I've heard body builders take a lot of proteins so that they can build their muscles. Since taking too much certain nutrition can generally cause health problem (e.g. carbo-hydrates, salts, etc...), I thought the same goes for proteins too. So here comes my question:
- Can eating a lot of proteins cause damage to your health?
- Does this mean body builders who take a lot of proteins risk their health to build their muscles?
- Or, does the threshold of amount of eaten proteins which can be a risk for health depends on how much they are consumed to build muscles?
