Your Protein Powder Might Kill You! Clickbait title – got you! But for real, this is what Consumer Reports basically said in a recent article. They accused protein powders of being laced with lead, mercury, and for those of you related to superheroes, kryptonite. By the time you read this article, you will learn two thing.

“For the vast majority of people, protein supplements are not dangerous, and it would be very difficult to overdose on them,” says Dr. Mehmet Oz, who notes that mom-of. The supposed dangers of protein are a popular subject.

Some say that a high protein intake can reduce calcium in bones, cause osteoporosis or even destroy your kidneys. This article takes a.

But if you regularly consume protein powder, you may want to reconsider the possible risks coming with your protein boost: A new study shows that 53 of 134 of the top-selling protein powders have substantially elevated levels of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and BPA. If the protein powder is vanilla flavor, it will make a really good combination with OJ.

The same goes for flavors like strawberry, blueberry, and even chocolate. 3. Make a Milkshake. You may hate your whey protein now, but if you make a milkshake out of it, the chances are you. You can meet your body’s daily protein requirements whether you drink shakes or eat only whole foods. However, they don’t offer equal nutrition.

However, they don’t offer equal nutrition. If you normally work out for half an hour a few times a week, but now you’ve decide to train for a half-marathon, your body will need more protein. When you’re recovering from an injury. Specifically, direct, long-lasting heat damages “amino acid bioavailability,” meaning it your body has a harder time digesting and using the protein. Whey becomes harder to digest at 167.

We’re talking here about the risk of consuming protein powder. And specifically the risk that comes from heavy metals like arsenic and led. I’ve.

Too much protein produces an excess of ammonia — a toxic protein breakdown product that can damage the liver, kidneys, and brain before the body turns it into less harmful urea.

Although no stores of protein exist as such, with an upper limit of body protein regardless of habitual intake in healthy individuals, considerable protein depletion can occur without serious, life-threatening consequences for health.

  • @theUSER101 Funny you say that. I take the Wellness Formula, and I swear by it. I take it on the onset of any illness and it stops it cold. I would like to see these studies you are referring to, as you’re making some pretty bold claims. Though wholefood vitamins are the same molecules, they are protein bonded which provides better absorption. These nutrients occur naturally in raw whole foods together as they were intended to be absorbed synergistically.

  • Adequate amounts of amino acids? What about a person that works out regularly. Andi mean weight lifting. To build lots of muscle, you need lots of protein.

  • Supplimental protein powder or whey protein isolate is safe if you are creating a condition in you body where it is needed. Amino acids are good too. If you aren’t exercising regularly, a healthy person doesn’t need it. But active people, like body builders need it to get the protein necessary to build muscle without taking in too many calories and getting fat. Soy isolate is estrogenic, as are some dairy products like some brands of milk. Chicken is a great source, but may contain hormones as well. Beef too. Canned tuna contains mercury. Many foods contain heavy medals but contain too little protein to get the adequate amounts for muscle growth for a 200 plus pound man like myself without over shooting daily caloric intake. Just get a quality product and eat as organic as you can. I think a lot of foods out there may be worse than the protein powders.

  • How do the levels compare to other common foods? Where is the data and why wasn’t this peer reviewed? Metals are naturally occurring and its the actual level of each above scientifically determined thresholds that matters. Lack of transparency is a red flag.

  • I can testify to this. I was taking in 300 grams of total protein a day. Including 3 shakes. Plus pro hormones. They did mess me up in a few year period. I am now cleaning out my entire system and not touching protein, except natural. Experiencing better results too.

  • I still remember that stupid person I met at university. I actually just wanted to have a meal with him and some other people from our seminar, and he kept talking about eating meat, and how what I was eating wasn’t good, and blah. It was impossible to have a reasonable conversation with him about anything ELSE…. He told me that he was eating a joghurt in the morning now, to LOWER his cholesterol!
    There are so many extremly dumb people at university.

  • You are right. even i was very sad since i workout well for abs but nothing was coming. And one of my friend working in fitness field suggested me this 7 secret food items to kill our jelly belly. have a look here bit.ly/14JFVNd?=nusfv

  • Carbohidrates,sugar and grains cause more cardiovascular problems,also plants contain oxalates and fruit contains sugar but yeah…….

  • @friskystapler yea thats what i meant. if these people are to be held accountable then supermarket owners should be too. and we all know thats retarded

  • @pxlmzwx yes i mean it. even i was very sad since i workout well for abs but nothing was coming. btw!but ye The surprising part is my friend who is not doing much excercises, maintaining his six pack with this secret food items. get to know here: bit.ly/MIpKJP?=gqgcrl

  • All this talk about “too much” is obviously bad for you because that’s what too much by definition means but no one seems to know how much is too much

  • Excellent work. I’m a family doctor, I just read The China Study
    I’m going 100% #WFPB
    Keep up the fantastic work. I’m using your vids for my patients

  • What s wrong with the food industry in America…seriously. Since when does the fda approve Mercury lead and arsenic in your plate. The best part is that it retails in the health corner, good sense of humor… But shhhh it makes money…

  • The analogies weren’t the best, but it’s good that you’re spreading the message that there’s nothing wrong with cooking protein powder. Anyone that wants to learn more should just look up protein structure and the difference between primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary structure and the effect of denaturation. Another interesting thing to look up would be pyrolysis reactions, which only tend to occur with proteins in direct contact with the heat source and in the absence of water during cooking.

