I just got Alissa's book this morning. So I'm at the office now thumbing thru it and I need help on understanding something. Does 112 Degrees feeling warm to the touch mean destroys al it enzymes?

When food is cooked at a temperature above 112 degrees the enzymes begin to be destroyed. You want to stay at 112 degrees or below when warming food. Does this help?
We have our hot water heater set at 105 degrees. With the hot water only turned on it is too hot to comfortalby just step in and sit down. If we are wanting to soak in hot water we have to ease into it using a little cold water in the beginning.
The point: If the actual temp of the food, not the air around it, is above 105 it is not comfortable to put it into your body. 112 degrees would burn your mouth. That would acutally destroy cells in your mouth. What has it done to the cells in the food?
