This one is easy, the answer is no! In this week's controversial thoughts video I break this down and provide multiple interventional studies that corroborate my position. Diets up to 3.3g/kg have been studied and do not show any adverse events on kidney function. Why would they? We know from the anthropology literature that hunter-gatherer groups like the Hadza (who I visited earlier this year) and the !kung San often eat up to 4.5 lbs of meat per day when a large game animal has been successfully hunted. Curious about an #animalbased diet? Join us this August @heartandsoilsupplements for our next #AnimalBased30, a 30 day challenge to eat an #animalbased diet and kick lots of ass. Take the pledge at www.animalbased30.com. PS this video also contains a study about the utility of vaccination in those previously infected with COVID. #theremembering
