From the Back Cover
Cut Through the Noise. Know the Research.
Protein Is Making Us Sick, Fat, and Tired.
Protein is not the key to weight loss. Animal protein is not the healthiest food we can eat. Carbs are not the enemy. In Proteinaholic, Dr. Garth Davis dispels the myths that have been perpetuated by our doctors, our weight loss experts, and the media; sets the record straight about contradictory studies and confusing headlines; and distills these findings into a straight-forward, plant-based solution that will change your life forever.

This text is particularly good at debunking the common myths - such as vegans have weaker bones the meat eaters (the reverse has been proven). It provides good material to refute the stupid arguments and behaviours vegans encounter from the ill-informed. It takes 'conventional wisdom' head one and I just wish that so many innocent and conned friends and relatives will read this book. This book has so many q uotables. I particularly liked the discussion about the difficulties and challenges of research - the smoke analogy for example; e.g. researching tobacco impact in a world with 100% smokers , how does one prove smoking causes cancer? I've ordered copies for my sons - just hoping they read it. It's very readable so here's hoping.
way that is easy to understand. Absolutely brilliant book as the heading says! I would definitely recommend it, particularly if you are considering taking Statins or blood pressure tablets or suffering from any serious illness. This book is amazing.
The reason that I bought the book was to see if I could get some insight into my own protein requirements as a vegan. The book spends most of the time dispelling myths about the quality and benefits of animal protein and I didn’t find that particularly relevant for me. The book summaries by saying, roughly, “you don’t need to supplement protein, but if you fancy it, go ahead”. I felt that reading a whole book for that closing statement was a bit of an anticlimax.
