Think of slaking a great thirst by pouring a tall glass of spring water onto a sponge, and then gnawing the sponge to get the water back out of it. That is the animal agriculture model. Europe has no choice but to innovate another way. Protein will not be an issue.
Does a cow get its protein by eating beef? That would make it a fairly unpopular cow out there in the pasture. The subject of complete plant proteins spans an array of topics -- from dinosaurs to dandelions to neolithic foot fatigue. Oh, and plants DO contain complete proteins. They're alive, aren't they?
A baby will typicallydouble its weightby 6 months old. Amother’s intake of protein is essential to provide the anabolic—or mass-adding—environmentthat grows a newborn baby into a 6-month-old power-crawler. And for the expectant mom, powdered plant protein goes down easy—at a time that little else will.
The free radical—starved of a single electron—goes roaming around your interior like a staggering ghoul until it finds an unsuspecting, ordinary molecule walking innocently by -- and freaking steals his electron. How do we stop these micro-jerks? How??! Not to sound too panicky.
The taxonomic name of the cacao tree, Theobroma Cacao, has its provenance in the Mayans having referred to cacao as a Food of the Gods—“broma” meaning food, “theo” meaning God. We can infer from this food + gods business that the Mayans were pleased with their new discovery and its madly uplifting physical benefits.
Nature found it convenient to equip plants and mammals with some of the same defenses. Heartening news—and more proof that plant-vs-human horror movies are home-wreckers. Looks like you owe your Philodendron an apology.