  • Mic or anyone, here’s a problem: Chronometer, which is referred to often as a way to evaluate your diet, suggests that I, for example, get 112 grams of protein a day! That’s 72 grams more than the Okinawans. Why????

  • wow, those sales people weren’t doing anything wrong. They don’t deserve to be put on candid camera and criticized for telling you protein is safe. It’s a macronutrient, it’s not dangerous

  • Anything in excess is going to hurt you…. Too much animal protein… Cause gout or heart attack etc. Too much sugar, saturated fats… Too much caffeine, etc…. Bad air quality, lack of fiber or lack of exercise… Too much alcohol, smoking, too much stress….

  • Thanks for the info Navid. I’m new to his channel; don’t know much about Sean, as there’s no bio or anything other than the supplement website. I guess I used the word “opinion” because there are no reference links posted (I like those), & as I said, those I found were pretty much split 50/50 on the subject. Although when it comes to nutrition, that’s often the norm. Again, not a super important subject, but if we spend good $ on whey powders, I wouldn’t want to waste it by cooking with it.

  • Good to know, but when will we get videos for rubik’s cube or electrical cord recipes? I hear they are packed with protein just waiting to be denatured!

  • wow that what you said is so so so spot on protein can be a killer if you take to much like sugar and salt as we need them too but very small amounts,

  • That got chicks spray tan is probably unhealthy to. Should look into what goes into that and what you end up breathing in from it. Glad she gave us the info

  • @theUSER101 speaking of which…shouldn’t you be digging out one of these studies that backs up everything you’re talking about? still waiting…

  • I’m from Papua New Guinea and as far as i know my people don’t eat human brain to commemorate the dead. And neither are we cannibals. That’s the kind of misconception that has ruined the name of our country. I am not refuting what is said in this video because if it is medically backed up then its fine. But, as far as i know we’ve never had to eat anyone’s brain. We maybe a developing country but we certainly are not brain eaters.

  • Like he does with all his videos. This guy is flip flopping between facts and data that he has cherry picked to confirm his bias towards a vegan diet. He is completely ignoring the associated data that balances the facts he has chosen.

    Get real Mic. Before you do any more videos PLEEESE go off and do a course on statistical analysis of data

    Anyway, Lets get a few thing straight Mic.
    Animal products MAY cause stroke and cardiovascular disease. But Strokes and cardiovascular disease have other very common causes as well. To put all those high numbers of deaths down to eating animal protein is WRONG, and in this case is also being dishonest..
    Causes of cardiovascular disease (not in order of importance) over-consumption of meat (there, I said it Mic, but the emphasis is on over-consumption, not the meat itself) Poor diet (mainly sugars and fats) smoking lack of exercise alcohol consumption stress family genetic history and the biggest factor of all, AGE!
    The average age for a first heart attack is 65. That means there are as many heart attacks from the last couple of decades of life as there are in the previous 6-7 decades. Only 4 10 percent of cardiovascular disease occurs under the age of 45.

    We all die of something Mic. After 70 our body has had its day, and even vegans are going to die within the next two or three decades. Organs wearing out is entirely natural and is the fate of the majority of us.

    Putting all these causes and age brackets into the equation and you have very different statistics for death by cardiovascular disease, (the same applies to strokes and cancer. To hang these deaths as eating animal protein as being the main cause is wrong, poor science, and as I said before, dishonest.

    To attempt to use information like this to persuade people to change their diet to a vegan diet is immoral.

    To say that The western world is obsessed with protein, is just ridiculous. Humans all over the globe eat animal protein as a NORMAL and natural part of their diet. There are no vegan cultures anywhere on the globe, and never have been.

    The majority of meat eating humans in the world are going to live full and healthy lives.

  • “Don’t eat other people’s brains” Uhh, did you forget about Mad Cow Disease/BSE? It’s the reason your beef is still banned in the USA. I’d say “don’t eat any brains or any cannibalistic animal.”

  • While cooking natural protein powder is perfectly good, a lot of flavored protein powders contain artificial sweeteners that become toxic at high temperatures and should not be used for cooking. If you want to cook with protein powder, I advise to buy natural whey and not use normal flavored whey.

