Part I. Reading Comprehension

Passage 1

Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passage:

The human race learned long ago that cooking meat before eating it would protect them from certain diseases. Since then this practice of cooking has grown to include all types of food. Very few meals are eaten which include raw elements, except for the green salad. Nevertheless we have to know more about raw food.

Raw foods are of better quality, with the best balance of water, nutrients, and fiber to meet your body’s needs. The heat of cooking reduces vitamins, damages proteins and fats, and destroys enzymes(酶) which benefit digestion(消化). As raw foods in your diet increase you feel satisfied and have more energy on smaller meals.

Raw foods have more taste than cooked foods so there is no need to add salt, sugar, or other spices that can bother your digestion system or over-stimulate other organs.

Raw foods take very little preparation so you spend less time in the kitchen. Even a child of 5 or 6 can prepare most things for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This gives children a sense of confidence and independence, not to mention the break it gives Mom or Dad.

Eating a diet of raw foods can stop the advance of many unending diseases, including heart disease and cancer and protect you from acute diseases such as colds, flu, etc. Raw foods maintain a healthy body and a healthy body will not become diseased.

It is environmentally sound. With humankind on a diet of raw foods, enormous amounts of natural resources used to produce power for food industries would be saved. Many trees and oil reserves could be saved without the need for the paper and plastic used in packaging our foods. There would also be less carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere and more oxygen produced from all the new orchards(果园) and gardens.

So don’t waste your food, yourself, and our planet by cooking what you eat. Fruits, nuts, and vegetables that are whole, fresh and raw are filled with life and have the ability to deliver their life force directly to you.
