(Natural News) If you listen to your medical doctor, who knows very little about nutrition, you may think those man boobs are genetic, or caused by obesity, drugs (legal and illegal), or most likely soy, but you would be way off. What’s really affecting those hormones and influencing them so badly that thousands of men now have large, sagging breasts full of excess mammary tissue? Did you know breast reduction for men is one of the most popular forms of surgery in the USA? In fact, breast reduction operations for men are increasing by as much as 80 percent, according to Plastic Surgeons from Great Britain.
Sure, you’ve heard the myth, over and over, that soy’s estrogen-promoting effects are a major cause of man boobs, but did you ever bother to check the facts, the science on that? Surprise, surprise: It’s not the soy, but all that manly beer that’s growing those man boobs at an alarming rate. Wake up and smell the alpha-estrogen.
So, what are the REAL estrogenic effects of soy, and why is that the popular narrative – that soy causes man boobs? Well, that one is easy. The meat industry doesn’t want a hundred million American men all of the sudden dropping meat and choosing healthy, organic soy. It’s all a money-making scheme to deter anyone from learning the truth about their health and well-being.
The soy myth dismantled and unraveled
Do you chow down 500 pounds of soy burgers daily? Do you consume 500 pounds of tofu daily? Wait, are you one of those people who drinks 500 cartons of soy milk every day? Well then, it’s not the soy causing those “sheep” boobs. Yes, Google lies. You’re reading myths and fairy tales.
Looking to balance male hormone levels, by choosing the right foods and eliminating the bad ones? The science tells you to choose a plant-based diet and avoid beer. The most potent phytoestrogen in the WORLD, it turns out, is in beer. According to German scientists, that’s why female hop pickers begin menstruating when they begin touching hops.
Turns out, the phytoestrogens in beer attach to the alpha-estrogen receptors (as opposed to beta receptors), and that increases risk of breast cancer. That’s the reason hop extracts are used in breast enhancement supplements. Wow. Here comes the big whammy, so to speak. Soy phytoestrogens attach to beta receptors, serving a breast cancer reducing effect. Bottom line: If you’re worrying about testosterone and ever-growing “man boobs,” you best drop the brew, and then your man-cave friends might stop telling you that you need to buy a bra.
Turn to a plant-based diet and don’t look back, even when the meat, dairy, and BEER industries scream for your money
Remember, doctors in America used to say that smoking was good for digestion and made you manly. Then all the Marlboro Men starting all dying from lung cancer. Choose organic soy as a meat replacement and drop the booze. Don’t let the “busty myth” about soy ruin your smart health choices, for cancer prevention and longevity.
Men’s hormones are way out of whack in America, where most men are stuck in their rut with the Standard American Diet of meat, milk, cheese, bread and beer. There are artificial hormones in all conventional meat and dairy from the CAFO animals being injected for growth and production profits. You are what you eat and drink. There are also chemicals in plastics (think BPA) and toxins in pesticides (think Atrazine) that disturb male hormones and cause severe imbalances. All these “Low-T” meds you see advertised on TV are cancer nightmares waiting to worsen.
The cost of eating organic is much cheaper than conventional, because there’s no breast cancer surgery and chemotherapy on your horizon. You asked for the truth and you got it. Scientific truth. Nutritional truth. Remember, knowledge is power. And now we know exactly which foods and beverages adversely affect male hormone levels the most – conventional meat and beer.
