Ok thanks, so the cooking will reduce the toxic load I did not know that.

Contrary to what the trendy raw food movement would have you believe, it seems that primitive man used cooking extensively. Most HG groups cook both their meat (some is consumed raw) and plant matter (vegatables and many times fruit!). Cooking not only destroys anti-nutrients, it also allows for greater absorption of the beneficial nutrients.

I agree with Greg that one should try to reduce overall toxic load. That's exactly the reason that I keep beans grains out of my diet.
