Rawvolutionary Hero

Viktoras Kulvinskas was born in Lithuania during World War II and eventually emigrated to the United States. Kulvinskas co-founded, with Ann Wigmore, the Hippocrates Health Institute in Boston in 1968. In 1975, he published Survival into the 21st Century: Planetary Healers Manual. It was an incredibly influential book in the raw food movement as it was the first to integrate environmental stewardship, activism, and self-sufficiency with the principles of raw foods.
