"We're so conditioned to believe that milk does
a body good and that we need enormous amounts of
protein or we'll wither away. Look around, we're
not withering - we're fat."

Protein is making scientific headline-news during
February of 2014. The February 8, 2014 issue of the
Journal of Urology includes a study in which human
subjects were feed diets of various animal proteins
during three 1-week crossover phases and then analyzed
urinary uric acid levels.
"Consumption of animal protein is associated with elevated
serum and urine uric acid levels in healthy individuals...
Stone formers should be advised to limit their intake of
all animal proteins, including fish."
The February 11, 2014 issue of the American Journal of
Nephrology supported Notmilk’s conclusions that sulfur-based
amino acids found in animal protein (methionine and cysteine)
do not do the body any good. Researchers reported:
"Non-volatile acid is produced by metabolism of organic
sulfur in dietary protein, and promotes kidney damage."
From Kindergarten through high school, children are
bombarded with two dietary messages taught by ignorant
1) Eat protein, eat protein, eat protein! One cannot
get enough protein!
1) Drink milk, drink milk, drink milk, or bones will break.
Those lessons are reinforced in school cafeterias by
dairy and meat industry-financed posters.
Visit any hospital in America and ask:
"How many patients occupy beds here because of
The answer you will get is, "Zero."
Hospitals are filled with Americans who have eaten too
much dietary animal protein. It is nearly impossible
to live in America and not satisfy your protein needs.
People occupy beds because they eat entirely too much
protein. Why is that? Seven clues from peer-reviewed

"The average man in the US eats 175% more protein
than the recommended daily allowance and the
average woman eats 144% more."
- Surgeon General's Report on Nutrition and Health, 1988
"Osteoporosis is caused by a number of things, one of
the most important being too much dietary protein."
- Science 1986;233(4763)
"Countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis,
such as the United States, England, and Sweden,
consume the most milk. China and Japan, where
people eat much less protein and dairy food, have
low rates of osteoporosis."
- Nutrition Action Healthletter, June, 1993
"Dietary protein increases production of acid in
the blood which can be neutralized by calcium
mobilized from the skeleton."
- American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 1995; 61
"Even when eating 1,400 mg of calcium daily, one
can lose up to 4% of his or her bone mass each year
while consuming a high-protein diet."
- American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 1979;32(4)
"Increasing one's protein intake by 100%
may cause calcium loss to double."
- Journal of Nutrition, 1981; 111 (3)
"Animal food-groups were directly correlated to
mortality from coronary heart disease..."
- European Journal of Epidemiology, July, 1999

In school we were taught simple math and learned
that one plus one is supposed to equal two. That
was a lesson well-learned, but rarely practiced.
In school, we were brainwashed with fractured American
history. We were taught that Pilgrims represented
the moral and ethical basis for America. We were not
taught that the Pilgrims killed the same Indians
who helped them to plant corn and survive winters,
or that those friendly Wampanoags were captured and
shipped to Cuba to become slaves on sugar plantations.
In school, we were taught dietary lies which became
the foundation for nutritional ignorance, cancer,
heart disease, bone disease, and obesity epidemics.

"When even the brightest mind in our world has been
trained up from childhood in a superstition of any
kind, it will never be possible for that mind, in its
maturity, to examine sincerely, dispassionately, and
conscientiously any evidence or any circumstance which
shall seem to cast a doubt upon the validity of that
superstition. I doubt if I could do it myself."
- Mark Twain, The Autobiography of Mark Twain
