WHAT ABOUT PROTEIN?

Eat your veggies…
An interesting fact to ponder: While talking to people about 10 days on The Master Cleanse with no food, most everyone has asked “what about protein?”
Here is something I read in Stanley Burroughs’ book that might explain it better. I thought that the last paragraph was interesting and it made an impression on me. It made think way back to the dinosaurs.
It helps explain why those switching to a vegan raw food diet exclaim so quickly that they don’t have the need to sleep all day anymore! I promise that I am not trying to “convert” anyone’s diet. I’m just sharing the information that I come across to help answer a common question.
Here’s what he says on page 27: Often the question is asked about the need for amino acids, and animal protein foods. The need is highly exaggerated as only 16% of our body is protein. The answer to the question “How do I get my Protein” is very simple. We first need to understand that pure protein is primarily nitrogen, with oxygen, hydrogen and some carbon. We all know we get a large share of our oxygen and hydrogen needs from the air along with carbon. There is four times the amount of nitrogen in the same air as there is oxygen, hydrogen and carbon combined. Since we are able to utilize and assimilate a large amount of our needs of these elements into our bodies we are able to assimilate and build the nitrogen also into our bodies as protein. This is done by natural bacteria action which is capable of converting it to our use.
From the combination of the best of foods and clean air we are able to create our own amino acids, just as the animals do. We never try to feed amino acids to animals….
People who smoke cannot pick up oxygen from the air so easily, but will still get enough from proper food without the use of animal flesh. For your well being, however, elimination of smoking is a must.
Many people believe that eating meat gives them strength. If this is so, then why are the strongest animals in the world vegetarian? Did you ever stop to think that the animals that you do eat are vegetarian? Where did they get their strength? All the meat-eating animals find it necessary to sleep 16 to 18 hours daily because of excess toxins. The meat eating animals live a very short life…