  • the purpose of protein drinks is to avoid unwanted extra things like fats… if u eat high protein food, u can’t also avoid ingesting unwanted fats & sodium…

  • I tried this product and it had absolutely great effect

    Comment on my post if you also are benefited with this product.

  • thank you so much for sharing this! lot of my clients ask me about this and this video explains it all I will share it! thanks again

  • CBS! THE FEAR MONGER MEDIA!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA! STOP DRINKING PROTEINS & TAKING SUPPLEMENTS & GO GET A FLU SHOT!!!!

  • Mic, thanks for the videos you create. I’m a woman dealing with infertility and every doctor out there from the OBGYN to the reproductive endocrinologist recommends the ideal fertility diet to be one high in animal protein. Some even have studies on this type of diet (Linking website with podcast interview: https://creatingafamily.org/infertility-category/infertility-radio-shows/what-to-eat-in-preparation-for-ivf/ ). Would you consider making an episode around veganism and fertility? It starts to make me question, Do I need to eat high protein to conceive? Obviously I don’t ever want to go back to eating meat, but when so many of the experts are saying it’s necessary to conceive, what do you do?

  • Excellent Video clip! Excuse me for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you thought about Yenabriel Deadlift Smasher (probably on Google)? It is an awesome one off product for discovering a secret to skyrocketed your deadlift without the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my mate after many years got cool results with it.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgfvVQZjhOI Does Cooking Protein Powder Destroy or Denature it? I’m having a ton of fun editing these videos! Are you guys liking them? What questions would you like to see me answerl?  #proteinpowder   #cookingprotein   #denature

  • Exactly Listen if you OVERDOSE if you take EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS also daily recommended amounts are good for your hair because your hair is made from dead cells and protein also it helps prevent certain cancers and fight certain cancers also helps with plaq and much more look it up on the doctors pages

  • When I found out we start losing collagen in our mid 20’s, that’s what got me to take collagen seriously. Every single day. I often see collagen (powder, liquid) as a vitamin or medicine I have to take every day so that I don’t have to take it on and off like before.

  • 1:38 people who drink protein suppliments and have those listed problems all have 1 thing in common. NOT ENOUGH WATER!
    before anyone even thinks about buying a protein shake of any type they should be drinking more than enough water already, thats far more important than protein and another thing these drinks dont pack on muscle, they are only useful if you can get a well balanced meal because for example your not going to get home in time for a meal, a balance meal is1 million times better!

  • This is true I took a protein powder don’t want to mention the name after 5 days that powder finished I started feeling tomuch gas pain and bloating now I got constipation and diarrhea. Abdominal pain.Pls don’t take protien supplements.

  • the first time a took protein drink i got a rash it was killing me in my upper body area… i culdnt do anything my body was read in the chest and stomach area. i took it a week later becuz i wanted to see if it was from the protein drink.. i got a the measles these big thick red spots were all over my body it itched and hurt really bad i culdnt sleep at night…

  • The FDA needs to regulate all supplements now. This is like taking illicit heroin off of the street. You don’t know what you are consuming.

  • “The money power preys upon the nation in time of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me, and causes me to tremble for the safety of our country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the republic is destroyed. “
    -Abraham Lincoln

  • I have been using bulletproof collagen for three months and I’ve noticed that my fingernails have gotten paperthin and splitting I wonder if that has something to do with what is going on physically or is this a coincidence any ideas

  • Kudos for the Video! Apologies for chiming in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you thought about Chireetler Immediate Muscle Rule (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a smashing one off guide for learning some fast muscle building techniques without the headache. Ive heard some great things about it and my buddy at last got excellent results with it.

  • I want to take some protein powder cookie dough and make a Protein Chef cookie and eat it. Yum…….:-D  Okay, that was a bit Hannibal. I’m still going to do it next time I make cookies!  Yay!   I’ll make an amigo cookie too.

  • Everything that Sean said in this video is scientific fact, not opinion based. I studied Cell Biology and Health Sciences in University and I can tell you that Sean’s one of the few people in this industry who actually has a very thorough understanding of this stuff. Nonetheless, it’s always important to research things for yourself instead of just believing someone in a video, but always make sure to look up facts…not opinions! Thanks for another informative video Sean!

  • The problem is that the whole milk and eggs are very high in cholesterol. Protein drinks give you the protein without the high animal fat.

  • I know the last part is a joke, but sadly it’s true. Any food that you eat that is part of the central nervous system can have prions. I want to eat brain though, the taste is so unique.

  • What a joke. If you are serious about gaining muscle you need a protein supplement. It would be extremely difficult to get the 1-1.5 grams of protien per pound of your weight by just eating foods throughout the day. The media loves to sensationalize and throw up red flags. I’ll take the “dangers” of my 2 shakes a day as opposed to the people who down 2 Liters of soda daily, partially hydrogenated oils and trans fat.

