    Men may be surprised to learn that their bodies produce estrogen. Researchers at the Mayo clinic have found that estrogen is essential in preventing osteoporosis in men and creates hormonal balance. But when that balance is tipped by too much estrogen, feminization can occur resulting in loss of muscle mass, increased fatty tissue, lower sperm counts and man-boobs. Having high estrogen can not only cause you to gain body fat in the chest and lower abdominal area but it can lead to numerous health issues and diseases. Unfortunately more and more males are suffering from increasingly high estrogen levels and this is leading to the continued feminization of the male species as we know it. Synthetic estrogens are fed to dairy cattle to encourage more milk production but all dairy products, including organic, contain high levels of naturally occurring estrogens simply because the milk comes from a lactating female.

    Natural estrogens are up to 100,000 times more potent than their environmental counterparts, such as the estrogen-like compounds in pesticides. “Among the routes of human exposure to estrogens, we are mostly concerned about cow’s milk, which contains considerable amounts of female sex hormones,” Ganmaa Davaasambuu, a physician and working scientist (Harvard School of Public Health) with a Ph.D. in Environmental Health, says. Dairy, she adds, accounts for 60 percent to 80 percent of estrogens consumed. Part of the problem seems to be milk from modern dairy farms, where cows are milked about 300 days a year. For much of that time, the cows are pregnant. The later in pregnancy a cow is, the more hormones appear in her milk. The link between cancer and dietary hormones – estrogen in particular – has been a source of great concern among scientists, said Ganmaa, but it has not been widely studied or discussed. The potential for risk is large.

    So that’s why I have them when I’m underweight, they got a lot smaller when I significantly decreased my dairy intake, going vegan in November for vegan month.

    Hey @Sagojyou,

    The phytoestrogens (plant compounds similar to the hormone estrogen) found in soy and other veggies have only minimal impact on the human body. Repeated studies have shown that soy has no detrimental effects on fertility for women or potency for men. :)

    I guess real men are vegan then ;P I did not know that milk was a big thing with estrogen because everyone says soy causes estrogen problems!

    Gross. Is this from an article? If so, where can I find the rest of it? That makes perfect sense though. Milk is clearly not a diet food. ;)
