My logic was simply that Foucault a) knows how to enjoy fine food, b) obviously isn't brainwashed and c) still loves diner food. Therefore, you can enjoy diner food without being a victim of false consciousness. Whether or not it is healthy to do so is besides the point.so your logic is as follows: because Foucault was an amazing writer, historian, and philosopher, so he must be absolutely spot-on when it comes to health and nutrition, and we should model our diet after his eating habits?
my bad I didn't notice the cooked qualification. I've had some really good lebanese raw kibbeh (ground lamb & beef w/ pine nuts & olive oil) before. It feels pretty good after eating. Kind of like sushi. I don't think I could eat raw meat all the time though.thanks for the reply. lots of good points.
I actually said "cooked animal proteine", and not just "animal protein". cooked meat drastically increases carcenogen levels, and toxifies the body more than anything else -- and these toxins does not leave the body for a long time, and causes many problems.
I suppose the jokes about eating raw meat will follow --but what you may not know is that much like raw fish is professionally prepared, raw meat can as well. and it is the best source of protein. it is not common but many traditional cultures have raw beef and other meat dishes -- Armenian, Vietnamese, etc, etc.
but you are right that vegetarianism is not the catch all solution, (but in my estimation is predominantly, overwhelmingly beneficial).
and you are right about over consumption of carbohydrates -- and that pre-agricultural diet is much more healthy -- all major diseases such as cancer did not exist before we started farming -- but there are different view points as to what "caveman" diet consisted of exactly -- what I know and have read, may be contrary to some historians and doctors in mainstream medicine, leads me to believe that it was thousands of kinds of raw plants, and little meat -- and very little cooked meat.
