Doctor's Note

This is the final video of a three-part series exploring the mechanism behind the spike of inflammation that follows within hours of a meal containing animal products. See The Leaky Gut Theory of Why Animal Products Cause Inflammation and The Exogenous Endotoxin Theory for parts one and two. Though this surge of inflammation can result from bacteria dead or alive, live bacteria can cause other problems—see, for example, MRSA in U.S. Retail Meat, Total Recall, Chicken Out of UTIs, and Toxic Megacolon Superbug. Saturated fat also appears to have other deleterious effects such as increasing the risk of heart disease (Blocking the First Step of Heart Disease) and shortening the lives of breast cancer survivors (Breast Cancer Survival, Butterfat, and Chicken). For more on the patronizing attitude that people can't handle dietary truths, check out my 13-part series on the dietary guidelines from last October that began with Dietary Guidelines: Corporate Guidance. That's just one of many video series. There are hundreds of other videos on more than a thousand topics for you to browse.

      Great video. What is the reference citing TLR2 and TLR4?

    • HemoDynamic, M.D.

      Reminds me of George Orwells Animal Farm.  Not that it is on the same premise but ‘Animalism’ has it’s way of getting back at humanism. 

      It’s as if they figured out that if they make themselves toxic and when we eat them, their flesh will cause our bodies to slowly attack and destroy ourselves, leading to a slow, painful, expensive demise.  Ingenious!

      Animalism has led to Carnism which leads to Deathism.

      Our physiologic knowledge is outstanding compared as to where it once was; eventhough it has a long way to go it is truly fascinating to understand these mechanisms of injury and disease.  Thank you Dr. G!

      I vote for Plantism leading to Healthism!

    • Stefan Juhl M.D.

      Lets face it – animal products is not for human consumption. RAW, boiled, fried, nuked – it will kill you!

      Wonder what the solution is – plants?

      • Stefan Juhl M.D.

        Aaaaaaarrrrgggghhh – still problems with creating my avatar – cant be because animalproducts is rotting my brain……..

    • Stefan Juhl M.D.

      Now we cant even cook the crap out of meat – is it time for warning signs on the hamburger and packages of meat as with cigarettes? Warning: May contain feces. May contain lethal bacteria. May contain Mad Cow disease (only a little risk though). Risk of endotoxemia – and some nasty pictures!

    • beccadoggie10

      Does inflammation take place in animal products rather than plant foods because the majority of the pollutants causing real harm are fat soluble and plant foods are closer to the base of the food chain?

      With my fractured spine, pain screams at me if I eat wheat, but even more if I consume anything with dairy or any meat including fish. Before I was injured I was not noticeably allergic to most foods. But now, it’s a whole new ball game. It is easy to stay clean with vegan when pain and inflammation blows up with the alternative life cycle.

      • Toxins

        There is no reason to avoid gluten unless one has an allergy or has a true sensitivity. http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-gluten-bad-for-you/ http://nutritionfacts.org/video/update-on-gluten/ Gluten in itself, and whole wheat foods are perfectly healthy and nutritious. In regards to inflammation, it is the result of endotoxins from the bacteria that has colonized the meat, as opposed to the contaminants themselves. Endotoxins cause an inflammatory response in humans.

        • Joe

          I think what beccadoggie was saying was that there is a reason for avoiding wheat, and thats the terrible pain after eating it.

          Its interesting that wheat, meat and dairy cause this response.

          beccadoggie – I hope you get well soon.

    That was awesome
    Makes me wonder ,Highest risk factor for atherosclerosis is high cholesterol. ie.saturated fat  which also promotes endotoxin absorption=inflammation promoting heart disease.(and many other aflictions)

  • Dssikes

    This makes me wonder if eating 1-2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder a day in my coffee is nutritionally wise? Obviously the flavenols are beneficial and outweigh the endotoxin costs, but if one is getting lots of phytonutrients otherwise might those extras from cocoa be ‘surplus’? Would you recommend reducing cocoa consumption?

  • JB

    How do the amounts of endotoxins in organic meats compare to the results you shared?

    • Stefan Juhl M.D.

      From a health perspective I think organic is as bad as conventional

  • AlexanderBerenyi

     Interesting.

    I wonder how does this relate to cultured foods with bacteria (e.g. yogurt, kefir, etc.– dairy or otherwise) and probiotics, which have been shown to be so beneficial for a healthy digestive system. Does this microbial load by its very nature cause some sort of inflammation? or is it exempt from the rule?

