Nutrition: Can you have too much protein?

by hellomagazine.com

Yes, according to the Harvard School Of Health. Digesting protein releases acids the body usually neutralises with calcium. And if you're on a high-protein diet, some of that calcium may be pulled from bone. It probably won't have much of an effect over a few weeks, say the academics, but maintained for a long time, the diet could produce a weakening of bone strength.
