Hmmm, I believe there are no actual yams in North America. Maybe in South America, definitely in Africa. We have sweet potatoes as mentioned above, about a zillion variations, like apples. They are a wonderful food. Raw foods however are no great idea. Destroy some nutrients, yep. But also makes new ones and changes others. Cooking and prepping our food, like turning corn into a tortilla is akin to predigesting. It allows our bodies to maximize the nutritional value of quick access protein and fats. I know, we have taken the idea too far in many ways, but it is a critical point in human evolution. 2.5 million years ago or so. Using up our calories to digest dumb old barks, raw everything and even rotting meats didn't allow our brains to develop optimally. Using that big 'ol melon on your shoulders is actually intensive in terms of needing high quality calories. It makes us smarter as a species (over generations, not in the short term as far as I know).

Cooking on the embers probably makes more carbon emissions than starting your car and cooking on your exhaust manifold. Your car has a catalytic converter, your campfire doesn't.

I used to be wrought with guilt every time I started up one of my 2 stroke engines. Burning oil and gas is not good, no not ever. Then I watched BP put about 100,000 barrels of crude a day in the Gulf. I couldn't agree more with sustainability practice, mind you. I'm just beginning to think what we do is useless in light of what can happen in the blink of an eye in industrial production or oil addiction.
