Protein Myth #2

Eating large amounts of protein from foods such as meat can lower calcium levels in the body and weaken bones.

Not true. Recent research shows that meat-eating does not affect calcium balance. Isolated protein powders may contribute to the loss of bone density, but protein from food such as meat will not cause bone loss. Some studies even suggest that protein promotes stronger bones.
