first myth is that our diet must contain animal-derived foods for
the proper development of our bodies and brains.
truth is that large numbers of people both alive today and in past
eras live or have lived long and productive lives with little or no
meat or other animal-based foods.
Factors to consider are:
Too little fruit and vegetable
in the diet to counterbalance the effect of protein acid
production may lead to osteoporosis (bone thinning).
- Change in our consumption in the recent past
- The myth of the so-called Palaeolithic diet
- Are animal derived LC PUFAs are essential for
brain development and maintenance?
- What amount and sort of protein do we need?
Are animal proteins better than plant based proteins?
