RE: Xenoestrogens #4: Hop polyphenols. Is beer consumption messing with our hormone balance?
Which is a hillarious expression in that matter as estrogens ARE steroids. Yeah I know... HILLARIOUS!
Highly educational and, along with your awesome random nerd comments, highly entertaining.
While I agree with you that one Pale Ale won't bother you (unless of course you're gluten intolerant) I make it a point to do my best to avoid all the xenoestrogens as much as possible.
I see it as a better safe than sorry proposition and when you add all the possible ways you can aquire xenoestrogens (soy, plastics, can linings, beer(I didn't know this one), etc) I worry about cumulative effects.
I really enjoy your work! Thank you for the education.
In Peace, Love, and Health
