The Protein Myth

It is a myth that high protein diets are good for us.  The average American diet includes high fat proteins (red meat, milk, cheese, dairy, eggs).  Americans have been convinced that these types of proteins are daily essentials.  However, most of us are unaware that protein studies have been based on early rat experiments.  Rats require about 3 1/2 times as much protein as a human; humans eating excessive amounts of proteins can seriously damage their health.

When our diet contains more proteins than we need the excess either adheres to arteries or is broken down in the liver and excreted through the kidneys.   This process can cause organs to work harder, excrete more water and lose calcium.

Better dietary sources of daily protein should include: raw seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame), raw nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, macadamias etc..) beans, grains and small amounts of yogurt, fish, lamb and chicken.

We need to regain control of our health by scrutinizing purchased food products.  Daily uses of chemicalized and processed foods deteriorate our health.

High blood pressure, breast cancer, diabetes, cancer and other diseases are built through the years, from a poor diet.  Change is difficult but a few changes can make a difference.

Change that matters:

1. STOP reading the nutritional facts and START reading the ingredients.
2. If your food contains dyes (red, blue, yellow) or artificial ingredients, put it back on the shelf.
3. MSG (monosodium glutamate) and hydrogenated oils, can speed your heart and damage arteries.
4. Aluminum – affects the brain
5. White flour or refined with sugar – breaks down the immune system and paves the way for disease.
6. Soda – can cause stomach and bone damage.
7. Most fast food

Making these few changes can start you on the way to a healthier body.

Our body is designed to digest and handle many different foods even if they are not good for us.  However, a steady diet of chemical laden foods is destroying our health.
