Yesterday, University scientists released 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 (hops contain phytoestrogens) and that by drinking enough
beer, men turn into women. To test the theory, 100 men were fed 8 pints of
beer each within a 1 hour period. It was then observed that 100% of the
test subjects:
1) Gained weight.
2) Talked excessively without making
sense.
3) Became overly emotional.
4) Couldn't drive.
5) Failed to think
rationally.
6) Argued over nothing.
7) Had to sit down while urinating.
8)Refused to apologize when obviously wrong.

No further testing was
considered necessary

Long term exposure to these hormones leads to 'man-boobs'! :D :)

You laugh, but some beers (mostly dark ones) tend to be high in hops that contain chemicals that are esterogenic. (eg: xanthohumol, etc, and especially from our part of the world). Whilst for the most part they are good for you, These can (sometimes) mimic the female sex hormone estrogen in humans.

No wonder we sometimes cry when we are drunk... :beerbang: ;)

Fun stuff.

No surgery done here. All Natural!
Big enough to hold a single beer, but not big enough to hold a whole case!
