Bernhard Reveals Shocking Results of Protein Drink Testing
Biochemistry major Zachary Bernhard will reveal the shocking results of his research testing of cadmium concentrations in commercial protein drinks and nutritional protein powders at #URCA2017. As outlined in his abstract, "Heavy metals,such as cadmium, can bio accumulate over time while exerting their effects. Cadmium primarily targets the kidneys which can lead to renal failure." With Dr. Jeffrey Weidenhamer as his faculty sponsor, Zachary will present his findings at the 11:45 a.m. poster session in the Alumni Room of the Myers Convocation Center.