  • An infection that causes my IQ to drop drastically, difficulty to speak, hard to walk properly and some urge to eat brains?
    I wonder… Where have I heard of this before? ಠಿ_ಠ

  • @theUSER101 I’m sorry, you’re wrong. Homeopathic products are actually allowed to make claims while supplements are not. If supplements do make claims, they are required to have the FDA disclaimer. Salespeople are required by DSHEA to follow certain guidelines while selling. Most supplements are not placebos. You see, studies done on fake products, won’t have effects, because they aren’t real. there are plenty of respected companies that make quality nutritional supplements.

  • Prions are, in fact, so difficult to eradicate that any instruments used on a patient found to have a prion disease must be destroyed, because they can never be entirely sterilised and it only takes one prion to cause an infection.

  • First off when the hidden camera guy asked if he takes a lot will he bulk up and the clerk said yes THATS 100% TRUE. Eat more than you burn off and you gain more. How is that a scam/false/or even bad?!??

  • That’s a dumb question. Of course they can. Some proteins make your cells divide even when they shouldn’t leading to tumors. Other proteins transcribe rna into proteins even if this rna came from a virus. Parasites use proteins to replicate. Every process in every living organism involves proteins, and surprise, some biological processes kill people.

  • I can allready see a zombie movie in the makes just with that disease
    THE LAUGHING DEAD.
    The movie that will shake your brains out and make you lose your sleep.

  • @GaiasBatweasel there is little to no protein in vegetables my friend. and even if you consume 100g of protein from soy protein drinks or even salads n stuff your body only absorbs 33% of it. eggs are the best protein source because 100% is absorbed.

  • Um hello! That Italian family needs to stop breeding all together! Why would you want to knowingly pass your child/children a FATAL disease!!?

  • Is there a protein supplement that’s just protein? No sugar or carbs but just protein? Seems like its just better to eat chicken or turkey instead of protein powder.

  • ummm weird question over here.
    we know that cocking alter the protein’s shapes
    so if they have cocked the brains would the disease still be carried?
    just a question for no reason at all

  • My gym teacher (use to be a personal trainer) said most people eat more protein than they need each day. Remember to much of a good thing is dangerous…..if you go crazy with protein

  • You forgot to mention that there is protein aka amino acids, in every fruit and vegetable and that we don’t need to eat what are traditionally considered to be high protein foods your cottage cheese to get them. Only mentioning animal products as sources of protein is very old fashioned and actually rather poor science!

  • would love a protein powder with pea protein, taurine, bromelain, creatine, B12 and caffeine (for a little kick) and real dried fruits for flavor.

  • Consuming protein, cholesterol, and saturated fat does not cause heart disease or cancer. However, excessive carbs (sugar) definitely can. As far as protein goes, your body breaks down consumed protein into amino acids and makes its own protein.

    Would you (or anyone else) care to show how amino acids cause heart disease and cancer? The same goes for the consumption of cholesterol and saturated fat. I have a feeling you can’t do this, because you’re full of shit.

  • I started using a collagen called Besha a couple months ago, and I can see a difference! Pretty surprised because my expectations were low.

  • That got chicks spray tan is probably unhealthy to. Should look into what goes into that and what you end up breathing in from it. Glad she gave us the info

  • Yes, opinions vary greatly in this field. I did search for case studies, not that cooking with whey is a super big deal, but I’m sure you can appreciate, for the consumer, its about 50/50 as to whether “denatured” protein has any real benefits.

    Anyway, thanks for the reply.

  • I like his videos but he is wrong on cholesterole. It is *not killing * people. It is like saying that firemen are causing fire because they are always seen around fires. Yes, cholesterole is found in clogged arteries, but the cholesterole is there to heal already damaged arteries, not causing the problem in the first place. The body needs cholesterole for hormone production and dietary intake of it is not a problem.

  • This guy’s videos are seriously misleading. Cholesterol is what your brain is made of. The excess free calcium binded with the cholesterol is what does the damage. When there are microscopic tears this is the response to fix it. Once the excess calcium in soft tissue is removed simply by consuming vitamin K2 the system arteries become unclogged. The blood becomes sticky because of sugar. Not from healthy fats. Plants have their place, but many contain oxalates and other defense mechanisms that can be poisonous. If you want to look at poison look at seed oils. Corn, soy, canola, margarine, though made from plants they are horrid for your body. Stating that cholesterol from animal products is killing you is seriously misleading. Also the comment of if you” Don’t want to have a heart attack and die like everyone else” is fear mongering. Okinawans live a long life. They have many beneficial things in their diet. One other component to this longevity is the absence of sugar. Not mentioned here. Other cultures have longevity and eat meat. Hong Kong, Spain also have longevity and yet consume meat. Especially Hong Kong who consume almost twice as much fatty meat as anyone else in the world. Also if you want to know oz.for oz. the most nutrient dense food on the Earth?…grass fed beef liver. The mechanism for disease is complex. Stating that it comes from consuming animal products is just not the case. However, consuming excess refined carbs and sugar is definitely a case. Insulin spikes, inflammation, too much fiber,…etc. Cows and other herbivores have 5 stomachs that are needed to process the plants they eat. We do not. Don’t take anything as the Gospel Truth. Dr. Pritikan was an early advocate of low fat plant based diet.He became sick with two forms of leukemia. He actually died from suicide because of the pain. But his heart was ok.

