Andreas,

	If you find those exact numbers, I would also be interested in
them.   Methionine shouldn't be acutely toxic, but a higher % Met
(of total amino acid intake) over time seems to damage the kidneys.   You
may want to check medline; I remember seeing some abstracts mentioning
restriction for chronic renal failure patients.
