One of my readers sent me a link to a TV show where the discussion was about why veggies should always be consumed in cooked form. This is a concept rooted in Ayurveda and talks about how raw salads increases the ‘vata‘ of the body which in turn increases the air in the body which causes the cells to age faster. And this ‘ageing’ process manifests itself in faster appearance of wrinkles etc. Slightly steaming or sauteeing salads can take care of this.
