When you eat fruits you get healthier. Your use of amino acids in the diet becomes total and putrefaction is nil. Your cells live twice as long, for this reason protein replacement is less than half? Even the group that set the RDAs admits that 30 grams daily on the conventional diet would be sufficient. So, if a fruitarian got 10 grams daily, he’d probably receive plenty. On the other hand, a fruitarian diet of average fruits furnishes about 30 grams daily. Living amino acids will not putrefy nearly as fast as dead proteins as in cooked foods. Hence your animal protein foods give you disease while fruits give you health. Those old stink gases and feces are evidence of protein decomposition in the intestinal tract.
Fruits on the average contain just over one percent amino acids with their water content, about the same as a mother’s milk for a rapidly-growing baby. Can you, as an adult, insist you need more than a growing baby?
Questioned Asked. In saying that we should eat the fruit diet the question came up that I’m not taking into account the different metabolic types. Because there are humans who have to take meat while others might get along on fruits. How do I settle this with the recognition of the difference between all humans?
And here is my ANSWER: Yes, humans are all different, yet they are all alike. This old hoax about what is one person’s boon is another’s bane is a lot of malarkey and a bunch of BS. One man can hold his liquor and another literally has fits with a few drinks. That does not mean liquor is a boon to one though it is most obviously a bane to the other. Humans have differing levels of pathology and vitality. The differences are along these lines, not any other.
There is only one type of metabolism among humans: we might label it the human metabolism. I read anatomy and physiology books. And they don’t teach one thing about different metabolic types nor anatomical types or different physiological types.
The way I read it, it seems we all have two eyes, two hands, a single mouth, a tongue that looks the same, glands that secrete the same digestive juices, the same type of esophagus, the same stomach action, the same intestinal parts, the same absorptive mechanisms, the same type of liver, the same type of needs. When you get down to it there are no physiological differences whatsoever. This business about different metabolisms is the figment of some smart Alec’s imagination to profit in some way, usually to sell some kind of supplement. Or, organizations that are looking to market a lotion a potion, a powder or a pill, a gadget or a gimmick and the other industries that market animal products.
The affects of too much protein: How much protein do we need? The daily Recommended Allowance has been set at 56grams daily for a man weighing 154 pounds, and 46 grams daily for a woman weighing 128 pounds. The truth is that we actually need only a maximum of 20 to 25 grams for the average man. Too much protein can actually be detrimental to your health.
The fact that there is a significant increase in the excretion of nitrogen after consuming protein rich foods indicates that the body has a smaller need. Excess protein involves a needless waste of vital energy for the system must rid itself of the putrefying excess.
If your protein intake is too large, the surplus is beyond the metabolic capacity of the body. Excessive use of protein causes autointoxication due to the overabundant amount of ammonia and other end products of protein putrefaction and decomposition. This results in a great deal of stress on all the organs of the body, especially the kidneys and liver. The presence of an excessive amount of these end products requires an expenditure of a great deal of energy for their elimination.
When nerve energy is used up or is below normal, the functions of secretion and excretion are impaired. Secretions are necessary to digestion and assimilation. If these functions are impaired and if excretion is insufficient, waste products remain in the system and impair functioning.
If the proteins which are consumed are of a low order (as in flesh foods) or if they are denatured or altered in any way (as in cooking), this means that the body will not be able to make much use of them in the formation of blood plasma proteins and the formation of hormones and enzymes for which amino acids are so essential.
(According to Wikipedia, Blood plasma is the pale yellow liquid component of blood that normally holds the blood cells in whole blood in suspension; this makes plasma the extracellular matrix of blood cells. It makes up about 55% of the body’s total blood volume. It is the intravascular fluid part of extracellular fluid (all body fluid outside of cells). It is mostly water (up to 95% by volume), and contains dissolved proteins (6–8%) (i.e.—serum albumins,globulins, and fibrinogen), glucose, clotting factors, electrolytes (Na+, Ca2+, Mg2+, HCO3−, Cl−, etc.), hormones, and carbon dioxide (plasma being the main medium for excretory product transportation). Plasma also serves as the protein reserve of the human body. It plays a vital role in an intravascular osmotic effect that keeps electrolytes in balanced form and protects the body from infection and other blood disorders.)
When you take protein into your system, your body first breaks down the protein into amino acids. These amino acids then go into your bloodstream. However, the cells are only capable of absorbing so much. They are programmed to take into their cells X amount of amino acids and build it into the cell protein. Enzymes break down surplus amino acids into simpler compounds so that you can eliminate them. Excess protein overloads the liver and overworks the kidneys. The kidneys have to do the work of eliminating toxic protein byproducts and the liver has to help prepare them for this elimination. In the process you lose energy and have contaminated body tissues and fluids. The end results are pathologies (the processes of a disease, observable either with the naked eye or by microscopy, or, at a molecular level, as inferred from biochemical tests) as we see today in America.