  • The only reason I found this video is because I’m researching scleroderma which happens when someone has too much collagen ������ It makes people’s finger joints look “raw”

  • I am actually going to school to become a Dermatologist and I can say that when ingested it gives your body the natural building blocks to repair itself, it’s not introduced at a high frequency in such a small area, your immune system will destroy what’s injected, but if it’s taken in by mouth your body will absorb it and everything that depends on collagen will be better.

  • My gym teacher (use to be a personal trainer) said most people eat more protein than they need each day. Remember to much of a good thing is dangerous…..if you go crazy with protein

  • No wear good hats that block the sun 100%,go out between noon and two P.M. AND DONT LOOK UP INTO THE SUN or you’ll get wrinkles around your eyes and cataracts.NO SUNSCREENE OUT THERE BLOCKS ALL OF THE SUN’S RAYS.SUNSCREENS ONLY BLOCK A FRACTION OF WHAT THEY SAY THEY DO.PEOPLE HAVE TESTED THEM AND POSTED THEIR REVIEWS ONLINE. Also it’s better to sit in the 100% shade of a building than sitting under a sun umbrella or awning because sun umbrellas and awnings dont block all of the sun.Neither do car windows.They only block 20% uva.THAT’S where you MIGHT want to waer sunscreen only:you can wear a sunscreen with at least 80% uva protection (must have parsol 1789 3% photostable and or mexoryl SPF 15 or higher for this) with the windows closed and the airconditioning on.A car’s windows only block 20% uva (aging ray).The roof of a car can block the sun 100% between noon and 2 P.M. as long as your car doesn’t have a sunroof and you keep your head away from the windows towards the center of the car.

  • I always cook my whey protein before drinking, 30mins pre-workout and then max 40 mins after workout, the window of opportunity, bro’s approve!

  • It’s not a “u” it’s the lowercase Greek letter Mu for micro. If you have taken basic high school chemistry you should know that. Please don’t put anything in your body based on this guy’s recommendation. He is clearly uneducated.

  • Fiber may kill you, please read fiber menace, actually maybe fiber may clog some fuking tubes in the human body easier than fat, fat is a lubricant not a clogger…

  • Dietary cholesterol can only increase your cholesterol by a small amount. It is saturated fat that will stimulate your own production of cholesterol. If you are worried about your cholesterol levels, eat fish. You’ll get some vitamin A if it har enough fat, and you’ll get omega3 fatty acids, both of which vegan diets lack. Also liver has an amazing vitamin A content, and by eating it, you are consuming parts of an animal that might otherwise be thrown away (sadly). I challenge all vegans to find a single vegan food that is more nutritious than liver.

  • OMG,WHEN DO YOU START TO BE VEGAN,,HERE YOU ARE HUNSOM GUY,IT WAS
    JUST 2 YERS AGO NOW YOU LOOK MUCH OLDER,AND YOU BEARD IS MORE ORANGRE

  • I take about 92g of Protein, which is slightly above (7g more) what my EAS bag of Protein says that I should take if I’m not serious. The HIGHEST amount that they recommend is 0.8g per body weight, which for me would be 136g of Protein. I don’t think that I’m “over-consuming”.

  • Now that was a dapper hat. Not only are you ripped, a chief but you’re also a buff, cooking scientists. Brilliant. Man with many hats.

  • This is true I took a protein powder don’t want to mention the name after 5 days that powder finished I started feeling tomuch gas pain and bloating now I got constipation and diarrhea. Abdominal pain.Pls don’t take protien supplements.

  • I’b been taking it for 3 day 1 small scoop a day today I did not have to take a pain killer for my legs geeee and i’m 63 yrs ingested first better! if your young you will see less affect since you have mo natural collagens!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • What protein powder is best for oats and cooking, and does protein blend is better then whey for it?
    Love your videos, keep up the good work.

  • hey thank god we are having this convo now that we are all the brands have artificial sweetner which is carcinogenic. I would also request u to check labdoor report on optmium nutr. (the highly trusted brand) also has heavy metals.so it goes without saying that 99% brands must be like that

  • hi and thank you for your guidance! can you give me your take on hydrolyzed collagen powder? please
    I put half a scoop in my morning coffee but Ive recently cut out all meat and dairy to lower my ldl a bit more and also cause I feel a lot better. can I keep my collagen? thank you! ��

  • So before u were born, do u really think your mother said ” protein is the most dangerous thing in the world”? so she just eat vegan when u were in her belly?????? please tell us…. if she said that protein is dangerous???

