Our expert says:
If you consume more protein than recommended per day then you may damage your kidneys. In general, humans can have a relatively high protein intake without a problem, but it is the fats and cholesterol that are usually associated with high-protein foods that can become problematic. If you eat a high protein diet using plant proteins (e.g. legumes and soy products), this problem does not arise. It is, therefore, advisable to keep your daily protein intake within reasonable limits to avoid excess fat and cholesterol intake. A very high protein intake can also leach calcium out of the skeleton and may contribute to osteoporosis.
