A growing body of research has investigated the potential health risks of excessive exercise on human health. There is now a clear need for an up-to-date, critical synthesis of reliable findings on this topic. Objective. To determine the potential adverse biological effects of excessive exercise and overtraining among - initially - healthy men and...

Background. While high-protein consumption—above the current recommended dietary allowance for adults (RDA: 0.8 g protein/kg body weight/day)—is increasing in popularity, there is a lack of data on its potential adverse effects. Objective. To determine the potential disease risks due to high protein/high meat intake obtained from diet and/or nutrit...

The fundamental role of copper and the recognition of its complexes as important bioactive compounds in vitro and in vivo aroused an ever-increasing interest in these agents as potential drugs for therapeutic intervention in various diseases. The vast array of information available for their bioinorganic properties and mode of action in several bio...

... Furthermore, numerous overuse injuries, such as muscle tears and stress fractures, result in exercise addiction yet are exclusively treated in a biomedical setting. While it would be incorrect to state that overtraining and exercise addiction are interchangeable terms, it is likely that a multi-disciplinary approach to their treatment would be valuable for affected individuals, and could contribute to a better characterization of both these disorders [42]. ...
... Most sulfur-rich sources of amino acids are found in animal proteins, which have positive dietary acid load; indeed, according to many studies, this type of protein can lead to metabolic acidosis and inflammation and this may accounted for MPs in this study [20]. An imbalance between acidic and alkaline precursors has been shown to disrupt a chronic net dietary acid load, which may have adverse consequences on bone health and pain [21]. Furthermore, Calder et al. found that excessive consumption of SAAs was associated with increased bone resorption [22], whilst dietary methionine may decrease blood pH and increases skeletal pain [23]. ...
... Ceruloplasmin is a Cu-containing glycoprotein produced in the liver and binds about 95% of the Cu in serum. This glycoprotein displays ferroxidase activity and catalyzes the conversion of ferrous to ferric Fe which is then transferred to transferrin (Iakovidis et al., 2011). Elevated IL-6 levels result in increased levels of ceruloplasmin, the major Cu-carrying protein in the blood (Di Bella et al., 2017). ...
