This paper explains that eating live food, which is food found in nature and edible in its natural state, especially fruit that tastes better than lettuce to most people, promotes healthier living. Next, the author iterates that the current government guidelines for healthful eating is misguiding because it directs humans to consume half a plate of foods for which they were not designed to eat, such as grains and dairy, and to cook food, which is necessary to make certain items palatable, such as most animal flesh. The paper concludes that eating fruit according to the seasons is the best way to ensure that the body receives its required nutrients. Color graphics and tables are included in the paper.

From the Paper:

"Humans do not produce Vitamin C, which we get from live fruits. It is easy to see that we are attracted to fruits; a condition commonly known as having a 'sweet tooth'. Nature endowed us with a sweet tooth (Kant). It turns out that natural sweets provide most of the nutrients we need, and in the exact proportions we need them. Human's greatest nutrient needs are for water and sugar; certainly fruit is the best supplier of these. The sight of fruit makes us salivate, starting the digestive process. When food tastes delicious, our pleasure increases. There is no chocolate cake tree. We do not have to examine deeply to know that junk food is not living food but for selling purposes it could not be called 'dead food', so it was named it after JUNK, the term for drugs back in 50s and 60s. A slang word for drugs was applied it to food! Many use food as a drug to hide feelings, to anesthetize ourselves, or to escape. However, fruit will not medicate or numb uncomfortable emotions, no matter the quantity eaten.
"Fortunately Michelle Obama's initiative to fight obesity, supports bringing together players from the public and private worlds to come up with solutions."
