Episode 1 - We Are What We Eat[edit]

Humans need about 50g of protein a day. Protein is made from 21 amino acids. The body can make 12 of these, and the rest are called essential amino acids. Cooking eggs causes the protein chains to be untangled and denatured, and much easier to be absorbed by the body. The Mexican wrestler Shocker eats many eggs for protein.

Factory-farmed beef (fed on grain) does not allow cattle to get enough natural omega-3 fatty acids than grass-fed cattle; omega-3 is found in salmon and mackerel. Too much omega-6 fatty acids is linked to inflammatory diseases. Vitamin D allows the body to absorb calcium, at osteoblasts. Sunlight on mushrooms converts ergosterol in Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol), making mushrooms a good source of the vitamin. 80% of southern Europeans are lactose-intolerant, but only 5% of British people are.
