(Natural News) Vegans and vegetarians don’t get enough protein – or so people think. In a recent article published online, internal medicine specialist Milton Mills blasted claims from dietitians that ditching meat means missing out on protein, an essential macronutrient.
Plant cells contain protein, Mills argued. In fact, plant-based foods like grains, legumes and nuts are concentrated sources of plant proteins. Therefore, if someone is eating a balanced diet that includes these foods, it is almost impossible to become protein-deficient, he adds.
The Facts:Another study has emerged showing that plant-based diets not only give endurance athletes an edge when it comes to heart health, performance, and recovery, but it also satisfies their nutritional needs.
Reflect On:With so many examples and so much science showing how a vegan diet is nothing but beneficial for our own biology as well as the planet, why do some choose to not acknowledge it or claim that this information is false?
It’s concerning how so much focus is put on transitioning from fossil fuels to clean energy technology, and absolutely no attention is paid to animal agriculture. Everybody on the planet could drive electric cars and all industries could use clean energy technology and that still would not even compare to the environmental impact of everyone adopting a plant-based diet. Due to the fact that approximately 80 percent of the Amazon rainforest is destroyed for animal agriculture, reducing our meat and dairy production would provide us with an opportunity to restore Earth’s lungs. CO2 has been much higher in the past, but deforestation was never been this bad.
