On Earth Day, April 22, 2005, Doug WALSH, began his 3000-mile, 5-month hike from Mexico to Canada through the Western U,S. on the Continental Divide Trail-the most difficult hike in North America. Hiking on average a marathon a day, WALSH, a former Colorado Outward Bound Instructor with years of backcountry experience accomplished what he set out to do, show the word that the human body thrives on a raw food diet when under great physical duress and challenge. Having climbed the 100 highest peaks in Colorado, and hiked the 2650-mile Pacific Crest Trail in an amazing time of just four and one half months, WALSH recently finished the greatest challenge of his hiking career-the Continental Divide. Hippocrates was a proud sponsor of this important and historic event, and it was our great pleasure to interview Doug, just days after he completed his enormous feat. We encourage you to spread the word about Doug, now affectionately called, the Lance Armstrong of raw foods, so that the world continues to see the tremendous benefits of raw and living foods.