    • Coacervate

      The bacteria in the foods you mention, the gram positive bacteria, do not contain endotoxins.  they do well in aerated media and are “food-grade”.   the baddies are gram negatives that putrify meat, like to grow in anaerobic conditions found inside mince and present endotoxins.  We shouldn’t be too skeptical…think Botulism.

      This is a facinating line of research…I would say to critics (not you Alexander) that
      1.  Nutrition facts is a resource that you might like to support with more facts and …
      2.  All studies are flawed, some studies are useful.  These are useful

      these continuing investigations are forming a body of work that portends real hope for a lot of people (and the critters they process for food).  Thanks for this fantastic resource…this is like journal club only Dr. G does the hard part!  I can’t wait for the next installment.

      • Steven Gold

        What about fish? Do fish contain bacterial endotoxins?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/KUSZH4JCJXBWTORBG5T2XTQ5RI Massimo

    What about saturated plant fats, such as those in tropical fats (palm, palm kernel, coconut)? Often the advocates of a plant-based diet (to which I do belong, being a long-term vegan) overlook the widespread presence of these fats – they are present in virtually every processed food. This overlook is, to me, a serious problem in addressing diet-related issues.

    • Stefan Juhl M.D.

      Hi Massimo. If you really want to eat healthy it is not enough to be vegan (a diet of cola, chips, white bread and beer is vegan). I think you have to avoid processed food entirely – the best advice is therefore whole food, plantbased (and no processed food) diet.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/KUSZH4JCJXBWTORBG5T2XTQ5RI Massimo

        Hi Stefan,
        that is exactly my point. I consume only whole foods, practically nothing processed, and mostly organic. My question was about whether saturated fats from plant (tropical oils) do have a similar effect as those from animals, which I suspect being the case.

            Hemo,
            I`m desperate – do we agree that wine is vegan, minimal processed, at least not harmfull in moderate amounts?

            Well off to the neighbours! (its 5 o`clock in Denmark)

            ;-)

          • Stefan Juhl M.D.

            p.m. !!!

          • HemoDynamic, M.D.

            Yes, Red wine has lots of phytonutrients.  I have been in Cardiology for twenty years now and have seen multiple studies showing that up to two ounces of hard alcohol, 2 beers, 2 glasses of wine (any kind) is beneficial for our hearts and even reduces all cause mortality (ACM).  The ACM my have confounding variables because people that are that disciplined usually are healthier in general.
            The old saying in Cardiology is “Alcoholics don’t die of Heart Attacks”. . .they die of cardiomyopathies and liver failure.

            Enjoy!

            I was in Denmark in the Summer of 1984.  An absolutely beautiful place in the Summer.

          • HemoDynamic, M.D.

            When I was there I remember the food:  Breakfast was a soft boiled egg that we used the egg stands and cracked the shell with a spoon and scooped out the cooked white and warm creamy yolk, and Hearty Pumpernickel bread with fresh butter.  Lunch was bread with cheese and tomatoes, beer and wine.  Dinner: lots of potatoes with butter, some veggies and eel for the meat.  To drink, of course beer and wine and usually some Johnny Walker Scotch.  Port for dessert. 

            Clearly I wasn’t vegan back then.  I didn’t even know there were such weirdo’s ;-{}

            My point was to illustrate peoples lack of knowledge. Still dont care what the think (or say).

    • http://www.DonForresterMD.com/ Don Forrester MD

      The saturated fats a family that varies a bit depending on the number of carbon atoms typically either 5,12, 14, 16 or 18. The body handles these similarly although studies suggest some differences. What is clear that they are all calorically dense foods which contribute to obesity. We don’t “need” them… we need to consume omega3 and omega6 unsaturated fatty acids. Also saturated fats often travel with other natural (such as cholesterol and animal protein) see…http://nutritionfacts.org/video/plant-protein-preferable/ and unnatural compounds( pcbs, endocrine disrupters, pesticides) see… http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dioxins-in-the-food-supply/ which cause other problems and are associated with food borne illnesses. I would recommend applying the precautionary principle and avoiding. Eating whole foods and avoiding foods with labels avoids many problems.

    • GSH

      OK i got it. No, doesn’t even compare to a nice bottle with dreaded sulfites. 

