During one of the many episodes during which Dr. Piero Mozzi gives his opinion on nutrition, Mozzi explains to a vegan why the vegan diet, in his opinion, is not indicated in cases of autoimmune diseases and would even be harmful.
All of our biological mechanisms start from protein-based mechanisms, and if the proper proteins are not there, according to one's genetic programming, damage is created, and not only would a vegan diet not help solve cases of serious diseases but could, in fact, be counterproductive.
There has been much debate on the subject in recent years, especially, after the release of books that became best sellers in professing a diet that excluded the use of animal-derived proteins, we refer in particular to The China Study by T. Colin Campbell.
In the video, which I recommend you listen to carefully, Dr. Mozzi explains why, on the other hand, a diet other than vegan, and including the right proteins from meat and fish, is not only advisable but essential for warding off and resolving difficult-to-treat conditions such as autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, autoimmune thyroiditis, and connectivitis.
In order to truly appreciate the validity and truthfulness and honesty of this doctor (so rare these days) I recommend that you read his books.
"This book aims to bring attention to nutrition and the implications it has on the human body.
The intent of the text is 'to give everyone, even those with no medical knowledge, the opportunity to keep track of their health. It's a practical manual that gives us a chance to understand what's going on in our bodies."
