We don't need as much protein as we think. Especially not from animals like the so called ready protein or Creatine or Androstenedione found in animals. Men and women who take extra protein drinks and pills shouldn't do so, if they care about their health that is. If one owns health isn't of much importance one might care about the earth's health, or why not the animals health?! We know from so many studies over the years that animal eaters have a much higher risk of getting cancer and other disease than vegans or vegetarians. Here is another study from the UK:
A recent study published in the British Journal of Cancer shows that those who used the supplements, such as pills and powders, with creatine and androstenedione had as much as a 177% (OMG!!) higher risk to develop testicular cancer than those who didn't, especially if they began using them before the age of 25, took two or more supplements, or used the supplements for three years or longer. What we need are the components of protein, the Amino Acids found in plants, not the big and heavy molecules that proteins are. They are hard to digest and leaves a large residue that can be harmful to our bodies. Today we only eat animal muscles, en pass on the organ or other meat in rich countries.
If you want a high performing disease-free body, going vegan is a no-brainer, as the statistics are overwhelmingly clear, but the convention and culture is not. This is no news. Most athletes know that a handful of pumpkinseeds or natural peanuts is a much higher source of protein and easy to metabolise for us than any muscle food from animals. If you are still not convinced that you can build muscles when only eating plants like our cousins the big apes, then check this.