  • Excuse me, for the hummus, it’s possible to use natural dry chicken pea beans? I would cook them to have them soft to blend them for my hummus

  • You are right. It doesn’t matter if protein denatures in cooking because it will denature naturally through the acids in your stomach. Denaturing is part of digestion. We are after the amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins anyway.

  • FUKIN IDIOT REPORTER…of course you can get protein from other foods like milk and eggs but those have lots of fat (which athletes mainly want to avoid)
    and 23gs in a 3glasses of milk is good and all but its not a muscle building protein…out of the 23g of protein in that milk only 0.01% of that protein is whey/ casein which are they fat burning, muscle recovery proteins…So NO drinking 3 glasses of milk is not the same as having a protein shake…sit down bitch!

  • This lady is talking about heavy metals stay in our body for a “long period of time”. I wonder how her stomach fat will stay there?

  • Well, if you want to die from protein you could just get bitten by some venomous snake. All venoms are protein one way or another.

  • What s wrong with the food industry in America…seriously. Since when does the fda approve Mercury lead and arsenic in your plate. The best part is that it retails in the health corner, good sense of humor… But shhhh it makes money…

  • my question is about the nutrient value before and after!
    what I know from school, cooking and chefs that heating burns and break down the fat particles, for example if you microwaved pepperoni and press with kitchen paper on them you will be able to see the fat is form of oil.
    (just my point of view, if you know about the topic correct me)
    thanks for a great video

  • I started to watch your videos because you are ridiculously hot, however I’m learning a ton as well. Great job, keep up the awesome and informative vids.

  • @theUSER101 I’m not sure you understand that a lot of supplements contain these vitamins and minerals from whole food sources. What is it that you mean when you say something doesn’t work? If you take 1,000mg of vitamin C, you will get a nutritional dose of vitamin C. Now the reasons as to why people take supplements are where the placebo effect comes in. A supplement is what it is, no more, no less. Btw, I work at the vitamin shoppe

  • ummm weird question over here.
    we know that cocking alter the protein’s shapes
    so if they have cocked the brains would the disease still be carried?
    just a question for no reason at all

  • I remember reading a book about the science of exercise (can’t remember what it was called, read it in highschool) and there was a brief chapter on protein. The author had worked with the USDA in a study to establish the RDA (recommend daily allowance) of protein, and they found that most people really don’t need that much protein. The only reason the USDA kept the RDA so high was to account for populations who need additional protein, such as: pregnant women, power lifters, people with broken bones, etc.

  • Kinda stupid article you wrote……educational yes, but worthy of talking about no. Because most of the food we eat and stuff we take….is bad for us.

  • An infection that causes my IQ to drop drastically, difficulty to speak, hard to walk properly and some urge to eat brains?
    I wonder… Where have I heard of this before? ಠಿ_ಠ

  • I tried consuming the recommended amount of protein for my body condition naturally (and I’m not even a body builder), and I gagged on the food LOL. Fresh is always best, of course. Once in a while I would add whey protein. Nowadays I consumed a lot of egg whites. That’s a lot of eggs without the fat and cholesterol.

  • Yeah, I agree with Chacha5678, change it to ANIMAL protein, is the most dangerous thing in the world. I came on here thinking that eating too much lentils or tofu was bad for my health, phew, thanks goodness.

  • True, but the fitness industry is overwhelmingly made up of people who have little to no clue what they’re talking about, so that doesn’t say much… Also, there isn’t really anything in this particular video that is my “opinion”.

  • Thanks for the info! Recently I’ve found that mixing whey with hot water rather than cold makes it a much more enjoyable drink. But today I put damn near boiling water in the glass by accident, and rather than mixing as it normally does, it also foamed up at the top, and I worried that maybe I’d broken down the protein beyond usability. Good to see I was wrong! Unless boiling temps fuck with amino acids

  • I never understood the question. If they’re willing to cook meat on the stove/grill at 500 degrees, why would cooking at 350 be a problem

  • great video!
    I have a question.
    I exercise a lot, running and cycling.
    As a vegan, I’ve been using pea protein and other vegan protein powders. I it also bad if I consume too much plant protein?
    Thanks!
    Love the videos! Keep up the great work!

  • Meat can definitely be overdone. For example eating an entire steak for diner. That is unhealthy. I don’t think anyone debates that. Eating the right amount and kind of meat is however a healthy addition to a healthy diet.

    The people who die of heart disease are the people eating burgers, steaks, pizza, etc every day.

  • I can allready see a zombie movie in the makes just with that disease
    THE LAUGHING DEAD.
    The movie that will shake your brains out and make you lose your sleep.

  • It’s not a “u” it’s the lowercase Greek letter Mu for micro. If you have taken basic high school chemistry you should know that. Please don’t put anything in your body based on this guy’s recommendation. He is clearly uneducated.

