  1. Sounds like we are getting a lot of estrogen from our "recycled" water sources.  Since it isn't removed from the water at the cleaning plant – any restuarant or "tap" water we choose to ingest contains it.  Doesn't  "cancer"  feeds off this hormone too?

  2. Brutal! I'm just speechless. Although I'd like to see dietary studies conducted on human populations. Maybe xenoestrogenic activity isn't as bad after all.

    Do you remember the soy (phytoestrogens) scare?

  3. And these anti-vegan crusaders are so "worried" about phytoestrogens from soy? Hah, insane. I hope you also love & respect animals, Dr. Greger, not just about health. Can you answer that for me?

  4. I am not sure if you have already made a video (I couldn't find it after a search on your website) about soy estrogen? I understand they are not xeno but I have seen a lot of acne breakout after incorporating a soy smoothie twice a day (no diary). I never had breakouts not even during my teens n especially not on my cheeks (used to  get the odd one on my forehead or so) so is there a link with soy estrogens?

  5. I always thought it was a little strange when people say they avoid soy products because of the estrogen.  Now I can say I avoid all animal products because of the estrogen.

  6. I wonder where most of the estrogen is. Is it mostly in the blood? Because I know a lot of religious slaughter practices require that the animal be drained of blood before consumption. Would be interesting to know. 

  7. So with that said.. Should most males go on TRT? 
    I fortunately can afford to eat quality foods and take quality vitamins and go to gym etc… but it costs a lot of money.. and for most people that would impossible.. luckily my test levels are great because I can afford to take care of myself… but for most it is its a matter of money, time, learning and laziness… however if they took a trt shot every week… it would be much cheaper and easier.. What are your thoughts?

  8. I'm feminine enough and happy not to add any of those extras hormones that meat, dairy and poultry foods deliver.  WFPB (Whole Foods Plant Based) diet!

  9. so crazy. reason # 28746194831864834 to be vegan and i guess to grow ur own food huh? ugh CHANGE NEEDS TO COME NOW!

  10. If this doesn't get you headed toward veganism, I don't know what will. The profit makers sure don't give a fuck about us or the animals. Thanks Dr. Greger.

  11. I eat a ton of meant, drink tons of milk, and eat eggs all the time. My test is sitting naturally around 920 ng/dl. I think I will be ok.

  12. Wooow. Now we know why girls hit puberty so early now a days. And this estrogen must also effect teenage boys!

  13. So this is what soyboys become when older… bald, weak, he must have been consuming secretly animal products, he looks feminized :)))

  14. Hello, i am eating a lot of almonds. Is that bad for my estrogen level? Because i have heard that almonds have a lot of that estrogen? Thank you for answers!


    It is absolutely physiologically IMPOSSIBLE for men to produce estrogen! They do NOT have ovaries!

    Testosterone CANNOT convert to estrogen!!!

    Estrogen CAN NOT ever be consumed from food because the stomach and digestive tract acids kill it!!!
