Myth About Protein!
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.
The Problem with animal or cooked/processed PROTEIN
Heating protein results in the formation of enzyme-resistant bonds. This means that the proteins cannot be broken down into their component parts which are amino acids, and therefore cannot be properly utilized by the body. In other word: the body cannot make practical and effective use of the amino acids.
A strand of hair, balled up, can easily be unraveled. But hold that ball of hair over a flame, for just a moment, and it will “melt” to itself, and can never be unraveled. Enzyme-resistant bonds formed in the hair, due to the exposure to just a moment of heat.
Think of an egg being dropped onto a hot frying pan. The entire chemistry of the egg changes once it hits that heat. The protein is denatured when heated, changed to a form that is unusable by the body. That fried egg can never be put back into its original form. Enzyme-resistant bonds form every time proteins are heated, and the proteins, thus ingested, are recognized by the body as foreign invaders, instead of valued nutrients.
The body attacks these proteins; with white blood cells, histamines, various immune responses, lymph gland activity, and a generalized inflammatory response indicative of toxicity.
But there are more issues with heating proteins than initially meets the eye. During normal digestion, proteins are broken down in the intestines into their component parts, amino acids, before entering the lymphatic system and then the blood stream.
Proteins are split into proteoles, proteoles to polypeptides, polypeptides to di-peptides, etc. But due to the influence of cooking and the creation of enzyme-resistant bonds, heated proteins cannot be broken down fully. Polypeptides enter the bloodstream and lymphatic vessels through the portals from the intestine known as lacteals.
The lacteals are normally tiny openings that exhibit profound discriminatory ability when it comes to the passage of substances from the intestines.
Over time, the lacteals become damaged; made lax from exposure to all these large polypeptide molecules that are being forced through openings too small to handle them, and as a result, become less able to discriminate nutrient from invader.
Thus, another negative outcome from eating heated protein is known as “leaky gut syndrome” (LGS.) There are a variety of auto-immune conditions associated with LGS, including but not limited to several different types of arthritis, lupus, allergies, asthma, kidney disorders, and a variety of other conditions.
If that weren’t enough, there’s more. It has been demonstrated that the sulfur that is a part of several different amino acids splits from the amino acid when heated.
This not only renders the amino acids ineffective, but it wreaks havoc with many of our organ systems. When the sulfur is broken off from the amino acids methionine and cystiene, stimulation to the adrenal glands results, which in turn stimulate the thyroid.
The adrenals and thyroid eventually “crash” from the continual stimulation of cooked foods, resulting in often sudden and dramatic weight gain, low energy, foul body odor, rapid hair loss, and many other symptoms so common among people eating the mainstream Western diet.
Chronic fatigue syndrome, cancer, thyroid dysfunction, kidney disease, various digestive disorders, and a variety of serious health conditions are directly related to the consumption of heated Protein, fat, and carbohydrates
Then next time you are tempted by the lures of cooked foods, weigh the benefits against the deficits. There is no right or wrong on this issue, no good or bad, but there will always be consequences. Choose wisely, and choose the actions that will result in the health consequences that you most desire.
If you’re Still thinking of cooking your food? It may be time to reconsider.

When you eat fruits you get healthier. Your use of amino acids in the diet becomes total and putrefaction is zero. 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 protein foods give you disease while fruits give you health. Those old stinko 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 nonsense 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 aleck’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.
