I agree with Dereck, although I am certainly not qualified to post anything but pure speculations on here, I'll give you mine based on what I think are facts:
The only bad thing I can see from eating protein is making sure you get all of the correct amino acids. There are some amino acids that the body cannot produce on it's own, they can only be gained by comsuming them. I believe they're readily available in most meats, but vegetarians can have problems getting all the essential (I think they're called essential) amino acids, but they are available, I think in soy, beans, and legumes.
This is all from the top of my head, but I'm pretty sure I've read it before, I'm sure somebody who knows what they're talking about will come along soon. Maybe this can start you on your research, though.
PS-you'll get a lot more replies if you use a real title as opposed to jumping on your keyboard.

We should all take ourselves seriously...and then crumple that image up and toss it out the window.
