    Again, body builders should be all lined up for liver transplants if it were to be believed.
    I don't think bodybuilders are known for being particularly healthy.

    Some of the specific autopsy findings were an extremely muscular physique with an almost complete absence of subcutaneous fat, a liver that contained numerous table tennis ball-sized tumors (with half the liver consisting simply of a crumbly mass that was similar to polystyrene)

    The inquest was told fitness fan Dean, 39, from Rochdale Lancs., first
    developed health problems in 2010, when multiple tumours were found in his
    liver.

    Bodybuilders have a mortality rate 34% higher than that of the age-matched U.S. male population

    My opinions and some justification

      But the question is, are these problems due to excessive protein?

      Using the .5-1 gr per pound of lean body weight, which I think Mark adheres to, I'd be doing 175g/day for the upper end. That 56g/day figure must be for a slight man doing nothing more strenuous than a tough bowel movement.

        Their lives are not controlled experiments, so it's impossible to say. My point was that the argument "bodybuilders do it, so it must be okay" is not valid, because bodybuilders are not okay.

          Agree.

          Some of the ones I know were the first to jump on the bandwagon with new and untested theories about mass quantities of odd things "from the depths of the Amazon" in the hopes that it would give them some kind of edge.
          Durp.