  • Harel B

    Ok, so another set of studies pointing away from  animal consumption. But for those of us who are vegan, and who like myself know to minimize “tropical oils” (Massimo’s comment) what other plant foods are the no-no’s (or maybe-no-no’s or, “in small amounts only”)? Can we have a list? Top 5 to avoid/minimize? Fermented tofu? Others?.I only see “Orange Juice” in the video too quick (without pause) to see what that study was saying.. A top 5 or top 10 to avoid would be great..

    (Strange, it let me log in as “harelb” using my  existing email/password…now it want me to “post as” (while already logged in…it says “Harelb” in the top right of the web page) with another login within a login? Also I get from firefox on ubuntu, a script hanging and hanging on  this page in general..until a dialog box asks if I want to stop the script..this happens to me for about 2% of web pages on the net, not the vast majority) Let’s try again as “guest”

  • Walter Schneider

    You refer to fermented food also; this should apply to the japanese food “natto” as well although it’s considered as very healthy…can you clarify this point? Much appreciated. Thank you.

  • Veguyan

    Once again, I pose the question on this site of vegan doctors and vegan eaters, like myself:

    Since we are designed to eat a vegan diet, how to explain the FACT that many people, after two, five, ten, fifteen years of detoxing, do not do well on a vegan diet. Is it purely psychological and all in their heads?

    There are many vegans where I live and also many people who have wanted to be vegan and have tried very hard, they say, and did everything right, they say. So why cannot some–many–people thrive on the vegan diet?

    Sorry to bore you, but as I wish to create and live in a vegan, compassionate world, I need an answer to this question and I will not stop until I have it.

    • HarelB

       You ask a very reasonable (not to mention, one with as you sate them, very admirable intentions) Vegayan…and I would love to know the answer too..but feel a note of caution is in order – you speak of people not doing well on “a vegan diet” – as you’re aware, there are many bad diets that are vegan, like (to deliberately exaggerate) as “iceberg lettuce, white bread, sugar, and greasy fried veggies”

      Now you say ” they say, and did everything right”..fair enough, but your phrase “they say” does say it all doesn’t it? I think what you’re really calling for (or what you’re asking for really calls for) is a study or several studies. That costs money. But say, take 10,000 vegans today and follow their diet, genetics, lifestyle choices (including people they hang out with, how much brainwashing, I mean, TV, they watch), stress levels etc) along with details about what they actually eat…and following them going forward for many years…see not only how all the vegans or originally-were-vegans do healthwise, but also track how many ‘drop out’ and maybe find out that with nutritional counseling along the way far fewer do and those who do, follow up and look at their (reported) health problems, and look at their choices for which vegan foods they ate/eat.

    • GSH

      Hi Veguyan,
      So I’ll ask. What makes you think they do not do well on a vegan diet? You have that many subjects to believe that?

      So I was vegan for about 3 years prior as a teenager early 20′s. I stopped not because I didn’t feel well but because I was over my obsessiveness about eating meat. Now I am doing it for health reasons, run 35 miles per week and haven’t noticed anything negative. I also think it is really important to eat real foods. I don’t eat anything processed. Because I run my main concern is getting enough calories so I don’t get too lean. Nuts help with that.

      Also Toxic really doesn’t like coconut but I think it’s the best sports drink out there. I don’t know what else to drink on a run that lasts 1.5 hours. Gatorade is so full of junk.

      So let’s see what the doctors think!

      • Toxins

         I actually do not have too much issue with coconut water, it is only when one adds sodium to it, enjoy!

  • Mary Bowen

    I suffer from being anemic….any good information on low iron count?  

    • Toxins

       Try to consume lots of dark green leefies as well as whole grains. When you consume whole grains, eat something high in vitamin c with it or after, like broccoli, an orange or red bell pepper. You can also eat garlic and onions to increase absorption of this nutrient. Check out the details here.

    I just learned that people who are sulfite sensitive may be lacking in molybdenum.  I just bought a mineral supplement with it and hope it relieves the hives and other more hidden problems that come from sulfite sensitivity.

  • csgcraigs

    Before I ask, please know that I do not desire to eat chicken. My question is, if one were to chop the head off a chicken and immediately prepare and eat the chicken, would that change the bacteria toxin load in the meat? I imagine it would because it wouldn’t have been raised in a horrible environment, butchered in a factory, packaged, trucked, left on the shelf at the store, put in a cart, waited in line, carried home (possibly in the heat of summer), stuck in the fridge, and finally cooked.

