Abstract (type = abstract)
A study of the risks associated with protein drinks including heavy metal contaminants, high protein diet effects, and the trends towards pro-hormones
Abstract (type = summary)
Commercial protein drinks are meant for boosting protein level in the body; however, undesired substances also enter the body through protein supplemental drinks and cause undesired effects. Heavy metal contaminant is one of the undesired substance, and can accumulate to a risky level with multiple servings of protein drinks per day. U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) set the daily limit for heavy contaminants of arsenic - 15µg; lead - 10µg; cadmium - 5µg; mercury - 15µg. Arsenic, lead, and cadmium are all found to be close to the daily limit. Pro-hormones are also found, with or without being listed on the ingredient label. Pro-hormones are found to disturb natural hormonal balance in the body and may be harmful in growth or sex development in adolescents and children, and other undesired side effects on adults. Besides, high protein level is not necessarily beneficial to the body and causes an extra burden to kidneys. Most U.S. adult can obtain sufficient protein in their diet from natural sources.
