"The average-sized adult needs 45 to 55 grams of protein a day. More protein is needed if there is fever or infection. One ounce of meat, chicken, cheese, or fish provides 7 grams of protein; one cup of milk provides 8 grams. Therefore, 5 to 6 ounces of meat per day and tprotein for most adults. For vegetarians, vegetable proteins can make a good substitute for animal protein if eaten with a complementary starch at the same meal. An example of this would be to substitute \Yi cups of black beans and rice for a 2-ounce portion of meat."

"Push the protein. High protein diets (in which 45 percent of daily calories come from protein) have been shown to block the same enzyme that zinc affects, while diets containing less than 10 percent protein can increase DHT (dihydrotestosterone), the "bad" testosterone. Soy protein is especially helpful. It's high in hormone-like substances called isoflavones that block the effects of excessive estrogen as well as inhibit compounds that build DHT. It also contains compounds called phytosterols that have been shown to increase urinary flow."

"Cholesterol is a waxy fat that is attached to a protein for transport in the blood. The difference between "good" cholesterol, HDL, and "bad" cholesterol, LDL, is the protein to which the cholesterol is attached.) Coronary heart disease develops when one or more of the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle become blocked, depriving the muscle cells of the oxygen and nutrients needed to function properly. The process starts when LDL cholesterol particles circulating in the blood pass into the walls of the coronary arteries."

"In an observational study, women whose diets contained the highest proportion of animal protein were almost four times more likely to suffer a fractured hip than women whose primary source of protein was vegetables. This is just a sampling of some of the research that doesn't get pushed out into the public's awareness by commercial sponsors. Where might you find additional information about bone health to guide your decisions? Almost half of Americans turn to the Internet for health information."

"Specifically, they examined the expression of a protein known to play a role in cellular differentiation and proliferation, called peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor, and other proteins released during inflammation, known as chemokines and integrins. They also examined the role of caspases enzymes in programmed cell death. The group found an increased expression of peroxisome, chemokines and integrins in the cancerous tissue. There were also significant increases in several types of caspases in the lymphocytes from breast cancer patients."

"This may be due to the fact that it increases protein synthesis in the brain. Studies from several laboratories have shown that piracetam has the unique ability to increase the synthesis of proteins in brain cells. It stimulates special cell structures, called polyribosomes, to manufacture these new proteins. The administration of piracetam for short periods of time produced a substantial increase in these special protein-manufacturing structures.11 It is well established that the storage of long-term memory is dependent on the synthesis of protein in the brain cells."
- Ross Pelton, Mind Food and Smart Pills (Get the book.)

"Increased protein Synthesis Some scientists believe the learning process involves synthesizing new proteins that become part of the structure of brain cells as new information is stored in memory. Piracetam produces major improvements in animal learning. This may be due to the fact that it increases protein synthesis in the brain. Studies from several laboratories have shown that piracetam has the unique ability to increase the synthesis of proteins in brain cells. It stimulates special cell structures, called polyribosomes, to manufacture these new proteins."

"Calcium is used in the metabolism of protein, and for this reason and the fact that osteoporosis is very prevalent in societies that consume a lot of protein, many nutritionists believe that, to avoid osteoporosis, a low-protein diet is necessary. The world's highest dairy consumers suffer most from osteoporosis. The best non-dairy sources of calcium include green, leafy vegetables, tahini (sesame paste), tofu, broccoli and sunflower seeds. Critics of vegetarian diets will tell you that these foods supply scant calcium, but consider the following."

"This remarkable legume is the only member of the plant kingdom which gives complete protein comparable to all forms of animal meats. Soybeans contain 11 times as much protein as milk, twice as much protein as meat or fish, and one and one-half times as much protein as cheese. Other Valuable Nutrients Along with an abundance of protein, soybeans also contain vitamins A, E. K, and some of the B factors. Other nutrients found in the beans include potassium, iron, phosphorus, calcium, and amino acids."

"When Russian scientists at the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences explored the effects of space weather on cosmonauts being sent into space, they discovered that protein synthesis in bacteria cells is highly susceptible to changes in geomagnetic fields, and that this disturbance in protein synthesis also affects human microorganisms.5 Geomagnetic disturbances influence the synthesis of micronutrients in plants; even single-celled algae respond to solar-cycle flux."

"Hemoglobin is a protein. Certain hormones like thyroxin, insulin, adrenaline, testosterone, and the estrogens are proteins. All these proteins maintain the smooth functioning of the body. When we mention the word protein, our imagination turns to beef, pork, poultry, fish, and milk. Yet, these animal proteins are very difficult to process due to the complexity of their molecules and only a small part of them can truly bring benefit to our bodies while the remainder remains as harmful waste."

"There are 64 possible codon combinations; 61 are used to encode the 20 amino acids, and three "stop" codons are used to indicate the end of a protein sequence. This coding is similar to Morse code. Morse code uses combinations of two elements, the dot and the dash, to specify letters of the alphabet and punctuation marks. In the genetic code, combinations of the four subunits A, T, C, and G make up the protein alphabet. In Morse code, a brief period of silence specifies the end of the message, just as the three stop codons mark the beginning and end of a protein sequence."

