Interesting Phytoestrogen Resources
« on: December 19, 2012, 09:39:40 am »
Just about all foods, especially plants, have phytoestrogens.  These phytoestrogens can increase estrogen levels in humans.  Bottom line is, if you want to keep estrogen levels low, avoid soy like the plague.

Not listed but also high are hops and marijuana.

Holy crap soy! That's quite a lot of phytoestrogen in soy! I might have to back off that stuff. There's a ton of it here in Japan of course. We LOVE it.
I used to go and eat 600 grams (over a pound) of tofu for breakfast because it's so cheap and high in protein. Seems like I'd be better to switch to a dairy rather than soy though.

Dairy can be scary:

Just keeping you informed.  There's risks in everything, so I'm just letting you know.  fyi:  For protein I use undenatured rice, undenatured whey and egg whites primarily.  Occasionally I'll use some low fat milk and maybe once a week some meat.  So there are some other good protein sources out there - at least here in the States.  (I do have a caution with the rice though:  it probably has traces of arsenic due to the fact their source is from the U.S.)

I'm slowly working towards it. I just got rid of all the harsh chemical endocrine disrupting things in my bathroom. Working on the diet. There's only so much I can do though. When I go for a jog I come back and hack up brown phlegm and I'm 100% sure it's from all the smog in Tokyo. That's probably going to kill me before anything else.

isn't fish abundant and affordable in japan?  seems like a good protein option.  of course this will probably be followed up by a mercury post.  it's gotta be better than tofu.
