Video: Animal Protein vs. Plant-Based Protein

Dr. Michael Greger discusses a public health case for modernizing the definition of protein quality.

Doctor’s Notes:

The benefits of calorie restriction may arise from the drop in animal protein intake. See Caloric Restriction vs. Animal Protein Restriction for more on this.

I also discuss branched chain amino acids in Are BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids) Healthy?

Do you need to combine plant proteins, like rice and beans? See The Protein Combining Myth.

How much protein do we need? See Do Vegetarians Get Enough Protein?

What about plant-based meats? Are Beyond Meat and the Impossible Burger Healthy?
