This is a wonderful read. Really makes one understand just how horrible all plant eating is for our bodies and what these nasty thieves do against our bodies. This is one top reason a carnivore is a carnivore To rid the body of the offending horrible plants and thrive on meat and fat! Not eating plants should be a true core value to carnivores and this info explains why we adopt this science.
-----Lectins are one of the most insidious chemical weapons plants have in their arsenal to fight back against predators.
----- Wheat Germ Agglutinin, does many horrible things but one is the brain…Although most lectins are rather large, WGA is smaller, and because of this can sneak through the gut more easily than other lectins. And because the vagus nerve connects the gut to the brain, WGA can hop on this highway and go straight to the brain. To make matters worse, WGA can cross the blood-brain barrier. And because it’s a “sticky” protein, it can connect with many other substances that have no business in the brain, and transport them right on in. Naturally, this can result in neurological problems.
-----One of the hidden health dangers in plant-based foods is an antinutrient called phytic acid.
It is a thief.
But the health dangers of phytic acid are often insidious. The theft happens, and we don’t even know it.
-----Iron deficiencies and more…Iron deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in the world.
Since iron plays a crucial role in carrying oxygen to cells, deficiencies are extremely problematic to human health.
Plants have a form of iron called “non-heme iron.” And phytic acid interferes with its absorption.
Luckily, animal iron, called “heme iron” is immune from phytic acid’s theft.
------ “Broccoli Bomb”
The crucifers like broccoli have this chemical called glucosinolate.
I like to think of this chemical as the main ingredient of the “bomb.”
They also have another chemical called myrosinase.
I think of this as the “matchstick” that lights the bomb.
AND SO MUCH MORE GREAT INFORMATION
Read this and absorb the truth of what a more plant based diet can lead to such destructive troubles for our bodies. It’s a longer read but absolutely fascinating!!
