    [Health UK] Female hormones found in beer

    Scientists for Health UK suggested that, considering the results of a
    recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in
    beer, men should take a concerned look at their beer consumption.
    The theory is that beer contains female hormones (as hops contain
    phytoeostrogens) and drinking it may turn men into women.

    To test the theory, 100 men were given 6 pints of beer each to drink
    within a one hour period. It was then observed that 100% of the men
    gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became
    overly emotional, couldn't drive, failed to think rationally, argued over
    nothing, refused to apologize when obviously wrong, and had to sit
    down while urinating. No further testing was considered necessary.

    actually true - it also enables the alpha5 enzyme to convert testosterone to estrogen at a higher rate thereby moving you closer to womanhood.

    I poste this in another post on here somewhere about a month ago.

    Men's sperm counts have fallen by almost a third since 1989, one of the largest studies of its kind has found.
    The findings add to the evidence which suggests a growing number of men may have problems fathering children.

    Researchers in Aberdeen said their findings, based on 16,000 semen samples taken from 7,500 men, "cause concern".

    They said that the average "normal" sperm count had fallen

    That came from the BBC article, that must have something to do with the cold or reindeer or something

    Some more serious info, They say it could have something to do with the amount of estregen in water whether through the environment which is suspected to be in larger quantities or in the smaller but noticable amount from Women when they go to the loo.

    A scientist on BBC radio said that if you want better chances of normal fertility or not begin this impact follow these rules:

    Don't Smoke
    Don't Drink or drink less [alcohol]
    Drink more bottled mineral water and less tap water but then again the fluoride plans for tap water will make you do that anyway.

    No similar studies have been performed in Idia or China and if when performed didn't correlate with the Western world, it could only be a modern world problem for now but that might change.
    It's not the beer, it's the water that goes into it.
