30 Bananas a Day!

Highlights:

"Industrial-scale meat production practices also have other problems and have been directly connected to: climate change, water and energy shortages, antibiotic overuse, farmland topsoil losses, and dead zones in our waterways from pesticide, fertilizer, and animal waste run-off.

While the human body is equipped to store excess carbohydrates and fats consumed, there is no place for the body to store excess protein. Instead, it is broken down and converted to carbs, fats, and to ammonia that is excreted in the kidney, where it can cause problems over time.

What a lot of people need to know is that you can easily get enough protein from plants, as most vegans do. We also have the choice to choose less meat, and meat from pasture-based, sustainable producers. But it’s also time to think systemically, and address our collective protein obsession by updating our nation’s dietary guidelines. And we’re far from alone in this belief.

In the lead up to this year’s new guidelines, the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC), an independent scientific body, has recommend shifting to more plant-based foods and less animal protein, citing extensive scientific evidence for benefits both for human health and the health of the environment."

Well, Yahoo news is well known for featuring an article telling you one thing, then featuring an other article telling you the exact opposite.  Today they had this dumb article about "meat cravings" and how if you don't eat meat you don't get enough nutrients.

Indeed, they sprout any old rubbish often in the form of a lists.

haha, it's true yahoo news is all over the place with their nutrition advice.
