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.
