What advice would you give someone who wanted to go raw vegan but had doubts about the protein level?
I actually make sure I don’t get TOO much protein, why? Because too much protein in our bodies, especially from animal sources results in an overacidic environment forcing the body to leach calcium from the bones & teeth to ‘buffer’ the acidity. The resulting conditions are arthritis, osteoporosis, tooth-decay & cancer to name a few. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends 10% and under is more than sufficient to
meet our daily protein requirements. There isn’t even a medical terminology for “protein deficiency”!
There is absolutely no need for animal products in one’s diet, plant foods contain all 8 essential amino acids required for optimal health.
Plants are the only foods eaten by elephants, horses, and hippos – do you see them having a problem growing all the muscle, bone, and tissue they need?
