Is FullyRaw right? Can eating a raw food diet really change your eye color?

Join me as I do my best to tackle all the silly, irrational reasons often given for eating raw and vegan diets. In Episode 10, I look at the claim by raw foodists that eating a raw food diet can change your eye color, signifying a healthier, more “pure” body.

Actually I’ve done research on this as well and found publications
regarding Glutathione, a nutrient found plentiful in fruits and veges,
known to affect melanin, which creates eye colour. Glutathione
competitively inhibits melanin synthesis in the reaction of tyrosinase and
L-DOPA by interrupting L-DOPA’s ability to bind to tyrosinase during
melanin synthesis. High levels of glutathione do in fact affect iris
colour, by lightening it since melanin causes a darkening. It works so
well in fact, that extracted glutathione powder is now being used in
cosmetics in the Philippines and Japan to lighten the skin and the eyes
unnaturally.

I was about to write that I can’t believe you made this video. There is no
way in hell anyone can possible believe that eye-color has anything to do
with food… But then I read the comment section….

Erin Janus says:

Many people including Dr. Robert Morse, who promotes a high-fruit
vegan diet as a detox method to heal disease, studies iridology and has
seen time and time again that a cleansed colon over the course of months
and years leads to clearer, bluer eyes. I do not like your style of
“there’s no evidence” when there is.. a lot.. of evidence.

Cassie Marie says:

Ah yes. Brown/dark eyes are not as healthy as light eyes. And other racist
bullshit. 

Puhleez says:

lol, oh snap. lol. Lawsuit incoming?

onerugrat says:

I think you have beautiful eyes! I want to cuddle.

I think the most important thing that people don’t realize is that
Kristina conveniently fails to mention that her mother has the same
hazel/bluish eyes. I do think healing from illness, attitude, diet,
lifestyle change and the vast amount of glutathione may have all
contributed to her eyes lightening. But, it’s not necessarily because she
is raw vegan. This gene was already in her DNA and maybe a gene got
switched on or off. It could also be simply the fact that as she got older
hormones changed and her eyes lightened. …A similar thing happened to me.
My biological mother has red hair. I have naturally dark brown hair. For a
few years I was naturally growing red streaks. Genes are funny that way.
But, it is amusing that she used her eye change to promote her
business…oh, however, I should also mention that there have been
numerous raw vegans that have reported either a change in eye colour or
lightening. Denise Minger, a former raw vegan for example, noticed her eyes
lightened but she says it was most likely due to glutathione. So yes, I
think diet may change eye colour or not. Mine didn’t. ah well ;)

I stopped subscribing to Kristina after I watched her ‘I change my eye
color with raw food’ video. I do not doubt her integrity but do question
the superiority of one eye color over another. Everyone is free to pick
their personal aesthetic preferences but that doesn’t imply a health
improvement. So iridology buffs lets see the non-anecdotal evidence that
the changes observed are an indicator of improved health.

What percentage of the population at large not eating raw food experience
eye color changes at the same age? 

Jessica L says:

Every single video I’ve watched where people claim their eye color changed,
it’s always “proven” with pictures taken with completely different lighting
and backgrounds. My eyes are blue with yellow around the pupil, which can
look green when I wear a green sweater, or blue if I wear blue.
The first video I ever saw on this topic was FullyRawKristina’s, and every
video of hers that I watch now, I’m baffled by the amount of blue eyeliner
she wears in order to make it look like her obviously hazel eyes are blue.
It just seems like a weird fetish for blue eyes that a lot of these people
have, like baby blues are the be-all and end-all of colors.

Amy M says:

Study iridology. My eyes changed on a raw vegan lifestyle. I have proof.
Look up Dr. Robert Morse. I know hundreds of people whose eyes have changed
since cleaning up their diet with raw foods. There are only two true eye
colors. Blue and brown. Look up Dr. Bernard Jensen as well and study his
work. There’s far too much evidence that the eyes are the windows to our
internal health. 

