Researchers have found high protein diets reduce our lifespan and increase our risk of heart disease.
A new study has found people who eat protein too fast may not be able to process it on a molecular level – leading to a build up of protein waste.
This waste could lead to an array of health issues including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson's Disease and diabetes.
Weight-loss plans like the Atkins, Dukan, Paleo and Keto diet have popularised high protein eating plans over the past two decades.
Studies say the body needs about 60 grams a day to fulfil the body’s requirements.
Now studies will determine whether protein form plants, dairy or meat make a different to our health.
