    A high protein diet does not adversely affect calcium levels, kidney function or cardiovascular risk factors according to obesity researcher Arnie Astrup. Quote

    Quote from Astrup

    “It has been suggested that high-protein diet may have unfavourable health implications,” Astrup notes.

    “However, we have previously reported that the [25 percent, high protein] diet in the present trial had no adverse effect on calcium… [kidney] function or risk factors of cardiovascular disease after 6 months intervention.

    “Furthermore, we found no unfavourable effects of a [25 percent, high protein] diet on the blood lipids related to cardiovascular disease after 12 months intervention; on the contrary, we found a decrease in the intra-abdominal tissue [which reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease].
