THE PROTEIN MYTH BY HARVEY DIAMOND

In 1970 when I first started studying the subject of health, the #1
question asked of those who upgraded their diet with more living food was,
“Where do you get your protein?” Today, over 40 years later, the #1
question is, “Where do you get your protein?” One of the most successful
propaganda campaigns ever imposed upon the people of the world is the one that has convinced them that without eating some form of animal product, they will suffer from a protein deficiency. And that is a great big, fat-laden, enormously profitable lie that has been swallowed hook, line, and pork chop. The lie was born in the 1920s, based on studies that concluded that rats fared better on protein from animals than from plants. So the results of the studies proclaimed that protein from animals is superior to protein from plants—for humans! The myth was ignited, and it still burns today. Did you know that in the 1920s there were 12 food groups? Oddly, the Basic Twelve revolved around four diet plans that were structured to apply to different income brackets.

     So protein could be obtained from the legumes and nuts category for 
lower-income individuals or from the meat category for those who could
afford higher-priced protein sources. Prestige was attached to animal
products; they were portrayed as preferred foods for the “upper” class. They were now “elitist foods”. Long forgotten, and extremely important to bear in mind, is that it was never stated that plant protein was inferior to animal protein, only less expensive!

     The only way to understand the truth of the matter is to rely, not on
studies that can prove any premise if there’s enough money, but on the most reliable tool of all: commonsense. What animal do you think of as the strongest of all? What animals have been used for centuries because of their strength and endurance; the ones that can lift heavy loads or plow fields for hours on end without tiring? Elephants, oxen, water buffalo, camels, horses, mules. All of these, indeed the most powerful animals on Earth, eat only plant foods. Strict carnivores sleep over twenty hours a day. That’s why you won’t ever see a tiger pulling a plow. An African water buffalo can weigh nearly a ton. They ripple with muscles and are incredibly strong. A bull elephant can weigh more than ten tons, carry astonishing loads and pull trees out of the ground. They live on grass and leaves.

     Did you ever see the movie Gorillas in the Mist about the silverback
gorilla? These impressive beasts are three times the size of a man but thirty times as strong. Their muscle development is astounding. They eat bamboo leaves and fruit. How do all these animals develop such imposing muscular strength without ever eating protein? Ever wonder about that? We love eating cows for protein, and it’s supposed to be the ideal protein for us. Ever see a cow eating a steak? What does a cow eat to produce all that protein? Grass and So what’s the answer? Obviously, all animals, including human beings, need protein to live, there’s no doubt about that. The same way elephants and water buffalos and gorillas obtain their protein is the way we humans can obtain ours. Protein is built from amino acids. That’s it, plain and simple. Amino acids build protein and are resplendent in the plant kingdom. That’s why an elephant or a gorilla has no protein deficiencies. They obtain all the amino acids they need from the source—the plant. 

 

    When you eat a piece of chicken it doesn’t magically turn into human protein; no more so than if you ate an animal’s liver would it go into your body and become part of your liver. An amino acid chain can have from 50 to 100,000 amino acids. They must be broken down, reassembled and built into human protein. You can get amino acids from meat, but we don’t eat meat raw, and the heating of amino acids destroys many of them and causes others to coagulate. Amino acids are delicate and affected by heat the same way other nutrients are. When a lion eats a zebra, the amino acids from the zebra are broken down and reassembled into lion protein. Fortunately for the lion, it is too dim-witted to figure out how to cook the zebra before eating it, so the amino acids remain intact. Ever notice that carnivorous animals don’t eat other carnivorous animals except under the most extreme circumstances? Why do you think meat-eating animals eat plant-eating animals? Plants can manufacture amino acids from air, soil and water; animals cannot. Animals either have to eat the plant directly for their amino acids or obtain them indirectly by eating an animal that has eaten the plant. Meat-eating animals instinctively eat animals that have eaten plants. And no matter which they eat, the plant or the animal, both are raw—no cooking.


Over the years, people have been thoroughly conditioned to automatically think of some kind of meat when the subject of protein comes up. The conditioning has been relentless and successful. It’s almost comical
to even suggest that someone would think of a fruit or vegetable salad for
protein over a steak or a hamburger. But I’ll tell you what, the amino acids
in a salad are a lot more bio-available than the amino acids in meat that have been deranged by heat. It may take you a while to overcome the
conditioning, but if you are looking for high-quality protein, which is the
same as saying high-quality amino acids, the finest and best source comes from living plant foods, not cooked animal foods. And that’s why a
silverback gorilla that eats no protein foods as such can pick you up and toss you across the street like a Frisbee.
