Diets high in protein, particularly plant protein, are associated with a lower risk of death from any cause, finds an analysis of the latest evidence published by The BMJ today. The researchers say these findings “support current dietary recommendations to increase consumption of plant proteins in the general population. Diets high in protein, particularly protein from plants such as legumes peas, beans and lentils, whole grains and nuts, have been linked to lower risks of developing diabetes, heart disease and stroke, while regular consumption of red meat and high intake of animal proteins have been linked to several health problems. So researchers based in Iran and the USA set out to measure the potential dose-response relation between intake of total, animal, and plant protein and the risk of death from all causes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. They reviewed the results of 32 studies that reported risk estimates for all cause, cardiovascular, and cancer mortality in adults aged 19 or older. All studies were thoroughly assessed for bias problems in study design that can influence results. Mathematical models were then used to compare the effects of the highest versus lowest categories of protein intake, and analyses were done to evaluate the dose-response relations between protein intake and mortality. During a follow-up period of up to 32 years, , deaths 16, from cardiovascular disease and 22, from cancer occurred among , participants. The results show that high intake of total protein was associated with a lower risk of all cause mortality compared with low intake. Intake of animal protein was not significantly associated with risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer mortality. Possible reasons for the beneficial effects of plant proteins include their association with favourable changes in blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels, which might help to lower the risk of conditions such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes, say the researchers.
They hide their phytochemical warfare agents from view. A salad with spinach and kale is plant leaves. And from his seed beginnings he then puts down roots that buried deep into the soil. Read this article a while back. The researchers found that plant protein was High protein diets are associated with a lower risk of death from any cause, according to research published in the BMJ. Anyway the things I wanted to ask You are. Blood work is a bit of an iffy area because the markers that are used are based on an omnivore diet. So I came to the conclusion that the only way to find out is to try it myself. I know of many case studies that the removal of lectins plant-based food improved vitiligo. Quite the contrary. My Phonebook.
To claim there are health dangers with a plant-based diet flies in the face of conventional wisdom. These experts tell us we need to eat fruits and vegetables for their essential vitamins and minerals. Their potent antioxidants ward off aging and cancer. Like all organisms, they are more concerned about their survival than ours. In fact, protecting themselves from predators like humans is high on their priority list. In this series we are going to look at various parts of plants that humans eat — everything from their seeds to roots to stems to leaves to their fruits. Floyd, my money tree, is sitting right next to my desk as I write this. While keeping me company, he sucks up my carbon dioxide emissions and pumps oxygen into the air for me to breathe. If I tried, I would surely get sick. When I think of Floyd I know he started as a seed.
