Questions and Answers about PROTEIN

Check out these common questions about protein, with my answers: Q&A Question: What about “PERFECT PROTEINS?” Aren’t those the best? Answer: No, not at all. A “perfect” protein just means it very closely matches human flesh. In fact, proteins from plants, where the body builds from the “raw materials” of amino acids (protein’s building blocks) […]
