Seems like society makes a lot of rules for guys. Should not eating soy be one of them? Soy contains phytoestrogens…chemical cousins to one of the human female sex hormones. Should we be worried?

Here are the additional angles we came up with:

  • How much estrogen is in soy?
  • How much would you need to consume for it to be a problem?
  • Do guys have estrogen in their bodies anyway?
  • Are guys exposed to estrogen in other ways besides food?
  • What does having too much estrogen do to a guy’s body (Boobs? Lower sperm counts?)?
  • Is there any way to fix that?
 

Dr. Mike Israetel joins us to set the record straight.

A cofounder of Renaissance Periodization, Dr. Mike Israetel​ holds a PhD in Sport Physiology from East Tennessee State University. Formerly a professor of Exercise and Sport Science in the School of Public Health at Temple University in Philadelphia, Mike has taught several courses, including Nutrition for Public Health, Advanced Sports Nutrition and Exercise, and Nutrition and Behavior.
