Is it safe to take 1g/lb protein per day for building muscles ? And does it have any side effect on liver and kidney?

In brief: Muscle building

for a male with healthy liver and kidneys who wants to build muscle some nutritionists recommend eating about 40 grams of protein 4 times daily.
There is no evidence that such high protein diets do any harm to a healthy individual. For more personal advice consult a nutritionist
