    Hello,
    I signed up to get what I thought was a book from you way back in September. I ended up getting a news letter but I never seem to find the information I am interested in. I sigend up for my teeth health. Today I want to see something on the Cacao that you mentioned but when I click on it it goes nowhere.
    What do I need to do to gleen the information that intrests me from your site?
    Thank You,
    Tamee

    Sorry about the wordpress glitch. The video did not seem to show up after I saved it. It’s fixed now.

    Tamee on my main page here: http://www.fredericpatenaude.com/ gives access to the free reports by signing up for my list, you receive those by email. How To Heal and Prevent Dental Disasters is available here: http://www.fredericpatenaude.com/oralhealth.html

    I will also be talking a lot about dental health in my upcoming book Raw Food Controversies, I had numerous problems with cavaties on raw foods when I didn’t take care of my teeth.

    Stay tuned for the announcement in the coming week for how you can get my new book with all of this new information.

    Thanks Frederic, I enjoyed the informative video. It makes sense to limit raw cocao. What exactly is in the cocao that makes it a stimulant?

    There’s Caffeine and Theobromine (which acts just like caffeine in the body) and together a 2 ounce piece of raw chocolate or equivalent cacao is the same to the adrenal glands of the body as drinking 1 cup of coffee.

    This is an excellent video, Fred. Oh my God, if that stuff wasn’t like substance abuse for me, I like to know what was! LOL — I fell in love with it from the first bite, thought it was going to be a wonderful mood elevator that tasted great and was “healthy”. I became addicted to it like a drug, took it daily, and got cranky without it. My pupils were like pinpoints and I was going 100 mph with everything I did. I had to stop it, and although the first several highs were so pleasant, no way did they outweigh the detriments in my experience. I still eat it for special occasions only – strictly controlled amounts no more than 5 times a year. A few months in between each hit makes for a nice cacoa buzz. You are so right when you said that one will pay for it later if they overindulge in this stuff.

    Who can be so stupid as to eat ” Raw Cacao “? That person has to be a complete idiot!!! I grew up on having hot cacao beverage at nights. I have never, ever heard about eat cacao “raw”. It is just unheard of and one must use common sense. It goes against the law of nature to eat certain foods “raw”. I know that you are a promoter of eating a lot of foods raw, but, please inform your readers about the basic common sense in lilfe.
