IS HIGH PROTEIN DIETS HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH?

by Helene van den Berg

YES, it certainly is!!

Here are 10 reasons why:

  • Toxins from meat, breed cancer cells. The toxic byproducts of excessive protein and animal fat digestion, can damage the DNA, making the cells cancerous. The front line defense of the body (white cells and lymphocytes) are damaged, which results in infection and the appearance of cancerous cells.
  • Excessive intake of protein, causes calcium deficiency and osteoporosis. With excess protein consumption, the blood becomes acidic, requiring calcium to neutralize it, which results in loss of calcium. The phosphorus level in meat is very high, which will cause the body to draw calcium from the bones and teeth, to maintain the balance between calcium and phosphorus (1:1 and 1:2). This is why people from countries, with diets rich in animal proteins, suffer from osteoporosis.
  • Protein causes allergic reactions. Undigested proteins enter the blood, through the wall of the intestines, as a foreign substance, creating an allergic reaction. (e.g. dermatitis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis etc.).

  • Excess protein may contribute to ADHD in children. Animal protein and sugar demand increased calcium and magnesium, leading to calcium deficiency, which irritates the nervous system, contributing to nervousness and irritability. Processed foods are also very acidic, containing several additives.
  • Excess protein stresses the liver and kidneys.  
  • Excess protein depletes your energy levels. A great amount of energy is demanded to detoxify the toxins, produced by the undigested proteins. 
  • When large amounts of energy is used, a large number of free radicals are created , which are responsible for ageing, heart disease, cancer etc.
  • To detoxify these toxins, large amounts of liver and intestinal enzymes are exhausted.
  • If you eat a lot of meat and lack dietary fiber, it causes constipation and stagnant stools.
  • If above condition is left untreated, diverticuli (pocket-like cavities) develop on the intestinal walls, where toxins and stagnant stools accumulate, causing polyps and cancer.

 

NOTE: The necessary amount of protein a person needs, is approximately 1 gm / 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of body weight.
