    I drink like 3 cans of this stuff a day. Is it bad for you in any way? I read that there are "high amounts" of estrogen in there. Will I be super ripped if I stop drinking this stuff?

    Thanks.

    I would be more worry about the sugar content if I were trying to cut.

    also, there are no links to plant estrogen having a negative effect on males.

    CONCLUSIONS: Our study shows that chronic exposure to a mixture of a dose of a phytoestrogen equivalent to that in the human diet and a low dose-albeit not environmental-of a common anti-androgenic food contaminant may seriously affect the male reproductive tract and fertility.

    It was a study on rats (which means that a similar study needs to be conducted in humans for it to really mean anything) that i found in like 10 seconds of looking. I try not to fuck with the stuff if i can help it but I'm not super paranoid I'm going to eat some plant estrogen.

    The serum levels of sex hormone-binding globulin significantly increased, and the serum levels of free testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) decreased significantly after 3-month supplementation

    :noes:

    This study actually bears some looking into. Someone with some time get the full text and dig through it. :noes:

    you make a reasonable scientific statement then follow it up with an anecdote :(

    The other study I posted was on humans and used soy to try to treat prostate cancer. I'm not sure of the dosage in real world terms. Like i said, I'm not too worried about it.

    lol, ya not the best way to state an argument.

    i haven't read that study, but i'm curious to see what it says. I doubt that the dosage for treatment will be similar to the negligible amount in dietary terms.

    when this topic came up earlier this year, i remember reading a study that the only significant problems from plant estrogens are when consumed by people with thyroid issues.

    17g of sugar in each can. 3-4 cans a day.

    Is it safe for me to keep doing this?

    thats actually not to bad in the sugar content, considering a can 12oz of Pepsi or coke has about 50grams of sugar. I mean yeah that is still unnecessary sugar, and is there really a need to drink that many cans per day?
