What if you drank in moderation for a really long time? Would that still be bad for your health?

What if you drank in moderation for a really long time? Would that still be bad for your health?

Define moderation: In my years of taking alcohol and drug histories, the definition of moderate drinking seems to vary quite a bit. While there is some evidence for the benefits or a standard glass of wine per day, risks increase progressively when there is regular use of much more than that. Many people have a binge of up to 4-5 on a rare basis - 4-5 binges a month and it crosses into abuse. ...Read more

Is it bad for me to take whey protein and creatine while on accutane?

Is it bad for me to take whey protein and creatine while on accutane?

I don't advise it.: Accutane already has the potential to cause liver and kidney damage and should not be taken lightly or without close monitoring. High protein and creatine powders add an extra layer of stress to your system & could cause dehydratiion. In the long run, it takes time and hard work to build muscle, and you only need modest protein in your diet to supply that. ...Read more

Is too much protein bad for your health? I drink protein shakes and i don't know whether too much is bad for my health.

Is too much protein bad for your health? I drink protein shakes and i don't know whether too much is bad for my health.

Debatable: Too much protein can have adverse effects but it varies per person. There is controversy whether kidney damage may occur with excessive protein. One question to ask is whether large amounts of protein are necessary- the answer is typically "no." most active athletes need in the range of 0.6-1 gram/pound. So, if you weigh 200 pounds, then 120-200 grams is plenty. More than that serves no purpose. ...Read more
