    WHY:    "Whey protein has been the gold standard of
            the fitness industry," said Axiom founder,
            David Janow, "but that may be changing.
            Intolerance to lactose affects nearly 70%
            of the world's population. Hormones used
            in cow farming are passed on in larger
            concentrations through dairy products than
            through cow meat. We've heard how hormones
            in cow milk is affecting early puberty.
            Soy protein is losing popularity after
            learning about phytoestrogens. Allergen-
            free plant-based protein is now being
            proven to rival whey protein."

            "As a leading sports nutrition research
            facility at the University of Tampa,
            Department of Health Sciences and Human
            Performance, we've worked with NFL, MLB
            and IFBB athletes," said Dr. Jacob Wilson
            who oversaw the double blind study at the
            University of Tampa. "Rice protein can
            assist muscle adaptations in a way that
            was not scientifically proven until now."
