Myth About Protein!
Even though we have explained the truth about protein in details in our health education program, seminars and literature, and its role in human nutrition have been known for nearly a century, there still rages a conflict and a state of confusion on the subject. I know this because when I tell people what I eat the first thing they ask is “where do you get your protein”?
The misconception and confusion are primarily encouraged by commercial business interests that are selling protein products, primarily the meat and dairy industries. Even the American government prates the lines that serve these well-established interests.
The truth will not down but ever keeps rising to fuel the fire of this controversy.
To start, I would like to dismiss some of the widespread myths about protein.
MYTH #1: We must have meat for best health. The argument goes that the best source for protein is meat inasmuch as it has all the necessary amino acids in a very assimilable form. Even well-known nutritionist (in so-called health food circles) have gone on record as stating the more nearly the composition of the flesh is to human flesh the more wholesome it is for us. Of course there was never a better argument made for cannibalism than this!
The “we must have meat argument” is obviously good for the meat-packing industry and it is deliberately absurd, bizarre, meaningless and illogical – The argument obviously destroys itself. Because, if this were true every species could live from other animals and best of all from its own kind! The fact that almost all animals, including humans, do not have the anatomical and physiological equipment to make good use of any kind of meat is conveniently overlooked or denied. Cattle, rabbits, elephants, horses, etc. are herbivores and are equipped only for a leaf/grass diet. There are a class of graminivores, primarily birds, that thrive on grains of various grasses. There are animals that thrive on fruits. And so it goes. Every animal has a class of food to which it is adapted.
Humans are anatomically and physiologically adapted to a diet of fruits, vegetables and nuts and can beneficially use certain seeds and legumes under certain conditions. The truth to this is denied by commercial interests and their “scientific” apologists. (Somebody who argues to defend or justify a particular doctrine or ideology) An educated population would bring an and to their niche in the market place.
Not even carnivores thrive on an all meat diet. For humans, meat is a pathogenic and deficient food. Meats are by far the worst. They trigger the autoimmune reactions that cause arthritis. In addition, and worse still, they stimulate your kidneys to remove calcium from your blood, casing osteoporosis.This report will explain some reasons why.
MYTH #2: We must have all the essential amino acids at every meal. This argument is based on two premises:
A] That the body does not store protein or amino acids and
B] that, in order to synthesize protein, no more protein can be created by the body than the amount creatable as determined by the least bountiful supply of the essential amino acids. Every protein link requires so much of such and such amino acids and if any are missing from the meal, no proteins requiring these amino acids can be synthesized. This argument too, is absurd and meaningless. It is not necessary to point out with details that man, animals fast for lengthy periods, and that, instead of suffering protein deficiency, the end of the fast finds them WITH RESTORED PROTEIN BALANCE!
Myth #3: A high protein diet is helpful and the body requires about one gram of protein for each two pounds of body weight. Obviously, the body needs only what it needs and can use no more than what it needs. This “just right” amount of protein has been determined to be about one gram for each five pounds of body weight for mature humans of normal disposition. The one gram for each two pounds of body weight is about what a baby requires for maintenance and rapid growth. Clearly, adults do not require as much. The belief in a high protein diet or that we cannot get too much of it is a source of highly pathological (relating to disease or arising from disease ) eating practices among Americans and other people of the world.
It is appropriate that we have this little booklet/report to set aright the attitude of those whom it touches in this most crucial aspect of human nutrition.
Let us dig a little deeper and find out what protein really is!
What is Protein?
In 1938, a chemist named Mulder isolated a substance containing nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and some other incidental elements (some proteins also contain sulphur, iron, phosphorus, or iodine). He claimed this was the basis of life, and named it “Protein” – meaning “First Rank”. Protein is everywhere, continuously, and simultaneously present throughout the whole of creation. There is protein in every living thing. The human body is 70% water and about 15% protein, say about 20 to 25 pounds of protein, of which almost half can be lost without serious danger.
All proteins are composed of Amino Acids (also known as the building blocks of protein). Each plant or animal must highly structure its own protein. Plants can synthesize amino acids from air, earth and water, but animals are dependent on plant protein, either directly by eating the plant, or indirectly by eating an animal, which has eaten the plant.
Protein is a food element, which is useless and poisonous to the human organism unless it is broken down into its fundamental amino acids, which are the nutrients from which we must elaborate our own protein.

This happens so often that it’s worth repeating it! When I tell people what I eat, they always ask me, “Where do you get your protein? My response is always the same. From Fruits. Fruits contain amino acids rather than proteins. Even so, fruits contain very little amino acids. So, how are we to get enough protein from fruits alone?
If you are a member of the Super Health program I ask you to reread your lesson on this topic. You are the creature of commercial interests that promote meat, poultry, fish, eggs, cheeses, beans, and so forth. They’ve created a myth about protein requirements so they can cash in on it. We have so much disease in our country because people take the protein myth seriously.
