BLIND FAITH Update Re Complete Protein

The Premier book for macular degeneration suffers about diet from vitamins to minerals to protein

The best commercial anti-VEGF therapy (providing 13.3 letters gained in 52 weeks) cannot compare to the Crittenden Protocol of (35 letters gained in 11 weeks).

In my book BLIND FAITH I used the following quote about protein from LiveStrong.com which has proven to be partly wrong: “Rice and beans are both nutritious yet inexpensive foods that, when combined, form a complete protein. Our bodies need protein to build and repair tissue. Proteins are made up of building blocks called amino acids… While animal sources of protein contain all the essential amino acids [usually], plant sources lack one or more, called the limiting amino acid.”

Here is a quote from Vegetarian Guide that is correct: “Common vegetables have much more protein than you need, and contrary to popular myth, they’re complete proteins as well.”

To quote further from Vegetarian Guide: “Vegetables average around 22% protein by calorie, beans 28%, and grains 13%… The U.S. government’s recommendation is 5-11%, based on various factors.  The World Health Organization recommends a similar amount.  And these recommendations are padded with generous safety margins, to cover people who need more protein than average.  WHO makes it clear that around 97% of people need less than their recommendations… So plant foods easily supply our protein needs.  The truth is that if you’re eating food, you’re eating protein—and almost certainly more than enough… It’s meaningless to talk about a ‘source of protein’, since all foods have plentiful protein.  In other words, every whole food is a ‘source of protein’.  You don’t have to eat certain, special foods to get protein. You just have to eat any whole food. That’s it.”
