Too Much Protein. How Much is Too Much?

Looking to lose weight quickly in the New Year?

Got gout? How about kidney stones?

While high-protein consumption—above the current recommended dietary allowance for adults is increasing in popularity, there is a lack of data on its potential long-term adverse effects.

Until 2013 when studies were completed looking at the effects of a high-protein or high-meat diet. What they found with long-term high protein/high meat intake in humans were (a) disorders of bone and calcium homeostasis, (b) disorders of renal function, (c) increased cancer risk, (d) disorders of liver function, and (e) precipitated progression of coronary artery disease.

The present study’s findings suggest that there is currently no reasonable scientific basis in the literature to recommend protein consumption above the current RDA (high protein diet) for healthy adults due to its potential disease risks.

  1. Disorders of Bone and Calcium Homeostasis
  2. Disorders of Renal Function/kidney stones
  3. Increased Cancer Risk
  4. Disorders of Liver Function
  5. Precipitated Progression of Coronary Artery Disease

Despite the fact that a short-term high-protein diet could be necessary for several pathological conditions (malnutrition, sarcopenia, etc.), it is evident that “too much of a good thing” in a diet could be useless or even harmful for healthy individuals. Many adults or even adolescents (especially athletes or bodybuilders) self-prescribe protein supplements and overlook the risks of using them, mainly due to misguided beliefs in their performance-enhancing abilities.

Individuals who follow these diets are, therefore, at risk. Extra protein is not used efficiently by the body and may impose a metabolic burden on the bones, kidneys, and liver. Moreover, high-protein/high-meat diets may also be associated with an increased risk for coronary heart disease due to intakes of saturated fat and cholesterol or even cancer. Guidelines for diet should adhere closely to what has been clinically proven. By this standard, there is currently no basis for recommending high protein/high meat intake above the recommended dietary allowance for healthy adults.

Master of My Ways

There came a point in time when my skin no longer felt as though it was my own. As if my skin was telling me that it no longer wanted to be a part of my person.

Commitment to the outcome I desire.

My success is only limited by the energy I dedicate to the outcome I desire.


This is a starting point. I will be back to finish this shortly. Call it a brain bookmark…LoL

Friedrich Küchenmeister

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gottlieb Heinrich Friedrich Küchenmeister[1] (January 22, 1821, Buchheim (now Bad Lausick) – April 13, 1890 Dresden) was a German physician.

Life

Küchenmeister studied medicine in Leipzig and Prague, and in 1846 became a general practitioner in Zittau. In 1847 he married, and in 1856 he moved to Dresden. He conducted research on tapeworms, trichinosis, and other parasites and wrote about it several works. He was also publisher of the Allgemeine Zeitschrift für Epidemiologie(General Journal of Epidemiology). In 1852, his theory that bladder-worms are juvenile tapeworms gained the attention of the medical profession.[2][3] In the later 1850s, he carried out an experiment demonstrating this by feeding pork containing cysticerci of Taenia solium to prisoners awaiting execution, and after they had been executed, he recovered the developing and adult tapeworms in their intestines.[4][5][6] By the middle of the 19th century, it was established that cysticercosis was caused by the ingestion of the eggs of T. solium.[7]

Küchenmeister was an advocate of cremation, as he saw the risk of soil contamination in the putrefaction and decomposition products that occur after burial.[8] In Dresden, he founded the group The Urn: Association for Facultative Cremation. In 1876, he took part in the first European Congress of the Friends of Cremation, also in Dresden.[9]

Unusual variants of mycosis fungoides

Conventional presentations of mycosis fungoides may be diagnostically challenging, particularly in light of the controversial boundaries defining the disease. Variant presentations of this cutaneous T-cell lymphoma add a further layer of complexity, requiring a sophisticated and informed perspective when evaluating lymphoid infiltrates in the skin. Herein we discuss well-defined (WHO-EORTC) variants pagetoid reticulosis, granulomatous slack skin and folliculotropic mycosis fungoides as well as less well-defined morphologic/architectural variants, and divergent immunohistochemical presentations of this typically indolent T-cell lymphoproliferative disease.