  • Hi there, have you heard about Smashing Ripped X? (look it up on Google) You will learn about the crimes we commit against ourselves. With Smashing Ripped X, you will discover how to get ripped quickly.

  • How do the levels compare to other common foods? Where is the data and why wasn’t this peer reviewed? Metals are naturally occurring and its the actual level of each above scientifically determined thresholds that matters. Lack of transparency is a red flag.

  • this is rediculous!!! ‘not one of the sales people warned us of the potential hazards”………… well when i walk into the super market and pick up some pasta or bread of candy if not ones ever seen a sales person come over and warn me about how these will cause me to gain fat and possibly diabetes and heart condition. cop the fuck on media! all they want is our money

  • Prions are, in fact, so difficult to eradicate that any instruments used on a patient found to have a prion disease must be destroyed, because they can never be entirely sterilised and it only takes one prion to cause an infection.

  • i hate how the media blows EVERY GOD DAMN THING out of proportion. if you consume anything in high amounts there will be complications. fuck man, seriously. dont tell me what i should and shouldnt consume. protein drinks are fine to have..as long as you dont have a lot its fucking common sense. what a dumb study. im still going to drink my syntha 6.

  • would love a protein powder with pea protein, taurine, bromelain, creatine, B12 and caffeine (for a little kick) and real dried fruits for flavor.

  • You know, from having read some papers arguing pro-keto and pro-plant based diet, I came to a conclusion. Or a list of importance if you may, for me. First and most important, try to eliminate all processed sugars and avoid any such food that combines sugar and fat. Funny thing is when I did it for a month my Trigecilorin almost doubled as if my body wanted candies or I do not know… Second, AVOID ANY FOOD THAT MAKES ME FEEL TIRED. Which is GLUTEN for me? If I eat any food with a high dose of gluten [czech dumpling, for instance], I could fall asleep behind the wheel. It causes inflammation which might or might not [i am inclined to believe it does partly] to CAD. Note here for people in a similar situation like me, Gluten foods combined with sugar [coockies] do not have the same effect on me, I guess its due to the energy from sugar, but still causes a negative reaction in the body. ALSO, SOY SOUCE [the black stuff] causes the same thing, even one drop… Third, eat more veggies and fiber and omega 3 with vitamin D. FIBER, I would argue that 80% of the people I know do not have sufficient or at least minimal intake of fiber, I did not as well.

    For me, it is to do these things to achieve a better diet for my heart health. Sure I could go and try to do the full plant-based diet. But I know myself, I would not be able to endure it. I am not like my sister, who is vegan for ethical reasons. But I would highly reduce my meat intake to a minimum or near zero. I like lentils and beans… But that will not happen to eggs…

  • if you eat lean meat with vegetables and excersize, you will be good. if you weightlift, you need protein. maybe not 300 grams a day, but you need it.

  • Ah yes, of course, the molecule that you take into your body for the purpose of making new cells which helps you grow and cover injuries so you don’t bleed out is the most dangerous thing in the world. Big brain time. And before you say plant protein and animal protein are different, they’re not. They are both the exact same molecule. Protein is protein, animal or plant.

  • @GaiasBatweasel Really, protein in raw veggies? Not a real good protein source last time I checked! Maybe do your research before you comment….

  • Um hello! That Italian family needs to stop breeding all together! Why would you want to knowingly pass your child/children a FATAL disease!!?

  • Fantastic! Our tribe’s chieftess wrote about these prions in one of her books she released a few years ago. In our oral tradition, we have the same story passed down to us about certain ones from times past who practiced cannibalism and they developed kuru as a result as well.

  • There’s no such thing as animal protein in fact there are 100s of difrent protein so saying as if it’s only one substance is very cherrypicky

  • Well, if you want to die from protein you could just get bitten by some venomous snake. All venoms are protein one way or another.

  • 6:41 Mic the Vegan you forgot to mention that mother’s milk contains from 31 to 51% saturated fat so if you’re going to use mother’s milk to justify the percentage of protein we should eat in our diets then a high fat content should also be the norm or did Mother Nature get one right and another wrong?:)

  • Collagen is protein, composed of amino acids, with a couple missing,
    so how come your body can’t do what it does with collagen, when you ingest other forms of protein.

  • I just watched a video right before this that said topical does very little compared to ingesting it. Not sure that doctor knows what she’s talking about.

  • That’s a dumb question. Of course they can. Some proteins make your cells divide even when they shouldn’t leading to tumors. Other proteins transcribe rna into proteins even if this rna came from a virus. Parasites use proteins to replicate. Every process in every living organism involves proteins, and surprise, some biological processes kill people.

  • I actually heat up my protein in boiling water. I find this helpful in increasing digestibility, solubility, and reducing your body’s immune response to whey products.

