“We usually end up finding what we are looking for, but we only look for what we already know.”
Alejandro Junger, Clean: The Revolutionary Program to Restore the Body's Natural Ability to Heal Itself

“The problem is we are not eating food anymore, we are eating food like products. (Hungry For Change Film)”
Alejandro Junger

“Cooked foods delay the detox signal further, because heating any food above 180° Fahrenheit destroys the enzymes contained in it. Enzymes are of paramount importance for digestion. Manufacturing them takes so much energy that nature provides them already made. Raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds contain the enzymes necessary for their own digestion. When those foods get cooked, we lose that important resource. We have to manufacture all our own enzymes from scratch, which adds to the energy cost of eating and delays the funding for detoxification. (p. 131)”
