I was thinking of investing in some frozen veggies for when i can't get down to my local farm or organic supermarket. After doing a bit of reading i stumbled upon Biophotons, it will not stop me buying frozen as im' sure frozen is better than none, but i am curious...your thoughts please.

What dark crazy corner of the Internet did you find that? Biophotons are photons emitted by a living organism. There's nothing there that would even be something to should consider as good/bad for you. IT'S JUST LIGHT. Really, why would you concern yourself with biophotons in your veggies? Sorry, but this just shows how all sources get equal weight on the Internet even if its written by crazy people.

I've been doing some research into biophotons and molecular biology recently myself. I've got to say, when you get deep into it there are some very interesting potential implications. The double helix nature of DNA along with the way it coils within the nucleus allows it to act as a resonator. Not only does DNA and molecules emit these photons, they also receive them. Light itself is a form of communication capable to transfering information and data. Modern day fiber optics are a prime example. This could very well be the way that RNA is copied from DNA and how an assortment of ailments can arise in the human body through a failure for this function to work correctly, i.e. cancer. Foods or a diet low in biophotons can act as an insulator and interfere with this process of data transfer on our molecular level, which can cause a number of ailments, along with having aging effects.
Even though we discovered biophotons in the early 1900s a lot of our modern understanding has really only taken place since the mid 1980s. There is still a lot of research that needs to be done in this field. I've read some scholarly publications that hypothesis that the electromagnetic field that is generated by these biophoton emissions within our body could very well be the source of consciousness itself. Of course this has a number of other implications that would complete change our understand of pretty much everything.
I digress though. Back to the topic at hand, food. I've used both paleo and ketogenic diets for years and I've found both to be extremely beneficial. I personally lost 150 lbs. using both of these diets. If you are on either of these diets you will naturally end up consuming foods higher in biophotons. I am personally adapting my diet to include more raw foods since doing my research into biophotons. I will still have frozen veggies myself on those days where time is a factor. After all we have busy lives and we have to do the best we can. I am definitely going to make a concerted effort to eat raw as often as possible, as well find a minimally to zero processed form of protein supplement. It definitely can't hurt and science is slowly showing that it has a number of medical benefits. More extensive research is currently being conducted on the medical benefits that biophotons have with regards to cancer, leukemia, and a number of other illnesses.
I agree with you about the previous answers though. Not sure why you recieved that sort of reaction for a simple inquiry. What's worse is that rather than doing any extensive research of their own they pulled up a wikipedia and purport to possess omnipotence on the subject. It's usually the loudest one in the room that knows the least in my experience. The funny thing is when I first started to look into biophotons a Google search pulled up a number of scholarly papers from dietetics, biotech, bioengineering, medicinal, and so forth. It's not for a lack of availability of the information, so my only guess is its source is indolence in their case. Either way, I hope I was able to shine some light on the subject.

Funnily enough Mercola's new leaf on life seems to be the Paleo diet, but it seems from time to time, he's still burps up hot air from his old quackish ways:
So if all of your food is cooked, your body is going to be deficient in the enzymes it needs to function properly. It will also be lacking biophotons.
Living raw foods contain the biophoton light energy your body needs. Every living organism emits biophotons. It is thought that the higher the level of light energy a cell emits, the greater its vitality and the potential for the transfer of that energy to the individual who consumes it. The more light a food is able to store, the more nutritious it is. Naturally grown fresh raw vegetables, for example, and sun-ripened fresh fruits, are rich in light energy. The capacity to store biophotons is therefore a measure of the quality of your food.
The greater your store of light energy from healthy raw foods (this should not be confused with your vitamin D status, which is produced by the sun on your skin), the greater the power of your overall electromagnetic field, and consequently the more energy is available for healing and maintenance of optimal health.
