Do Vegetarians Get Enough Protein?
Nutritional quality indices show plant-based diets are the healthiest, but do vegetarians and vegans reach the recommended daily intake of protein?

`
Higher Quality May Mean Higher Risk
The reason animal proteins trigger the release of the cancer-promoting growth hormone IGF-1 more than plant proteins may be because the relative ratios of amino acids in animal proteins more closely resembles our own.

`

Starving Cancer with Methionine Restriction
Methionine restriction—best achieved through a plant-based diet—may prove to have a major impact on patients with cancer because unlike normal tissues, many human tumors require the amino acid methionine to grow

`

Caloric Restriction vs. Animal Protein Restriction
The lifespan extension associated with dietary restriction may be due less to a reduction in calories, and more to a reduction in animal protein (particularly the amino acid leucine, which may accelerate aging via the enzyme TOR)

The Pastures Aren’t So Green

The green pastures and idyllic barnyard scenes of years past are now distant memories.

The following is excerpted from the GoVeg site @ http://www.goveg.com/factoryFarming.asp

The green pastures and idyllic barnyard scenes of years past are now distant memories. On today’s factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy windowless sheds, wire cages, gestation crates, and other confinement systems. These animals will never raise their families, root in the soil, build nests, or do anything that is natural to them. They won’t even feel the sun on their backs or breathe fresh air until the day they are loaded onto trucks bound for slaughter.

Animals on today’s factory farms have no legal protection from cruelty that would be illegal if it were inflicted on dogs or cats: neglect, mutilation, genetic manipulation, and drug regimens that cause chronic pain and crippling, transport through all weather extremes, and gruesome and violent slaughter. Yet farmed animals are no less intelligent or capable of feeling pain than are the dogs and cats we cherish as companions.

The factory farming system of modern agriculture strives to maximize output while minimizing costs. Cows, calves, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, and other animals are kept in small cages, in jam-packed sheds, or on filthy feedlots, often with so little space that they can’t even turn around or lie down comfortably. They are deprived of exercise so that all their bodies’ energy goes toward producing flesh, eggs, or milk for human consumption. The giant corporations that run most factory farms have found that they can make more money by cramming animals into tiny spaces, even though many of the animals get sick and some die. Industry journal National Hog Farmer explains, “Crowding Pigs Pays,” and egg-industry expert Bernard Rollins writes that “chickens are cheap; cages are expensive.”

They are fed drugs to fatten them faster and to keep them alive in conditions that would otherwise kill them, and they are genetically altered to grow faster or to produce much more milk or eggs than they would naturally. Many animals become crippled under their own weight and die within inches of water and food.

While the suffering of all animals on factory farms is similar, each type of farmed animal faces different types of cruelty.

When they have finally grown large enough, animals raised for food are crowded onto trucks and transported over many miles through all weather extremes to the slaughterhouse. Those who survive this nightmarish journey will have their throats slit, often while they are still fully conscious. Many are still conscious when they are plunged into the scalding water of the defeathering or hair-removal tanks or while their bodies are being skinned or hacked apart.

You can take a stand against cruelty to animals:

By switching to a vegetarian diet, you will save more than 100 animals a year.

2013 International Year of Quinoa

Celebrating one of the world’s finest food plants; Quinoa.

2013

Welcome to the International Year of Quinoa. I kid you not. Who would have thought?

The UN deemed 2013 the “International Year of Quinoa.” Yep, Agenda Item 25 in the 66th session of the UN General Assembly suggests that everyone everywhere “focus world attention on the role that quinoa biodiversity can play, owing to the nutritional value of quinoa, in providing food security and nutrition and in the eradication of poverty.”

Known to Andean natives and and many throughout South and Middle America as ‘chisaya mama’ (Mother Grain) and ‘golden grain of the Incas,’ the quinoa plant sprouted from high altitude vistas in the thin air of the Andes where it has been a prolific and reliable staple for over 4,000 years.

Food, Quinoa, 5

Quinoa plant

Spanish invaders tried to eradicate the ‘sacred Mother Food’ of the advanced Incan people. But Quinoa was born in a harsh environment; it’s a survivor, and it survived. Thank goodness!
The U.N. IYQ (International Year of Quinoa) statement includes the heartfelt following: “in recognition of the indigenous peoples of the Andes, who have maintained, controlled, protected and preserved quinoa as a food for present and future generations thanks to their traditional knowledge and living practices which are in harmony with nature and Mother Earth”.

Around here, we’ve been enjoying Quinoa (pronounced KEE-no-ah) for over 30 years. NASA scientists, searching decades ago for an ideal food for long-term human space missions, discovered quinoa and stated that it “is unrivaled in the plant or animal kingdom for its life-sustaining nutrients”.

I credit, at least in part, Gabriel Howearth who founded the original ‘Seeds of Change’ with saving this venerable plant from extinction or at least from slipping into obscurity as the world and her human societies become ever more ‘modern’ and less appreciative of authentic gifts, such as real/whole food.

Seeds of Change was originally all about preserving biodiversity and promoting the use of sustainable organic agricultural practices. Seeds of Change, of course, is now owned by M&M Mars. Weird ha…

Food, Quinoa, 2

Anyway, The Mother Grain (technically not a grain, but the seed of a leafy green) is here to stay. Well, undoubtedly The Monsantos are trying to wipe it out, but it is a supreme survivor. Excuse me for using the ‘M’ word, but concentrating on the positive, let’s just say that Quinoa is doing well. She is available ‘round the world and nourishing folks like few foods can, and far better than most anything used in the SAD (standard American Diet).
Find it (any natural food store, many standard grocery outlets, even Costco), prepare it (endless possibilities), enjoy it, and share it.

In this post you will find video presentations featuring some of the villains and some of the heroes in the GMO Invasion. Some videos are short and some are full length documentaries. The first one (GREENPEACE – Genetic engineering), is a nice concise primer and is good to help folks get their feet wet on this extremely critical issue. Get mad (and be kind), and get active. Let’s do what we can to save the future of food (and all life) for all of us and certainly for the people of the future who deserve no less.
I have divided the post into sections so that loading the page won’t bog you down, so please click the ascending ‘Pages’ numbers after every several videos to advance to the next section… There are some that are just too good to miss.
