💪 WARNING: Protein Powders Can Cause Cancer
Do protein powders cause cancer?
Well, the surprising answer is “yes”, they can and I’ll tell you about this in a minute.
However, let’s first qualify what is considered a protein powder?
Protein powders are powdered forms of protein that come from plants (soybeans, peas, rice, potatoes, or hemp), eggs, or milk (casein or whey protein). The powders may include other ingredients such as added sugars, artificial flavoring, thickeners, vitamins, and minerals.
These days, collagen and bone-broth protein is also very popular.
There’s even red meat protein powder as well.
I mention this, because most people think it’s just “whey or milk” protein, but there are lots of other forms.
So, let’s continue with the cancer causing protein powders…
Yes – Protein Powders Linked To Cancer
Earlier this year, a nonprofit group called the Clean Label Project released a report about toxins in protein powders. Researchers screened 134 products for 130 types of toxins and found that many protein powders contained heavy metals (lead, arsenic, cadmium, and mercury), bisphenol-A (BPA, which is used to make plastic), pesticides, or other contaminants with links to cancer and other health conditions.
Some toxins were present in significant quantities. For example, one protein powder contained 25 times the allowed limit of BPA.
How could protein powder contain so many contaminants? The Clean Label Project points to manufacturing processes or the existence of toxins in the soil (absorbed by plants that are made into protein powders).
Not all of the protein powders that were tested contained elevated levels of toxins. You can see the results at the Clean Label Project’s website.
But I’m Still Eating My Protein Powder
So at this point, you may be thinking what you should do? Or, maybe, what do I personally do since in my previous videos you’ve heard me mention I have protein powders.
First, I’m not too concerned with this study. It’s just one. If it was replicated many times by other companies, it would be something else.
Besides, there’s always two sides to a story.
Vegetables are healthy – but not if they’ve been genetically modified and have been sprayed with pesticides and other cancer-causing agents, correct?
Fish is healthy – if it’s wild caught salmon for example. NOT farm-raised, soy-fed, fake tilapia.
Fat is very good for every cell in your body and it’s essential.
Is this making sense?
It’s All About The Source
Same with protein powders… What TYPE is it? Where is it sourced?
What you eat is important. But what IT ate is even MORE important.
The cheap, “weight gain” powders, that contain artificial sweeteners, sugars and other junk are NOT good for you. They cause stomach problems…
Here’s What I Eat
Unfortunately, when I was younger – these junky protein powders is what I used, we didn’t have good stuff.
Then I started to use better quality powders – such as MetRx and EAS.
Later, I formulated my own because I wanted the best. I wanted easy digestion. I didn’t want anything artificial or additives.
And same with these days, I still consume protein powders, but they’re custom made for ME and I’ll show you how you can do the same, for yourself.
And don’t worry, it’ll actually be cheaper. So, you’ll save money AND be healthier.
However, before I start – Most of your meals should consist of REAL, solid protein sources – animal or vegetable.
