Amount of protein on the diet

The website currently recommend 1gm/kg of lean body mass at the ideal weight.

I have been reading Dr Rosedale's blogs and found one called "Protein: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" where he states:
"Most people, I’ll put on .7 or .75 grams per kilogram of lean body mass.

But if I’ve got a diabetic, and I really want to reverse their aging, which means reverse their diabetes, because diabetis is a model of aging, I’ll put them down to .5 or .6 grams per kilogram of lean body mass per day."

That is a lower limit of 0.5gm/kg. This was written in 2011.
Is this still valid? Or has Dr Rosedale updated the figures, so the 0.5 is now obsolete?

    To my knowledge everything is still valid - diet is still working for me after these 5 years.
