“I just LOVE listening to Dr. Klaper! I hang on his every word. Thank you for this interview. I’ve heard so many of his lectures on YouTube but there are always more pearls of wisdom he drops along the way.” – Susan H.
“A wonderful and informative interview with Dr. Klaper. Thank you Chef AJ for posting. Dr. Klaper was among the first doctors who’s work and presentations helped me understand enough about the relationship between what we eat and the resulting health outcomes, to get me started eating to what has evolved to be my Plant Based Whole Food, No Oil Way Of Eating.” – Jimmy Wells
“Thank you so much, AJ for this video. Dr. Klaper answered a question I’ve wondered since I was plant based raw vegan for 7 years until it started hurting my gut. Still plant based and eat some raw but have added steaming dark greens, potatoes and soups. I wondered about the enzymes since I always heard cooking destroys them. Well, now I know.” – Carole A. Gaulden
“Great information from Dr. Klaper. His explanations of how the body works are thorough.” – Mango Marilyn
“Love his comment about chewing food thoroughly. It’s something I have to work on constantly, but it makes a big difference when you do it. Chew your food into puree before you swallow. I try to remember the phrase, “Your stomach doesn’t have teeth”.” – quietstormaps
