Wow, i see your bias showing there, you better cover it before you trip on it.
How many people know their kidney function?
As has been said (by you as well I think) in another thread, how many people know something as simple as their BP? (a risk factor for kidney disease).
With current data showing ~11% of the adult population of the united states has some form of KD, who here knows if they have or not?
One in ten.
There are a whole lot more people who have no idea about their kidney function, than who actually do know.
Just as there is NO evidence that eating high protein is safe (high protiein from research setting is ~2g/kg, or 0.9g/lb, nowhere near the commonly recommended 1.5 - 2.0grams per lb)
THere is potential for positive effects, did I say otherwise? Just becuase I said there was potential for negatives does not mean there are no positives.
There is no research looking at the range of protein intakes routinely recommended here. Saying they are healthy with no evidence base to substantiate the claim is what?
Why assign healthy? to it at all, especially as there is no evidence at the protein ranges we are discussing?
THey are not potentially dangerous.
They ARE dangerous
Seeing as the bulk of the evidence that we have is based around moderate intakes, with the available evidence they are 'safe' for the general population
Thats nice, you just sound like a normal bodybuilder.
If 1gram of X is ok, 5g of X will create awsomeness.
Becuase that has already been said within this thread.
So I provided a counterpoint.
