I have looked on several web sites that say to much protein can cause kidney issues and other problems. The studies say a person should only take in 0.4 grams of protein per pound. Is any of this true.

    If you're not doing heavy weight training 3-5 days a week, yes. If you're doing heavy lifting 3-5 days out of the week and drinking 1-2 gallons of water per day, then the safe limit is closer to 2g.