  • There’s nothing wrong with meat consumption unless your a dramatic vegan, but everything is good in moderation make sure with every meat meal you have veggies and a wheat bread and fruit so that you don’t get gout and avoid eating fat from meat to avoid high cholesterol. Protein for black people makes us live longer and gives us strong bones

  • @theUSER101 The sales people didn’t warn them, because there was nothing to warn them about. They may not have formal nutritional education, but it doesn’t take much to know general information about supplements. Placebos? no, just no. I’m not sure if you know what DSHEA is, but the supplement industry is MUCH more regulated than you think. It’s illegal for them to tell you that protein will make you put on muscle. I think I know what I’m talking about, I work at a similar store

  • 210 is good cholesterol number. Depends on your ratio. 130… Hello Alzheimer’s… You starve your brain. And how much meat people eat has nothing to do with heart disease. How much sugar are they eating? What is their blood pressure? What is their family history? Do the exercises? Be honest Big Pharma reps…

  • hey thank god we are having this convo now that we are all the brands have artificial sweetner which is carcinogenic. I would also request u to check labdoor report on optmium nutr. (the highly trusted brand) also has heavy metals.so it goes without saying that 99% brands must be like that

  • so they ask an unhealthy fat women about protein supplements,,, Althought I have to say the metals they found are all toxic in any kind of dose

  • It seems like you know everything that scientists and doctors don’t know, you should win noble prize! Who needs Einstein when we have you!

  • I agree on this, lots of ppl are being misled by the ads and sales people so they over use the product. If you want to be on the safe side then just have a pre workout and post workout shake, that is all you need. For the rest of the day fill it with non processed foods and you are golden.

  • protein isnt really that essential unless your a bodybuilder on steroids, not eating a ton of protein isnt gonna really affect how you look, unless you introduce steroids

  • I’ve been on a Keto diet for a couple of months. I had bleeding gums which is a lack of vit C but I didn’t take in any veggies or fruit but the bleeding went away anyways which made me curious.
    According to proponents of the carnivore diet say that for some reason they don’t suffer from deficiencies and I’ve even learned that ship captains always knew regarding scurvy that you didn’t need vit C if you have access to plenty of fresh meat.
    I definitely noticed that my joints and skin cleared up almost immediately just eating meat and I had severe eczema as well.
    I’m getting into collagen and bone broth so I’m hoping for even better results

  • I know the last part is a joke, but sadly it’s true. Any food that you eat that is part of the central nervous system can have prions. I want to eat brain though, the taste is so unique.

  • Kinda stupid article you wrote……educational yes, but worthy of talking about no. Because most of the food we eat and stuff we take….is bad for us.

  • I’d give that mom some natural Protein that was produced in my body and is lead arsenic free… and It’s FREE!!!! get mine and get mine friend for free

  • “Unintentional injuries”, in this category lies the deaths linked to osteoporosis (one of the leading causes of mortal fractures in postmenopausal women) and sarcopenia in old age. Eating enough protein and dairy is one of the most effective prevention for those with exercising. And the risks associated with animal consumption are unclear, only process and red meat overeating seem to be putting people at risk. Don’t be so ideological please, you can be vegan and still not lie.

  • It’s true that people don’t need as much protein as people think, but high protein diets are not dangerous at all (if it’s plant based). Little health risks have been found with even protein intakes up to 4g/ kg. Cholesterol is not to blame for arteriosclerosis itself, it’s what the body does to try to repair the inflammation caused by animal foods and other inflammatory foods. I think you missed these points.

  • The Rockafella’s started all this high protein crap in 1913 its all part of culling the population, what humans require is high carbs, we are carbon beings

  • I’m from Papua New Guinea and as far as i know my people don’t eat human brain to commemorate the dead. And neither are we cannibals. That’s the kind of misconception that has ruined the name of our country. I am not refuting what is said in this video because if it is medically backed up then its fine. But, as far as i know we’ve never had to eat anyone’s brain. We maybe a developing country but we certainly are not brain eaters.

  • Big bulky nuts with dumb brains should drink as much protein as they can so we can weed them out of the population. Let their kidneys get destroyed.

  • You forgot to mention that there is protein aka amino acids, in every fruit and vegetable and that we don’t need to eat what are traditionally considered to be high protein foods your cottage cheese to get them. Only mentioning animal products as sources of protein is very old fashioned and actually rather poor science!

  • “Don’t eat other people’s brains” Uhh, did you forget about Mad Cow Disease/BSE? It’s the reason your beef is still banned in the USA. I’d say “don’t eat any brains or any cannibalistic animal.”

  • This is trash. I’m not even eating animal protein but I have more knowledge about this and I know that the Cholesterol-myth is outdated

  • No, it is not only the package. It’s the animal protein itself that increases the levels of IGF-1 and thus the tumor growth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcIkhffzrkk
