Whey protein is in milk. Nothing dangerous whatsoever, unless you take a ton of scoops per day (can cause liver damage if you use ridiculous amounts).
You sure about that liver damage?? They’ve done studies that prove that in those with healthy livers (read…not in renal failure) that a high protein diet had no ill effects.
“Renal” refers to the kidneys. Neither of you guys have a clue what you are talking about, lol.
To the OP, whey is totally safe no matter what your age is.
Ha… Didnt even notice that. Its just that usually all the talk is on kidney damage, so when I read liver (and typed it) I just made that mental switch to kidney since thats all anyone says.
Good catch, I’ll be more on the ball next time.[/quote]
Everyone dropped the ball that stuff will kill you, it screws your kidneys, your liver, and all your other organs. I don’t have any studies to prove it, but its true.
Not to mention I was told the other day by a co-worker who, ironically was eating wendy’s at the time, that my protein shake would make me go crazy and screw with my natural testosterone production and I need to eat real food without steroids in it!!! (True story-thats what I get for drinking a shake on my way out of work so I can stop at the gym on the way home I guess tho, a lot of ignorance).
***In case anyone didn’t pick it sarcasm, yes protein is absolutely safe. I just find it funny how people perpetuate myths without common sense or science.
