Formerly, people were convinced that they had absolutely need protein from red meat, but we now know that this is not the case.
There are many other foods that can provide all the proteins we need.
Nuts ; almond, pecan Grenoble etc.
The grains; sunflower, sesame pumpkin quinoa, amaranth, etc.
The germination; Red clover alfalfa sunflower seed, wheat grass
And in a wide variety of fruits and vegetables; Avocado, Asparagus, Olive, Spinach, cucumber, parsley, seaweed, Kale, Garlic, Cabbage Celery, Lenses Papaya, Apricot, Banana, Cantaloupe, Cherry, Grape, Plum, Coconut, Strawberry.
What brings red meat (not to mention coronary thrombosis caused by excess fat) they are things that common sense certainly prohibit us to put on our shopping list for example.
Excess protein can cause tumors and calculations and contributing to obesity. Indigestible waste that clog up our digestive system, growth hormones used to fatten cattle and which have been shown what can cause a lowering of the age of menstruation in girls, cause impotence in men and change our sexual behavior.
Antibiotics used to prevent infections in animals and that confer antibiotic resistance we inherit from eating meat.
Coliform bacteria which, because of splashes of feces at the time of slaughter, contaminate meat. (In-state US) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that each year twenty thousand people are infected with these bacteria coliform and suffer from bloody diarrhea, fever or cramps, around seven percent of these should hospitalization, and forty to sixty percent, mostly children, die.
In conclusion, the Americans absolutely not benefit the fifteen cattle that each consumes on average during their lifetime, according to the Ministry of Agriculture of-state (USDA)
The Protein Myth
I know that the subject protein is highly controversial. Everyone seems to have their own opinion as to how much protein to eat or not eat. Experts discuss endlessly, we bury in science avalanches, numbers, statistics.
One fact, however, is established by numerous scientific research; the close link between the consumption of concentrated protein and heart disease, blood pressure, cancer, arthritis, gout, ulcers, and a number of other diseases. But we limit ourselves to the effects of protein on weight and energy level.
Proteins are the most complex components of food, and those whose assimilation and utilization by the body are the most complicated. Protein digestion involves a greater expenditure of energy than any other food.
The average time of passage of food (including fruit) throughout the gastrointestinal tract is between twenty-five and thirty hours. When we eat meat that duration is than doubled. Therefore, it seems logical to infer that have eaten more protein, less available energy for other bodily functions, such as the elimination of toxic waste.
So much has been said about proteins that can doubt that this subject again become clear one day. What you should know is that we do not have much need of had us believe. First, the human body 70 for recycle 100 of its protein wastes.
70 100! In addition, the body loses that around twenty to three grams of protein per day, stool, urine, perspiration. To replace twenty-three grams of protein, you only consume around 700 grams of protein per MONTH.
Most people eat more, and eat some protein at each meal. The daily protein requirement is estimated at fifty-six grams and this figure leaves a comfortable safety margin. Excessive protein consumption imposes a significant strain on the body, which then tries to get rid of these surpluses.
It is a terrible waste of that energy so precious and needed to lose weight. When the daily needs are met twenty-three grams, the rest becomes waste that accumulate in your body, and are superfluous kilos.
In fact, proteins are no more or less important than any other food components. It has made us to believe that they were essential, but that is wrong. The components of foods that make up a typical meal are always the same; vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, fatty acids, amino acids etc. They are all important!
They are used together. Isolate one as more important than others, is to misunderstand the physiological and biological needs of the organism.
The protein myth (continued)
The debate on proteins would not be complete if we do not abordions the issue of meat consumption, as in Western countries, meat is generally considered the best source of protein.
Proteins are made up in part of the amino acids contained in foods. The only influence of protein you consume on the ones you make to the effectiveness of the use of these amino acids in the body.
The idea that just eat a slice of beef pork or chicken so that it turns into protein in your body is absurd. Animal proteins are animal and do not become human proteins. We must understand how amino acids if you want to better understand the role of proteins.
The body can not assimilate such proteins they are consumed. They must first be digested and broken down into amino acids they contain. The body can then use these amino acids to form proteins needed. Therefore, the nutritional value of proteins depends on the amino acids they contain.
All nutrients are derived from the plant world; animals assimilate proteins but they never make neither create new sources of protein, ie all eight essential amino acids.
Plants can synthesize amino acids present in the air, land and water, but animals, including humans, depend on plant protein, either directly by eating plants or indirectly by eating, the animals that have eaten the plant. There is no meat in the essential amino acids that the animal has extracts of plants, and that man can also be extracted from plants.
This is why animals have very strong all the protein they need. They are from the large number of amino acids found in plants that form their food. This is also why, except in cases of absolute necessity, carnivorous animals usually do not eat other carnivores. They instinctively they prefer those that feed on plants.
There are a total twenty-three differential amino acids. They are all important. In fact, fifteen of them can be produced by the body, and the other eight are to be called "critical. If you regularly eat fruit, vegetables, dry fruits, seeds or roots, your body receives all the amino acids it needs to form the necessary proteins.
In fact, you are not likely to suffer from protein deficiency. Do you know someone who suffers from a deficiency of protein? Neither do I.
Our body has infinite wisdom they have perfectly how to ensure sufficient protein production. How could it be otherwise? The organization has a remarkable mechanism which guarantees that such vital element that protein is produced regularly and abundantly. This is the subject amino acid.
The protein myth (continued)
Through digestion of food protein and recycling of waste, the body has all amino acids circulating in the lymphatic and circulatory systems. When the body needs amino acids, the withdrawals from the blood or lymph. These amino acids are available what I call a reserve. The reserve of amino acids resembles an open bank twenty-four hours on twenty-four.