    • http://www.DonForresterMD.com/ Don Forrester MD

      You would certainly lower the risk of ingesting contamination compared to the typical food processing of meat. However it is still an animal and has an intestine with bacteria. Even avoiding the problems associated with the preparation which are significant see… http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fecal-contamination-of-sushi/ you are still faced with other dilemna’s associated with where it was raised, ?in a concentrated animal feed operations, what was in the food it consumed, etc.. Even if you could avoid the contamination of bacteria and chemicals you would still be faced with saturated fat and cholesterol intake. Since there is no advantage to eating chicken… unless faced with starvation I can’t recommend consuming it from a human’s perspective… of course the chicken’s side of the argument and the environmental and social justice side of the argument are pretty well settled as well. See Philip Wollen’s short video… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQCe4qEexjc&feature=youtu.be and Melanie Joy’s video on Carnism… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vWbV9FPo_Q.

    From January 2013, I think this is the first study to definitively finger saturated fat in facilitating endotoxin transport through the gut wall:

    http://www.nutritionandmetabolism.com/content/10/1/6/

  • Melissa

    Are these exogenous endotoxins as present in grass-fed meats?

    • Toxins

      As all meat is colonized by bacteria, then yes it would be. Endotoxins are inherent of meat as are elevated levels of IGF-1.

    “It’s difficult for patients to comply with this
    request!” Of course it is, when everyone’s being taught that they need
    animal protein. One of my coworkers used
    a website that told him that he needed 100 grams of protein a day to go along
    with his muscle building. So he had
    extra sardine cans in his cubical to try to make the 100 grams. My response, “Nod and Smile.” I looked up nutritional information of
    walnuts after seeing one of the videos here, and they are teaching people that
    it’s a moderate inflammatory, with high fat, and high calories. The general public isn’t getting this
    fantastic information. I’ve been adding
    beets and English walnuts to my diet because of how awesome this site is! I’ve also given up soda due to this site, and
    if the studies are true about the cream dilating the blood vessels then I’m
    going to give up milk chocolate and candy all together. I had no idea, the drastic effects it has
    within such a short amount of time after eating them. Thank you so much for all of your team’s hard
    work in putting this site together.

  • Heych

    A very interesting set of videos. thank you!
    My only queries are:
    -what about our grandparents who ate animal fat everyday and lived well into their 90′s without any auto immune conditions
    -does this mean all fermented food duch as tempeh and soy sauce cause the same effect?

  • http://www.eatandbeatcancer.com/ Harriet Sugar Miller

    So the endotoxins are in the flesh, the blood and the fat?

  • Jesse

    I am wondering if the endotoxins would survive in an alkaline environment. The study demonstrates that they are resistant to low pH, but how do you think they would react to a high pH?

  • Linda

    Has anyone read the PubMed summary article, “Beef fat prevents alcoholic liver disease in the rat”? http//www.ncbi.nim.nih.gov/pubmed/2646971
    The postulation is that there is correlation(causation) between the amount of linoleic acid and the promotion of liver inflammation and disease. Beef tallow was found to be protective while corn oil apparent promoted a disease condition. Lard also promoted inflammation, but less than corn oil.

    I’m trying to put this together with the leaky gut theory. I’m sure alcohol doesn’t help a leaky gut, but if one chooses to meat if it’s the unsaturated fats which are contributing to the endotoxin transport to the liver and not the saturated fat that comes “packaged” with the meat. The animal products contain endotoxins but perhaps they would not reach the blood stream with being transported by unsaturated fat.

    Clearly, the safest way to eat, would be avoid endotoxins in meat etc. ,but maybe it if the toxins didn’t hitch a ride to the liver all would be better, if not well.

Right Now Israel Might Become The FIRST ALL VEGAN NATION…Does This Make Veganism The “HOLY CHOSEN DIET”…Laughing…Unlikely, However In The Sense That It Really Truly Is A Cruelty Free Life Style Change, It Becomes A Revolutionary Act In The World And A TRUE BENEFICIAL Decision to Make the switch to DETOX ON ALL THE TOXIC ANIMAL FAT THAT HAS BEEN STORED UP OVER THE YEARS And RE-BUILD WITH PLANT-CELLULOSE PROTEIN; Doesn’t That Sound Better? Well, I Can Assure You, That Being One, Myself, That Is Into Weight Training And Body Building That The more Pure And Effective Way To Build Muscle is With Plants, Nuts, And Veggies. It Is Very Possible, You Might Need To Eat MORE, And I MEAN A LOT MORE WHOLE PLANTS, But it is even Worth it When You See HOW GOOD YOU FEEL While You Work Out, You Become Limitless. I Challenge You To really Research The VEGAN BODY BUILDING Community,

    It will blow your mind and all that you were taught about “BEING BIGGER AS BETTER”…Not So, You Can Be BIG, But This Does NOT DETERMINE Ones Health. As A Nutritionist, I Hear Mother’s Say How Big Their Little Child Is Getting, This Frightens Me, Because What I Am Hearing Is That This Child Has HORMONAL IMBALANCE, Early On-set Diabetes, Pre-Heart Disease Or Arteriosclerosis; Hard Breathing And Complications.

