Same with meat: It somewhat reduces content in vitamins and minerals, but does partially break down fibrous tissue that otherwise would not be able to be absorbed.

What are some of the benefits of cooking food? More energy available, being able to develop larger brains, killing of parasites/pathogens.
I just wanted to add that the processes bolded above are dependent on our stomach acid or HCL (hydrochloric acid) production, and this decreases due to aging, gut/stomach illnesses, medicines like proton pump inhibitors, and probably other causes. So, I think we need to be very cautious with consuming raw meat since we don't certainly know how is our HCL production doing.

I remember a lecture by Dr. Nader Ali where he was asked if eating rare meat was beneficial, and his answer was "If you want to eat rare meat, you would be better very young, you'd be better making a lot of stomach acid, and you'd be eaten very little".

My 2 cents.

In the video you can see gastric acid simulation where minced meat have been used. Its gets broken down not cooked. Maybe unrelated to your post, but it inspired me to look for an experiment
