Protein intake – effects on longevity, aging and cancer

9,120 views Add as favorite
Why are all good low-carb diets high in fat, like an LCHF diet, and not high in protein?
Could excessive protein in the diet be a problem for aging and cancer?

Dr. Ron Rosedale’s has been talking about this for a long time. Here’s his highly interesting presentation from this year’s Low Carb Vail conference. This talk has only been available for our members before (check out our free trial), but now everyone can watch it above.
