Mother Nature is getting the last laugh at mankind. Call it, Estrogen Overload. We're getting pummeled with excessive and often fatal doses of the female hormone, estrogen. Where's it coming from? Everywhere. Estrogen is in nature and industry. It's in most of the products we buy and the food we eat. And then there are some things may not be estrogen, per se, but cause our bodies to produce an excess amount of it.

What's all that estrogen doing to us? It's pretty much sterilizing the human race, along with making us fat, feeble, and frazzled. Specifically, the cumulative impact of excess estrogen is a rapid increase of the following health problems: cancer, heart disease, bone loss, developmental disorders (including disorders of sex development-DSDs, also called Intersex or Hermaphroditism / male and female organs), feminizing men, virilizing women, infertility, impotency/erectile dysfunction, weight gain, hair loss, acne, allergies, mood swings, mental illness, sleep deprivation, fatigue, and more. Women can experience irregular periods, painful cramping, as well as other vaginal, ovary, and breast problems.

"Industrial estrogen' is clearly bad for us. It's in the emissions from burning coal, oil, gas, and trash. It's in auto exhaust and asphalt. It's in chemicals, heavy metals, and pharmaceuticals (most notably, birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy/HRT). But, it's also in all those petroleum-based products that crowd the store shelves, including: plastics, synthetics, vinyl, coatings on pills, cosmetics, soaps, shampoos, detergent, infant products, toys, nonstick cookware, pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers... just to name a few.Most worrisome, the "industrial estrogen' in plastics can leach into food, drink, and medicinal products. And it's particularly bad if the plastic is microwaved.

"Natural estrogen' is in many plants and foods. Some say it's good for you, and others say, not so. Food sources include: dairy, eggs, animal flesh, nightshade plants, olives, and certain grains, fruit, vegetables, beans/legumes, herbs, and seeds. There seems to be insufficient research in this area, although many people are avoiding or minimizing their consumption of legumes (such as soy), dairy, and grains. There's also "estogen-like substances', those things that may not be estrogen, but have a harmful estrogenic effect on your body. They include caffeine (including decaf), sugar, alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana. These things are definitely harmful to your health.
