Q&A – VEGANISM, CAUSES OF CANCER, HEALTH AND LONGEVITY
Q: Is there anything wrong with lean proteins like fish, chicken, lean red meat, etc? Our primal ancestors ate these!
A: The fat content is not what worries me the most, but it is the animal protein. It is one of the most destructive causes of cancer. It tends to link to our DNA, and generate cancerous processes, which show their mark at ages later than our ‘primal’ ancestors’s lifespan. I did not invent it, thousands of researches have done it before. In fact, one of our faculty’s main concentrations is cancerous and genetic research. The numbers speak for themselves.
Q: Don’t age and longevity has much more to do with genetic factors than diet? I always thought that including complete proteins in your diet will not have any negative effect on this.
A: Genetics does play an important role, but as you know, genes can be either OFF or ON, and animal protein certainly helps your to have them on the latter. Even someone with the less luckiest genes could gain a significant boost in terms of health and longevity by good nutrition, and could easily outrun a ‘super-gened’ meat eater.
The term ‘complete protein’ is not up to date. It has been used in the past, to test ‘protein quality’, but its quality was actually tested relative to rodents’ protein profile needs. This is a ridiculous myth, which the bodybuilding field seems to worship over and over, for no reason. I had a period myself in my life of bodybuilding and powerlifting, and after my recent years in the science fields, I can safely say that the average bodybuilder (even natural bodybuilders) is a walking ticking bomb. If I had to re-gain my muscle mass, I would definitely do it under a vegan diet. Besides that, Broccoli consists double the amount of protein than steaks, per calorie. 100 calories of the average steak consists around 5-6g protein, while 100 calories of broccoli consists around 11-12g. Your body is able to get all the essential amino acid from a plant based diet.
A funny thing happened between the states and Asia. People from specific areas in Southeast Asia, whose culture average lifespan is a bit more than 100, showed a significant decrease in lifespan over the years, after moving to the united states. In fact, their healthspan and lifespan were a mirror of the average American ones, which resulted in grandfathers going to the funerals of their beloved grandchildren.
Q: But I wanna get a six pack! Is it even achievable without consuming meat?
A: Certainly. How to get a six pack fast ? It is only a matter of a low percentage of body fat. You can even achieve a six pack without even training at all, although it will be much easier that way. Taking the life of an animal-food-celibacy can only help you to achieve your goals in terms of looking, since it is much lower in fat, and thus directly help you to achieve these goals.
I do not want you to dogmatically follow this knowledge. Do your own research, and reach your own decision. Our health is not a joke, and taking a good care of it is an essential key of a healthy living.
