I totally agree with this. There are many vegetables that are really tough on digestion if not cooked properly, like cruciferous vegetables. Another thing I wanted to add is that a lot of enzymes from raw or cooked foods are broken down in the mouth/saliva anyways and by the time they get further along in the digestive process they are already lost and not completely available to be absorbed into the body. That is another reason why raw food isn't completely superior to cooked.

People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