Vivtzka says:

You’re basically making a video here without researching the subject enough
and just deciding on an answer to a question you know nothing about.
So according to you a raw diet cannot change your eye colour? On what are
you basing your answer?

Dr. Robert Morse has some interesting info on the subject of eye colour,
and he actually determines that our eyes can indicate health problems we
have. You should look him up, he even mentions Kristina.

Not all people will experience lightening of the eyes due to diet change,
but according to Dr. Morse, people can be born with blue eyes that look
brown because of acidity and poor health, and when they change their diet,
their eyes will become blue again.
According to Iridology, the eyes are a map of your health. Nowhere do they
say that lighter eyes are better. You can be perfectly healthy with brown
eyes, but that is if your eyes are a true brown colour. For people with
true blue eyes who’s eyes only seem brown, turning lighter is better.

ArtisteVisage says:

My eyes changed from brown to hazel with age. Not from diet. And they are
still getting lighter! Am i a raw vegan? Nope

Jennifer Myers says:

Great video. The whole vegan eye color lightening thing is beyond
ridiculous.

Audrius Gonta says:

Dr Robert Morse Channel proofs Iridiology and eyes definitely changes when
youre cleansing.

Raw and Cooked Vegan says:

The appearance of the eye as an indicator of health cannot be written off.
All of us know that when we are ill the appearance of our eyes often
expresses some of the symptoms of ill health. There is a healthy,
beautiful, brown eye. Fear not brown eyed people. But it is very easy for
bright colors to be darkened. Watch Kristina’s video. I don’t think any
of Swayze’s explanations are adequate in describing the change that is
visible in Kristina’s eyes in her photo. Is reflexology also total BS? Is
it so hard to believe that nerve endings in various parts of the body are
linked to other parts of the body? Iridology and reflexology may not be
well documented sciences but there is definitely something to them. 

Diego Magana says:

What about the claim that eating raw is the only diet that can reverse a
disease?

Manuela Hutter says:

what do you think of Andrew’s glutathione theory?

Noel Rodriguez says:

IRIDOLOGISTS proves that the eyes show your health state. You may notice
intoxication by color and shape. The biggest obstacle one may find relies
on people who surround you, as most of them are stuck in so myths when it
comes to Protein and Vitamin B12, as these are caused by the power of Food
Industry media.

cucumber202 says:

from the comments I get that most people don’t get the point and make it a
racist issue. it has nothing to do with racism. it is just that a person
may have light eyes but the loxins in the body made the brown pigment and
once the toxins are removed they get lighter eyes.

Mark Gailmor says:

Tell you a secret about some of the folks who make this claim. First,
Kristina comes from money so the chances are high that she had a synthetic
iris implanted to give her a new eye color. This process, which many
doctors are against because it can damage the eyes, people will spend
$5,000 for the privilege of getting a new eye color. Since K’s dad is quite
wealthy this amount of money wouldn’t even be a drop in the bucket for him
so it’s highly probable. I find myself laughing at all of her videos,
Andrew Perlot’s nonsensical videos and Loren Lochman’s videos. It’s nice to
see someone else that didn’t drink the Datorade for too long.

Brenda Moore says:

In fact you show no evidence for anything you say. It’s something you read
somewhere so if you have some evidence you need to state or site these
studies. If I don’t like a video I usually will not comment on it but you
seem to think you’ve turned into some kind of expert on all things raw.

Plant Based Analyst says:

I really like that you support your claims with research and references. So
few actually do that. 

Molly Grace says:

I have green eyes, my brother has green eyes, but green and blue eyes are a
recent genetic mutation in human history. The majority of people have brown
eyes, regardless of health or colon cleanliness. 

tbayguy says:

My eyes are flat black in colour because I am dead inside. They used to
be bright blue. ho ho ho Cant wait for another Valentines Day.
