I know most canned stuff is probably cooked, but what about fruits? I'm thinking canned pineapple and peaches.

EVERYTHING canned is cooked. It has to be for the shelf life and in order to prevent botulism.

I grew up in farm country and used to can and/or freeze quite a bit of produce every year. As a safe canner, I got information from the county extension office. I can vividly recall the caution to make sure to adhere to the recommended processing time so that all the enzymatic action was ceased (meaning food was fully cooked and enzymes were no longer active to create spoilage). It took me years to realize that I had been killing my perfectly wonderful food by the preservation process of my choice. Of course there are options in preservation that don't destroy the food--dehydration if done at the correct temp. can preserve as can salting (raw pickling).
Canned food=dead, denatured food.
Welcome to the raw world and wishing you abundant health in this wonderful lifestyle.

You have to think of it like this:
If it doesn't spoil in two weeks, then don't eat it.
Why? Because what causes spoiling: Bacteria, and other NATURAL means. Bacteria doesn't eat non-nutritious things, so why would it go and deal with something that has the nutritional value of sand? You want to eat life, not death. :D
