health challenges since he was very young. A severe food reaction
at the age of one sent him to the Emergency Room in Anaphylactic
Shock. His entire body had swelled to twice its normal size. Later

In 1999, while working as a pilot in California, George began
to investigate the world of nutrition. The more he read and compared
the information with Charles', the more George realized the positive
impact that living food has on the body. George says that he and
Charles decided to make a radical change in their diet. So George,
Charles, and a friend Stephen Malachi decided to go on an all

been eating healthy ever since.

Coralanne decided to try this conversion to an all raw diet as
well. She considers herself a female version of the Top Raw Men
