Could you please substantiate this? Thanks.

If protein doesn’t make you rich and grow hair, then what the fuck are we eating it for?

Please show us one study performed on healthy individuals that showed any level of protein was dangerous.

Good luck.

LMAO Ohhh, that was the highlight of my day. Good times.

It’s made by praying. Lifting doesn’t make you big. It’s saying oh shit and praying when you see big ass weights that makes you big.

It is possible to OD on protein. Buy cheap bulk protein, take about 200 g, and man. Death by gas.

Wtf? Too much protein is bad for you.Too much of anything can be bad for you. If any of you think that too much isn’t bad for you then you’re wrong.Too much protein is bad for your kidney etc…There are plenty of studys that have been done showing that too much protein isn’t good for you.Do a search on it. I’m sure you’ve passed 2nd grade right?Do it.

Look how mad you guys get.I think someone has been brainwashed by the atkins industry,lol. Protein,or high protein diets aren’t bad for you.But there is a fine line between HIGH PROTEIN DIETS AND TOO MUCH PROTEIN.Too much protein isn’t good for you.You don’t have to be bill gates to understand that.

So according to this whole, protein is bad for you thing, my kidneys should have exploded long ago. Actually they should be exploding on a daily basis if eating more than 100 grams a day is bad for you. Heck I think I will check the site for a survey and if it is not here already i will post one and find out how much most T-men are eating daily as far as protein goes.
DA

I think it was Too Short who wrote a song about a certain protein overdose killing someone

Some of you need to learn to read.I never said 100 grams of protein a day was bad for you,not even 300 grams is bad for you.All I’m saying is over doing it can cause some problems.There was a study done in 1989 on this subject.Do some research on it.Like I said.There is a HUGE difference between high protein diets and TOO MUCH protein.

Your kidny/liver can only handle so much protein.Like I said.Too much of ANYTHING can be bad for you. Protein isn’t bad for you.Fat isn’t bad for you.Carbohydrates aren’t bad for you.But too much can be bad. That link that kid gave us is a website funded by pissed off vegetarians.

They said something like 30 grams of protein is enough…yeah for the average adult who doesn’t lift weights.If you’re trying to build muscle you neeed atleast 1 gram per pound of bodyweight.Smoke some weed if you have to,but calm the fuck down.

I didn’t think you could reference a legitimate study on this topic. I’m involved in research in this field and have never seen a study that showed a negative effect from any level of protein on healthy kidneys.

When making ridiculous claims it helps to have something to back them up. Just saying that there are studies on the topic doesn’t cut it.

I would say “produce or shut up,” but claims like this are pretty funny.
