I've argued with a few on this site about the idiocy of overconsuming protein...and their only response was "it wont hurt". Damn I wish I could remember who the dumbasses were just so they could finally open their eyes.

Overconsuming ANYTHING is not good for you. These are made as a supplimental protein source, that's it.

Most of your protein should come from real food. Don't think there's not all kinds of shit in there too. Heavy metals plus hormones, antibiotics, etc. And fruits and veggies have herbicides, pesticides, weed killers, etc.

Check out Food Inc and The Future of Food if you haven't seen them. Pretty alarming stuff about our food industry.

Why don't they include how much of the same trace heavy metals are in chicken breasts, scrambled eggs, etc in that article?

I drink EAS Myoplex a few times a week.

I didn't read this article, but I saw one yesterday that criticized the levels of heavy metals in shakes, but that was based on 3+ shakes per day.

FYI, cilantro is a great natural chelating agent... cilantro pesto is a delicious way to reduce heavy metals in your system
