Letter in the Seattle P.I. January 15 2004

Meat is not only source of protein

The unfortunate lawyer who realized too late that his traditional spaghetti dinner may have been infected with mad cow disease ("Family ate beef from recalled batch," Jan. 8) called it bad luck, "like getting hit by lightning."

A good analogy when you figure that just as lightning can be avoided by using common sense and staying out of open fields during thunderstorms, deadly prion diseases can be avoided by simply shunning meat and switching to a plant-based diet.

Millions of healthy people are living proof that non-traditional sources such as soy and other legumes can provide human beings with plenty of protein and the added peace of mind that the protein they ingest will not in turn eat away at their brains.
