and vitamin B12 deficiency. While there are proven short-term benefits to eating a raw food diet, more evidence is needed to show that this diet style alone can consistently have positive effects on disease and illness for long term adherents.
