Can you get too much nutrition from a high-raw diet?
I don't take supplements but if I am eating so many vegetables, fruit, and sprouted grains
, might I be ingesting too much of something? Andrew's Answer:
If you're sticking to a healthy raw food diet
made up of whole raw fruits and vegetables, you don't have to worry about receiving too much of any nutrient.
Unlike nutritional supplements and vitamin pills
, which have been connected to cancer and a number of other diseases, whole fruits and vegetables give your body the nutrients it requires to function properly in a ratio that won't overwhelm it.

Stick with raw whole foods, and you'll do just fine. Following Up:
