Dr Greger is back with a video on the “changing recommendations on protein intake.” Remember protein can be a toxin to our body in large amounts. We do need protein but not as much as most Americans eat. Also remember protein is NOT synonymous with meat! Every living cell, plant based or animal based or single cell organisms, are made of protein. Vegans eat no animal protein but get plenty of protein to stay healthy. Too much protein can over tax your system and cause disease.