Liver and cells continuously makes deposits and withdrawals amino acid, depending on the concentration of amino acids in the blood. When the amino acids are numerous, liver absorbs and safekeeping until they are needed. As the amino acid levels in the blood drop due to withdrawals by cells, liver recirculates some quantities of amino acids.
The cells also have the option stored amino acids. If the rate of amino acids in the blood suddenly fall or if other cells need a specific amino acid, the cells also recirculate their amino acids. Most cells in the body synthesize more protein than is necessary for their survival, so they can turn their amino acids in proteins and make deposits in the amino acid pool.
One must understand the operation of this reserve to realize that proteins are not necessary in the diet.
The reserve of amino acids exist, and if you understand it, you can free yourself of the protein myth. Many studies show that it is not necessary to consume protein every meal or even every day.
Research by ES nasset and described in the World Journal of Nutrition and Dietetics indicates that "the body can set up any missing amino acids in its powerful supply in its resserves, provided that the food is varied enough)
As for the eight amino acids that the body needs to extract from external sources, and although fruits and vegetables contain the largest number, specific fruits and vegetables can make them all, they are; carrots, bananas, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, red cabbage, peas, potatoes, squash, sweet potatoes and tomatoes .
Moreover all nuts, sunflower and sesame seeds, peanuts and beans also contain these eight amino acids. The amino acids used by the body are much more numerous in plants in the meat.
Albert Einstein quote: "It seems that the vegetarian lifestyle by its purely physical effect on the human temperament would most beneficial influence on the large part of humanity"
The question to ask is; Is the human being designed to eat meat? All data we have indicate that there is no nutritional, physiological or psychological justification for asserting that we must eat meat. This deserves some explanation.
Let us first consider the nutritional aspects of the meat. As we have seen, the essential criterion for judging a food is undoubtedly its energy value. Or meats provide no energy.
Energy has shot carbohydrates which are virtually nonexistent in meat. In other words, the meat does not provide fuel to the body. Fats can provide energy, but must undergo a longer and less efficient digestion process and fats are converted into energy when the resserves of the body carbohydrates are exhausted.
We must understand that body fat did not all come eating fat. When consumes an excessive amount of carbohydrate, they are converted into fat and stored in the body. Thus, the human body may retain and use of fats without the need to provide it with large amounts in the food.
Therefore, may also have to consider the fat deposits as a hydrate or carbon bank deposits and withdrawals shall be effected according to our need. The fat used depends, also in the consumption of carbohydrates.
It should also consider the problem of fibers. In all areas of health, we note the importance of fiber in the diet. Among other benefits, fiber helps prevent constipation and hemorrhoids. Or the meat has substantially no fiber content.
Now watching the availability of amino acids in the meat. ? An amino acid chain can contain fifty-one has two hundred thousand amino acids. Amino acids are quite fragile.
The heat of cooking coagulates or destroyed many that can no longer be used by the body. These useless amino acids become toxic, which compound the weight problem, increasing the chores of the body, and deprives us of energy.
For that amino acids are helpful to our body we should eat raw meat, as do carnivorous animals. Hardly anyone eats raw meat. Meat is also very rich in saturated fats. These fats can not under any circumstances provide energy. Therefore the point of view of nutrition, meat presents very little benefit or even none.
Now examine the physiological aspects of the consumption of meat. The teeth of carnivores are all long, sharp and pointed. We have molars for chewing food. However, the jaw of a carnivore moves only from the bottom up in order to shred and bite meat. Our jaws move sideways to chew.
Saliva carnivores is highly acidic and adapted for digestion of animal protein; it does not contain ptyalin, an enzyme that digestion of starches. Our saliva, on the contrary is very alkaline and contains ptyalin for digests starches.
The stomach of carnivores is a simple round pocket that secret ten times more hydrogen than the stomach of a non-carnivore acid. Our stomach, for its part is oblong, complex structure and a dual duodenum. The intestines of carnivores measure three times the length of their trunk, and are intended to rapid evacuation of food waste.
Our intestines measure twelve times the length of our trunk and are intended to preserved food long enough for all nutrients can be extracted. The liver of a carnivore is capable of removing ten times more uric acid as the liver of a non carnivore.
Our liver manages to eliminate small amounts of uric acid. Uric acid is a toxic substance extreme that can completely disrupt the organization. Unlike carnivores and omnivores most of the man does not have the urase enzymes to break down uric acid. Urine carnivores is acidic.
Ours is alkaline. The language is rough carnivores. Ours is smooth. Our hands are perfectly designed to pick the fruit on the trees, and not to tear the entrails of a dead animal carcasses, as are the legs and claws of carnivores. Not a single anatomical faculty and humans indicates that it would be destined to torn bite and grind the meat for food. Finally the man is not even psychologically equipped for the consumption of meat.
Did it happen to walk in a beautiful forest, by filling your lungs clean air and listening to the birds sing? Perhaps you have seen a squirrel over before you. In this case what was your first impulse upon seeing the squirrel? Have you been wanting to jump for the capture, the tearing of your teeth, and swallow, crunching his bowels, his skin, his bones, his flesh and drinking his blood?
Then lick your lips with delight by thanking the chance to keep you take this path that allowed you to devour this delicious animal? Or your first inclination when he saw it was the squirrel raving about beauty? I wonder how many there would be vegetarian on Earth if for a steak if you had to kill her hands a defenseless beef, cut it up and cut it out.
