The daily protein requirements for humans is much less than most people think. For example, mother's milk contains less than 6% of its calories from protein. On the other hand, excess protein in the diet is very harmful and is linked to many different serious diseases, especially when the protein is derived from animal sources. Now growing children, and active athletic individuals do require more protein, but they also require more of everything else too, so they must simply eat larger and more frequent meals.

The bottom line is that a whole unprocessed foods, vegan (or near vegan) diet is the optimal diet for health and longevity for the human species. Not processed sweets, oils, and grain products such as bread and pasta mind you, but rather unprocessed vegetables, fruits, legumes and nuts - especially salads. When you eat this way and stop insulting your body with the toxic typical western diet, your body is able to heal itself from whatever ails it. I HIGHLY recommend reading the book "Eat to Live" by Joel Fuhrman MD - you can read an excellent review of this wonderful book here at VegSource. Pay particular attention to the testimonials at the bottom of the review - Dr F has done his homework! He routinely cures patients with obesity, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, lupus, migraines, hypoglycemia and more using aggressive nutritional regimens (typically getting his patients off all drug medications at the same time). This extensively researched and scientifically sound book has dramatically changed my life/health for the better. No more asthma or bi-polar disorder for me!
