Performance Menu has just published a debate on amount/type of dietary protein for optimal health between Drs. Loren Cordain and T. Colin Campbell—some very interesting stuff on both sides.

“Protein plays a litany of roles in living systems: structural elements, peptide hormones, cell recognition, antibodies… the list is staggering and continues to grow as our understanding of biology expands. What, however, is the role of dietary protein in health and disease in humans? Is the source, type and quantity intimately and directly tied to optimal physical development and continued wellbeing? Is it causative or preventative of disease? How do we know, and how can we know?

One would think this question should be straightforward and easily answered; as you will soon see the question is anything but simple! In the pages that follow, two scientists at the top of their respective fields—Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Professor of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, author of The China Study and Dr. Loren Cordain Professor, Department of Health & Exercise Science, Colorado State University, author of The Paleo Diet—make their competing cases for the role of dietary protein in health and disease. “

caveat that I have not read the article YET. Very interesting, I had heard myriads of similar debates about types of fats and disease, health, optimal performance…not types of proteins, sounds intriguing.
