    Aniaml protein is bad for you, it causes your body to be much more inflammed. so you are best off avoiding it. Humans are not well equipped for eating it either, if you look at anatomy comparison we are closer to a horse(Herbivore) than a grizzly bear(omnivore). we are closest to frugivores though, which is 0-5% meat.

      Actually our teeth are closer to that of a pig's than a horse. Pigs are omnivores NOT herbivores,Also we are not frugivores. ALL of the greater primates are omnivorous, of which humans are primates, and classed as a greater primate.

    it comes with animal fat and that is dangerous.

    A friend of mine had studied to become a doctor. 

    He knows I'm vegan and has no problem with it.  He told me that stomach acids break down foods and it does not matter if protein comes from animals or plants.

    Anyone claiming you need animal protein is wrong.

    Hundreds of thousands of healthy vegans are living proof of that.

      Then tell that to those who such as myself for medical reasons doesn't absorb vitamin 12 that well. Lose the pseudo science claims that does NOT hold up, under the critical science requirements.

    Why would it be dangerous? It's a part of the natural, human diet.

    No animal protein is NOT dangerous to us, unless there's some underlying issue(s). Anyone who states otherwise is promoting pseudo science, as scientific fact which it is not. However as with any food type, to much of any one type can be unhealthy. There's only about one scenario where in animal based protein could/would be dangerous. However it would first require that a person be allergic to fish/seafood/shellfish, and all poultry/fowl. Then they'd  have to be bitten by a carrier of the alpha gal antigen, at least once, which then would cause a delayed reaction to the animal based carbohydrate found in mammalian flesh. However the odds are not exactly favorable for that occurring, yet it very well could happen, and the likelihood is that at some point it will.

    Those though that has contracted the alpha gal antigen, the reaction while delayed, range from very mild, to very severe. To date though only one death has actually been attributed to the alpha gal antigen.However usually it's not a lifetime issue, as most recover from it anywhere for the luckiest ones, from about six months to about eight years. The length of time is variable it seems, based on the severity.

    Some can be. I think the Coronavirus is proof of that.
