Myth About Protein Part One!
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.
