As you will see in the study conducted, diet
and disease are related. We are
affected by what we eat, for good or bad.
Cheese: A delicious waxy substance that smells a bit
funny, is filled with holes, and tastes quite
especially in fondues.
Alzheimer's: That disease of dementia in which

The building blocks of proteins are amino acids. The
factor making animal protein so unhealthy for human
consumption is the abundance of sulfur-based amino
such as methionine and homocysteine.
Homocysteine has been linked to heart disease by

study in history, the Framingham Study.
The key to understanding heart disease is

There are 28 amino acids in nature. Your body's liver
manufactures 19 of them. The other 9 are called

Methionine is one such "essential" amino

Animal proteins contain greater amounts of methionine

contain high levels of methionine, which has sulfur as
center atom. The sulfur converts to sulfates and

Cow's milk = .083 grams of methionine
Soy milk = .040 grams
SOLID FOOD COMPARISON
Mori-Nu silken soft tofu = .074 grams
Chicken (broiled breast meat, no skin) = .859 grams
Swiss cheese = .784 grams
Parmesan cheese = .958 grams
Cow's milk contains twice as much methionine as does
milk. Chicken has nearly 12 times the amount of
