    a high protein diet, usually, is anything over a 100g of protein, because the majority of society will rarely ever hit or go beyond that number on a daily basis.

    Studies were performed on mice. I doubt our nutritional needs are anything close to a mouse's.

    Coincidently my wife (biochemist) was talking about Alzheimer's to a friend of ours yesterday. Its caused by a buildup of proteins in the brain that have folded incorrectly, they then aggregate together and cause a plaquey buildup in the cells...so it would make sense that eating a lot of protein would compound this problem. However, eating the protein isnt going to trigger Alzheimer's, so if you arent pre-disposed to the disease or already afflicted by it, you dont have to worry about your protein intake.

    I think if you are feeling and looking healthy with your current diet, I wouldn't sweat it too much. If you're feeling good all the time from a health perspective, it can't be that bad for you. On the flip side, I think that people eating shit diets all the time contributes way more to health concerns than a high protein diet would. That's something that should be focused on first.

    I also read about another research that pretty much said you live longer on low calorie diet.

    Isn't it likely the people on low calorie diets are just healthier in general than people on high calorie diets who don't exercise?
