The body has an optimum percentage of protein that it needs each day. Think of it like a sweet spot that you want to hit. Let’s use a houseplant as a metaphor.

These are the slides from my talk on The China Study and plant based protein from the 2015 Vegetarian Food Festival.

Learn more about The China Study right now by going to the site: chinastudydiet.com, where you can watch his free 30 minute video class on how to eat healthy on the China Study Diet.

  16. 1. Food is Medicine: How food affects cancer growth 2. Four Experiments 3. Eating on The China Study Diet TAKEAWAYS
  17. HOW FOOD GROWS CANCER
  18. The Three Stages of Cancer Growth 1. Seeds 2. Grow 3. Out of Control
  19. 1. Initiation (Seeds) The cancer seeds are known as carcinogens. They enter your body through the everyday harmful chemicals that you let in through air, water and food.
  20. 1. Initiation (Seeds) “[Initiation] is the time required for the chemical carcinogen to be consumed, absorbed into the blood, transported into the cells, changed into its active product, bonded to DNA and passed on to the daughter cells. When the new daughter cells are formed, the process is complete.” [49] “The entire stage [of initiation] can take place in a short period of time, even minutes.”
  21. 2. Promotion (The Seeds Grow) Just like seeds in the soil, the initial cancer cells will not grow and multiply unless the right conditions are met. The seeds in the soil (for example) need a healthy amount of water, sunlight and other nutrients before they become a full lawn. [50]
  22. 3. Progression (Cancer Grows Out of Control) This is the stage that we “discover” that we have cancer. Prevention is over, it’s time to treat the cancer with a doctor’s prescriptions and therapy.
  23. 3. Progression (Cancer Grows Out of Control) “Progression begins when a bunch of advanced cancer cells progress in their growth until they have done their final damage. It is like the fully-grown lawn invading everything around it: the garden, driveway and sidewalk. When the cancer takes on these deadly properties, it is considered malignant [50].”
  24. Takeaway: There are 3 Stages of Cancer Growth There are three stages of cancer growth: initiation, promotion, and progression.
  25. Takeaway: There are 3 Stages of Cancer Growth There are three stages of cancer growth: initiation, promotion, and progression. The first and second stages are preventable. The third stage kills you.
  26. THE CHINA STUDY: FOUR EXPERIMENTS
  27. EXPERIMENT #1: DOES PROTEIN INTAKE AFFECT CANCER INITIATION?
  28. Enzyme Activity
  29. “Enzyme activity could be easily modified simply by changing the level of protein intake [52]”
  30. EXPERIMENT #2: DOES PROTEIN INTAKE AFFECT CANCER PROMOTION?
  31. EXPERIMENT #2: DOES PROTEIN INTAKE AFFECT CANCER INITIATION? Animals fed higher-protein (20%) produced substantially more foci, while animals fed lower-protein (5%) produced substantially less foci. [56]
  32. Foci: precursor clusters of cells that grow into tumors. Although most foci do not become full-blown tumor cells, they are predictive of tumor development. [54]
  33. “One idea seemed to be clear: lower protein intake dramatically decreased tumor initiation [53]”
  34. EXPERIMENT #3 WHICH WOULD CAUSE MORE CANCER GROWTH? VS.
  35. The experiment here showed that a higher dose of Aflatoxin (remember that’s the carcinogen), and a lower protein intake, resulted in lower foci (tumor clusters).
  36. A SIGNIFICANT FINDING
  37. Foci developed only when the animals met or exceeded the amount of protein (12%) needed to satisfy their body growth rate. That is, when the animals met and surpassed their requirements for protein, disease onset began [58].
  38. THE BODY HAS A OPTIMUM % OF PROTEIN IT NEEDS
  39. The body has a sweet spot for how much protein it needs
  40. 10% 12% 15% The body has a sweet spot for how much protein it needs
  41. 3 ounces of meat (21 grams) What 10% Animal Protein Looks Like 1 Yogurt (11 grams) 1 Glass of Milk (8 grams)
  42. THE BIG PAYOFF
  43. “For all of the experiments so far, T Colin Campbell was using casein (mostly protein from cow’s milk) as the main protein he was testing. So the next logical question… was whether plant protein (as opposed to animal protein), tested in the same way, has the same effect on cancer as casein [59].”
  44. Does plant protein affect cancer initiation and promotion?
  45. NO. IT DIDN’T Does plant protein affect cancer initiation and promotion?
  46. “Gluten, the protein of wheat, did not produce the same result as casein, even when fed at the same 20% level. [59]”
  47. The main takeaway: Nutrients from animal-based foods increased tumor development while nutrients from plant-based foods decreased tumor development.
  48. FOOD IS MEDICINE?
  49. WILL YOU GET CANCER FROM SMOKING?
  50. MORE LIKELY BUT NOT 100%
  51. HOW DOES THE CHINA STUDY RECOMMEND I EAT
  52. FOOD IS MEDICINE
  53. ONE SENTENCE “Eat a whole food, plant-based diet , while minimizing the consumption of refined foods, added salt and added fats.”
  54. 3 SMALL STEPS 1. Eat Plants: eat the rainbow, as many colors as close to their natural state as possible 2. Eat less animal protein: less meat, fish, eggs and milk 3. Avoid processed foods: less sugars, starchy carbohydrates and vitamin supplement
  55. GIVE IT ONE MONTH
  56. 1. You’ll discover new foods 2. You’ll feel better 3. You’ll find it’s easier than you thought. THE PROMISE