    Like I said before.. Don’t underestimate us smaller guys broskies…

    So in Conclusion What I Am Saying Here, Is That BEING BIGGER OR STRONGER LOOKING DOES NOT MAKE YOU HEALTHIER AS A HUMAN BEING. It Actually Could Make You Sickly Over Long Duration Or short today. What I Mean By Short, Is It COULD ACTUALLY BE DANGEROUS Being this big in this day and age; Where in the past it was alright to be bigger and live off a 90% Plant diet. Today the food is so heavily processed, excess protein is what people think keeps us alive, and we go to Calcium form milk. These are all VERY DANGEROUS FALLACIES AS WELL!
    Today even the plants are mineral deficient and nutrient lacking as well; then sprayed heavily with pesticides, growth hormones, and chemical fertilizers (Not to mention we have among the poorest of soil conditions in USA). So, please don’t think getting on Animal diets are going to somehow correct these deficiencies, this is far from the truth and closer to profitable lies that are window-dressed with tradition, taste additives (that are as addictive as crack cocaine and Heroin combined)
    Habit, and Convenience.

    Does this make us Lazy?
    Well, it could, unfortunately we live in a world where the very first thing offered to us is not always the truth, in fact as a researcher, I can say it is almost never fully TRUTH; which makes it entirely a LIE.

    The ones who love the 100% Truth enough to go unbiasedly research and search for it; ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO WILL FIND IT.
    That maybe a bold statement, however it is the Only truth you will find, and that is when you tie OPEN, HONEST, AND WILLING intellect with common sense. I Personally refer to this as using “HUMAN SENSICAL OBSERVATION SKILLS”. It becomes almost a discerning trait to read through all the lies and disillusions that the media, education system, Hollywood, and books that are teaching the children how to be everything that is wrong and this is why most are lost to knowing what is right anymore.

    “Do the right thing and the rest will follow”
    ~E.G.PLOTT~

    Asking God or The higher Holy Spirit being to guide you on this path of truth seeking will help unable you to find a better, less followed path. Not all are ready and it takes baby steps. few are chosen and all are called.

    Can you imagine a world in your life, where you didn’t have to support killing in order to sustain your life? GOOD NEWS! I Am here to confirm that after several years of not consuming animal products that not only am I STILL ALIVE, but I am thriving more than ever. When i go to the Gym as a Weight Trainer, My ENERGY Is ENDLESS and my strength carries to new levels and endurance sways to Staggering heights; my stamina, speed, and agility is that of a well-trained and disciplined child. Today, I am so happy that I chose this route, remember we only need about 8-11% Protein according to the CHINA STUDY And many thousands of other PUBMED Documents you can publicly research online by typing “PUBMED ADVANTAGES OF VEGAN DIET”.

    Keep in mind you can make excuses all day to not giving up ANIMAL KILLING DIETS, but the Meat, Dairy, And Egg Industry is there to help sell you right back to your excuses or old ways of thinking. The withdrawal of the ADDITIVES ALONE, is a struggle comparably to DRUG ADDICTION OR ALCOHOLISM.

    Adding new things in your life like superfoods such as MORINGA, SPIRULINA, CHLORELLA, HEMP, And eating Wholefood Veggies, Nuts, and Fruits; you will find that all UNCOOKED Plant produce actually carries all the PERFECT AMINO ACIDS our body is looking for. These are also high in PLANT PROTEIN, which you can consume as much as you want- live enzymes actually feed the body’s cell structure and build it as well. Meaning your body’s immune system actually gets stronger, so when outside threats or viruses come to attack, they will fail to defeat your fight back system in the body, you will deflect all threats and parasites found primarily in PROLONGED ANIMAL EATING HABITS..

    Go to the source, if animals that you eat, eat plants and dirt; perhaps you can do the same. YES! dirt which has b12 and minerals in it are very important!

