>>>is it true that cooked foods are lacking enzymes and that they are poor nutrient foods compared to raw foods.

No. The enzymes in the plant foods are for the plants and not for you. They are digested and broken down in the stomach.

>>>is one who eats a diet of all raw foods healthier than a person who eats a diet of all cooked, processed foods?

I know of no evidence supporting such a claim. If you do, I would love to see it.

>>if cooked foods & processed foods are so lacking in nutrients and enzymes etc. then how does a person go on existing (functioning) on a diet like that

Apparently, the claims are wrong.

Cooked foods are not nutrient depleted. Refining and processing does destroy some nutrients and the more refined/processed it is, the more the loss, but these foods still have some nutrients.
