    Looks like it may be a synergistic effect.. Some estrogen is essential, but getting a great ratio of testosterone to estrogen is key!!!

    Deceptive title and lack of controls make this study suspect. At least they mention the possibility of Soy being part of the problem though their main conclusion, that herbal supplements raise E, was clearly drawn to get attention.

    This is a terribly designed study. Instead of isolating the possible source for the increased estradiol--as any credible scientific investigation would do--the conclusion of this study is muddled in vague possibilities: well, it could have been the soy-based protein which was responsible for the increased estradiol or it may have been one of the several plant derived substances-we just do not know which one!

    Furthermore, there are too many plant-based substances in the supplements to know which if any is responsible for the increased estradiol. Clearly, the folks at J Int Soc Sports Nutr. should learn the scientific method and how to properly conduct a double-blind test which can focus on one specific substance.

    The title had me really eyeing my bottles of natural supplements.
    Then I read the rest and pffft.
    Not even a controlled enough study to actually show anything specific.

    And that little add in about the soy is really suspect.

    troof.
    garbage science...

    but why the awkward attack on natty supps?
    could it have anything to do with recent EU wide natty-supp suppressive regulations,
    soon to arrive in a formerly freedom loving now financial fascist failed state near you?
