No risk for protein deficiency as a vegan

Did you know that human protein needs are actually quite small... As infants we grew very quickly on a diet (human breast milk) that contains only 5% of its calories as protein. Most Americans today get 15-20% of their calories from proteins, and that contributes to many health problems, including gout, kidney stones and kidney disease, osteoporosis, and all sorts of other problems related to inflammation. In fact, Cornell nutritional biochemist T. Colin Campbell, PhD, who led the most comprehensive large study (China Study) ever completed on diet and disease, is convinced that consumption of animal proteins, especially from cow milk, causes more cancers than does any chemical carcinogen.
