The Protein Myth
Comments by Frank L. Hoffman - 9 Feb 2004

Dear Nadine:

Thanks for your email.

The first question to ask about where we get our protein, is where do cows and elephants get their protein and still grow to be so large? Both of these animals are vegetarian (vegan). The answer is from the plants they eat. Calorie for calorie, there is more protein in plant foods than there is in animal foods. Broccoli for example has twice as much protein as meat.

We had a 70 lb. vegan dog. The average life span of a large dog is slightly over ten years. Heidi lived to be 15, only to die from complications from an insect bite. She was healthy and playful up until the time of her death.

The key to a healthful diet is eating whole plant foods (unprocessed).

In the Love of the Lord,