When you eat as much protein as the average American, about 105 grams daily, and you’re eating it mostly coagulated and deaminized as most protein consumption is, there might be justification on the one hand for so much consumption if there were no other way to get our protein. Even so, what we’re eating is soil for bacterial putrefaction more so than for our bodies and much of our pathology is traceable to heavy protein consumption. Especially Animal Protein.
When you eat fruits you get healthier. Your use of amino acids in the diet becomes total and putrefaction is nil. Your cells live twice as long, for this reason protein replacement is less than half? Even the group that set the RDAs admits that 30 grams daily on the conventional diet would be sufficient. So, if a fruitarian got 10 grams daily, he’d probably receive plenty. On the other hand, a fruitarian diet of average fruits furnishes about 30 grams daily. Living amino acids will not putrefy nearly as fast as dead proteins as in cooked foods. Hence your animal protein foods give you disease while fruits give you health. Those old stink gases and feces are evidence of protein decomposition in the intestinal tract.
Fruits on the average contain just over one percent amino acids with their water content, about the same as a mother’s milk for a rapidly-growing baby. Can you, as an adult, insist you need more than a growing baby?
Questioned Asked. In saying that we should eat the fruit diet the question came up that I’m not taking into account the different metabolic types. Because there are humans who have to take meat while others might get along on fruits. How do I settle this with the recognition of the difference between all humans?
And here is my ANSWER: Yes, humans are all different, yet they are all alike. This old hoax about what is one person’s boon is another’s bane is a lot of malarkey and a bunch of BS. One man can hold his liquor and another literally has fits with a few drinks. That does not mean liquor is a boon to one though it is most obviously a bane to the other. Humans have differing levels of pathology and vitality. The differences are along these lines, not any other.
There is only one type of metabolism among humans: we might label it the human metabolism. I read anatomy and physiology books. And they don’t teach one thing about different metabolic types nor anatomical types or different physiological types.
The way I read it, it seems we all have two eyes, two hands, a single mouth, a tongue that looks the same, glands that secrete the same digestive juices, the same type of esophagus, the same stomach action, the same intestinal parts, the same absorptive mechanisms, the same type of liver, the same type of needs. When you get down to it there are no physiological differences whatsoever. This business about different metabolisms is the figment of some smart Alec’s imagination to profit in some way, usually to sell some kind of supplement. Or, organizations that are looking to market a lotion a potion, a powder or a pill, a gadget or a gimmick and the other industries that market animal products.
The affects of too much protein: How much protein do we need? The daily Recommended Allowance has been set at 56grams daily for a man weighing 154 pounds, and 46 grams daily for a woman weighing 128 pounds. The truth is that we actually need only a maximum of 20 to 25 grams for the average man. Too much protein can actually be detrimental to your health.
The fact that there is a significant increase in the excretion of nitrogen after consuming protein rich foods indicates that the body has a smaller need. Excess protein involves a needless waste of vital energy for the system must rid itself of the putrefying excess.
If your protein intake is too large, the surplus is beyond the metabolic capacity of the body. Excessive use of protein causes autointoxication due to the overabundant amount of ammonia and other end products of protein putrefaction and decomposition. This results in a great deal of stress on all the organs of the body, especially the kidneys and liver. The presence of an excessive amount of these end products requires an expenditure of a great deal of energy for their elimination.
When nerve energy is used up or is below normal, the functions of secretion and excretion are impaired. Secretions are necessary to digestion and assimilation. If these functions are impaired and if excretion is insufficient, waste products remain in the system and impair functioning.
If the proteins which are consumed are of a low order (as in flesh foods) or if they are denatured or altered in any way (as in cooking), this means that the body will not be able to make much use of them in the formation of blood plasma proteins and the formation of hormones and enzymes for which amino acids are so essential.
(According to Wikipedia, Blood plasma is the pale yellow liquid component of blood that normally holds the blood cells in whole blood in suspension; this makes plasma the extracellular matrix of blood cells. It makes up about 55% of the body’s total blood volume. It is the intravascular fluid part of extracellular fluid (all body fluid outside of cells). It is mostly water (up to 95% by volume), and contains dissolved proteins (6–8%) (i.e.—serum albumins,globulins, and fibrinogen), glucose, clotting factors, electrolytes (Na+, Ca2+, Mg2+, HCO3−, Cl−, etc.), hormones, and carbon dioxide (plasma being the main medium for excretory product transportation). Plasma also serves as the protein reserve of the human body. It plays a vital role in an intravascular osmotic effect that keeps electrolytes in balanced form and protects the body from infection and other blood disorders.)
When you take protein into your system, your body first breaks down the protein into amino acids. These amino acids then go into your bloodstream. However, the cells are only capable of absorbing so much. They are programmed to take into their cells X amount of amino acids and build it into the cell protein. Enzymes break down surplus amino acids into simpler compounds so that you can eliminate them. Excess protein overloads the liver and overworks the kidneys. The kidneys have to do the work of eliminating toxic protein byproducts and the liver has to help prepare them for this elimination. In the process you lose energy and have contaminated body tissues and fluids. The end results are pathologies (the processes of a disease, observable either with the naked eye or by microscopy, or, at a molecular level, as inferred from biochemical tests) as we see today in America.
