Answer:

No, these are myths that have been disproven. While it's always important to stay hydrated and get the recommended amount of calcium from your diet, there is no evidence that healthy adults need to increase fluid or calcium intake when taking protein supplements, as explained in the Concerns and Cautions section of the Protein Supplements Review.

Just saw a video "T. Colin Campbell, PhD: Link Between Dairy Protein, Casein, & Cancer" He raises concerns about getting to much protein, especially from "casein" and dairy protein and says it may be more of a direct cause of cancer than anyone had thought. Also, he and others suggest that the calories we get from a normal diet of 2000 calories for most people really shouldn't be more than 8% which is lower than even other experts had thought. Someone has made the comment that "There has not been one recorded death from the lack of protein in a diet, other than those who die from starvation." I think protein is overrated and Americans get way to much of it rather than not to much.