"He recommends including some protein to boost your kids' energy in those long hours before lunch. "School lunches and snacks should be as healthy as possible, and also include some protein, along with fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, water, and healthy whole grains if desired. Encourage your child's school to provide healthy options and avoid empty calories and unhealthy additives in most packaged snacks and beverages. Top-of-the-list things to avoid include trans fats (partially hydrogenated fats) and caffeine."

"Cholesterol travels through the blood in clusters called lipoproteins, which consist of cholesterol, triglycerides, protein, and other compounds. ?There are two main types of lipoproteins: low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Breakthroughs in Healing: Costas' Story When I first saw Costas, a 52-year-old man of Greek origin, his cholesterol was well into the danger zone. His total cholesterol was 256. More worrisome was the balance of HDL and LDL. His HDL was 46, which is much lower than it should be, and his LDL was 143, which is somewhat elevated."

"A raw, inflamed lining is like a fence with holes in it. protein molecules that have not been fully digested pass through. Normally, proteins are broken down into their constituent amino acids before they are absorbed. Those components are reassembled to create the structural proteins we need for maintenance and repair in the body. Intact proteins should be allowed in only when they are "invited," absorbed actively for a purpose.16 Other proteins that slip through holes in the lining of a leaky gut are targeted as "foreign" and the immune system makes antibodies against them."

"Immune system powerhouses, like antibodies and T cells, are made up of protein. The only way they "rev up" to protect you from sinus infections is to replenish their supply. Conversely, too little protein in the diet may lead to symptoms of fatigue, weakness, apathy, and poor immunity. The average-sized adult needs 45 to 55 grams of protein a day. More protein is needed if there is fever or infection. One ounce of meat, chicken, cheese, or fish provides 7 grams of protein; one cup of milk provides 8 grams."

"Soybean products include soybean milk, soybean flour, soybean curd, sufu, tofu (cheese-like cake high in protein and calcium), tempeh (Indonesian main dish), fermented soybean paste (miso), soybeans sprouts, soy sauce, soybean oil, textured soy proteins (in meat extenders), soy protein drinks, and livestock feeds. Because of its low cost, good nutritional value, and versatility, soy protein is also used as part of food programs in less-developed countries. It is also used in infant formulas (most often if milk protein allergy exists)."

"Every tissue that breaks down and needs repair needs protein — and since the body is constantly in need of repair and raw materials for growth, protein is essential to good health. In fact, within a year, 98 percent of all the atoms in your body are replaced. Proteins are constructed of amino acids, complex molecules essential for nearly every body function. To work properly, proteins must be "complete," containing all eight essential amino acids. Most complete proteins come from animals — meat, fish, eggs and dairy products."

"Nutrition experts I rely on suggest that people at risk for osteoporosis limit their protein intake to no more than one gram of protein per kilogram of body weight, which translates into around two to three ounces of protein—on the order of one chicken breast—daily for the average woman. Most Americans eat considerably more protein than this, thus running a risk of calcium loss even if they consume a lot of the mineral. Green Pharmacy for Osteoporosis If you're looking to consume less protein and more nutrients that help prevent osteoporosis, here are the plant foods I'd suggest."

"Kefir grains are a combination of protein, lipids, carbohydrates, bacteria and yeasts. The grains resemble cauliflower. Kefir, cheese and yogurt are all natural sources of probiotics. New Ways to Eat Probiotics—and Prebiotics Today, probiotics are available in all sorts of foods. The emergence of functional foods (foods with added nutrients that offer health benefits) into the marketplace has given rise to non-traditional probiotic food items. The easiest of food groups to add probiotics to is dairy products."

"Unfortunately, the typical school-cafeteria lunch—even if it has a high protein and vitamin content—is often loaded with trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, and other dangerous additives. Many schools might have chips and sodas on their menus or vending and soda machines in their hallways. To protect your children from these toxic temptations, start by researching the foods and snacks available in their schools."

"Anti-myelin basic protein (MBP) antibodies. • PANDAS profile. • ASO titer. • Anti-DNAse B titer. Tier Four Testing These tests, like those in Tier Three, may be done as treatment progresses. Not all patients will require these tests. However, most patients will receive challenge testing for heavy metals. The tests consist of: Provoked urine testing for heavy metals. Urinary porphyrins. Genetic polymorphisms. As I've indicated, I never begin a program by dictating to parents the tests that I insist they do."

"For the most part, it's the same basic advice your own mom probably gave you: Eat your fruits and vegetables, go easy on the sweets, keep the junk food to a minimum, eat enough protein, and if a certain food doesn't seem to agree with you, don't eat it. In a very real sense, that advice covers all six of these diets. As I've often said, Moms know. THE TWO FOOD REACTION DIETS You should start your child's new diet by removing the foods that don't agree with him or her. By this, I mean the foods that cause food reactions: allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances."

"Autism: Effective Biomedical Treatments, which he wrote with Dr. Pangborn. This mischievous protein can create caseomorphins that cause the same type of intoxication, contentment, and pleasure as the morphinelike substances that can come from gluten peptides. This intoxication can result in cravings, and in the strong attachment that so many kids have to milk. This attachment, not incidentally, is also strongly reinforced by the aggressive marketing campaigns of the dairy industry, which generally portray milk as our society's most wholesome and harmless health food."
