In brief: Misinformation

Cooking food alters protein but it is simply not true that it renders the protein less available.
You've a grown woman and should be able to recognize untruths at your age -- look at the rhetoric ("cooked food is dead food.") eat your meat raw, and you're asking for toxoplasmosis, hemolytic-uremic syndrome or worse. If you like raw vegetables and fruits, at least wash them. Glad you wrote.
