Eating meat is an important health consideration. The positives and negatives of eating meat should be assessed.

Meat causes the digestion to work hard and this is not efficient. To breakdown food in the body requires a process of burning oxygen which is called oxidation. Oxidation is a process in the body that results in the production of free radicals. Modern science, by the preponderance of the evidence, believes 80 per cent or more of the damage to the body is the result of free radicals. The more difficult digestion, as in the case of digesting meat, the more oxidation is required to breakdown foods. The more oxidation, the more free radicals are produced, which leads to free radical accumulation. Accumulation of free radicals is not considered healthy.

Furthermore, eating meat produces a great deal of toxic-by-products. The body digests meat and leftovers are created. Dr. Bob is mentioned many times on this web site. He was a M.D. internal medicine, orthomolecular doctor, M.D. psychiatrist, chiropractor, and healer 65 years. He was a diabetic who lived to 108 years with only 1 side effect 2 years before he passed away. He said the leftovers are known as "purines," rotten and toxic leftovers. The body is compelled to move these purines along in the intestines. The bacteria accumulation, the toxic aspects, the long time it takes to move the purines along the intestines, and other aspects all lead to free radical accumulation. This is not healthy.

Another problem with meat, according to Dr. Bob, is it can be infected. This is another reason to consider not eating meat or reducing the amount of meat you eat.

The idea of eating meat is to get protein for the body. However, eating meat protein has negative effects as described. Dr. Bob advised substituting whey protein for meat protein as often as possible. Whey is a pre-digested food that is high quality protein. It is easy on the digestion and does not require the large amounts of digestion that the long molecules of meat require. Whey as a minimal of leftover byproducts, especially compared to meat. Whey is very efficient in the body and this means lower levels of oxidation and free radicals compared to meat digestion. Dr. Bob suggested cutting back on eating meat and getting some of your proteins from whey.

In conclusion, meat digestion is hard on the body and damaging. It seems prudent to consider reducing the amount of meat you eat due to the damaging effects. One alternative that supplies high quality protein is whey protein.

Note Ė In order for these anti-aging ideas to be successful, you must use supplements of the highest quality. Dr. Bob often said, "almost all supplement companies produce poor quality." You can consider the product page of this web site. Almost all the products met Dr. Bobís approval. Since he passed away we have attempted to keep the same high standards.