    IF YOU ARE STILL CONSUMING ANIMAL PRODUCTS, Rest Assured YOU ARE NOT HEALTHY.

    You Cannot Make the claim that you are healthy while eating steaks, pork, milkshakes, fresh organic free ranged eggs or raw milk even, I don’t care if the beef was grass-fed; these are all EXCUSES fed by corporate greed; truth is your HEALTH IS YOUR GREATEST WEALTH and AS SOON AS THESE PRODUCTS HIT YOUR BLOOD STREAM YOU ARE IN Metabolic Endotoxemia Or Mid-Grade Fever State

    CONCLUSION: WHAT I HAVE FOUND IS THAT WHEN We Stray Further Away From The Garden, Our Sins Become More And More Corrupt, And Acceptable In The Sense That In Genesis It Does Not EVEN MENTION Eating Meat, But Only Eating Fruits, Veggies, And Nuts (Why Would They Eat Meat?)…As We Move Into The Old Testament Leviticus We See That To Eat Anything With Blood Is A Sin, Then We Go Into The New Testament And It Becomes More And More Accepted To Eat Meat, BUT CLEAR THAT IT IS NOT GOOD- For It Says Do Not Drink Or Eat Meat If It Causes Your Brother To Stumble/Fall (Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer ETC -Alcoholism); Meat Consumption is Not Beneficial. Now We Have The China Study Today That Proves Animal Consumption Leads To Affluent Diseases..Even Go Back A Step With Daniel, The Prophet From The Book Of Daniel, He Conducts The First CASE STUDY On Veganism And It Proved Successful To Eat Fruits And Vegetables In Optimum Health In Comparison To The Standard Diet Of The King. As You Go Further Through Time Into The NEW TESTAMENT It Is Culturally More Accepted, YET UNHEALTHY STILL AND WE ARE NOT TO JUDGE OUR BROTHERS ON HOW THEY EAT (WHETHER VEGAN OR MEAT EATER)….Then In The End- Revelations, It Says To EAT OF THE TREE OF LIFE- THE MIRACLE TREE…What Is That Tree, That Will Heal All Nations In The Last Days?

    I Just Know The Leading Causes Of Death Is MEAT
    AND Dairy-
    Doesn’t Matter If It IS FREE RANGE- Or Deer

    Consciousness WARNING SIDE EFFECTS OF MEAT AND DAIRY TO THE HUMAN BODY.

    Animal protein has no nutritional value and is excess protein for the human body to consume and digest. Animal protein is actually animal bacterias that is foreign to our natural human bacteria of our own and once meats are cooked all the live enzymes from the raw flesh from another being are all gone from the meat where the meat also becomes highly carcinogenic for us to even consume, just to mention in the fumes alone. Let alone when the rotting flesh of a dead corpse is passing through our digestive track promoting cancer growth by feeding cancer cells and many other foreign bacterias from puss mucus and blood from another being, even after its cooked. Besides it drives our white blood cells to react to often then it should causing wear and tare on our over all health and immunity defense reactions and drives it all way out of whack and out of control unnecessarily, every time its consumed just like all animal proteins that are very acidic foods, it makes our red blood cells stick together because they are trying to defend themselves and clear the path so our white blood cells can get to the foreign bacterias that are feeding cancer cells and other potential diseases and or sicknesses due to the acidity levels that make our immune system vulnerable for attack or growth for potential disease, this way our white blood cells can consume them down to size or down to almost nothing. Animal protein is totally unnecessary, First of all its way to acidic , theres no ph levels of alkaline that our body is always looking for over the acidity levels. Plus no fiber and no live minerals, then on top of all that it leaves mucus residues that not only feeds tumor tissue on contact within due time and build up all over inside the human anatomy, but especially leaving much plaque build up all in our arteries, and is the very reason why any meat and dairy is also the root stem to almost 90% of the worlds common and chronic diseases. All the way from the common cold to the flu to heart disease and most cancers. Its the very core and the root to what weakens the human immunity faster then anything else the human body has ever come in contact with.NEVER GOT ANY OF THESE ISSUES FROM CONSUMING ORGANIC FRUITS AND VEGETABLES THAT IS FULL OF LIVE ENZYMES, BIO PHOTON LIGHT ENERGY FROM THE SUN AND LOADED WITH NATURAL VITAMINS AND MINERALS ALONG WITH MUCH PLANT PROTEIN ABUNDANTLY!!! – Earth Man Consciousness
