I have been reading some medical journals lately, and found that many of these crazy universities are redefining testosterone. They are maintaining it is healthy, since it is in females as well, but they are concluding that men have too much of it.  While Testosterone is key to the development of men, certain (female) specialist are talking about how it would be a good idea to lower the testosterone for young boys, and how to increase their estrogen, the female's counterpart hormone. Harvard goes on to talk about how good testosterone is, but how it causes men to behave badly, because they have more of it.

https://www.health.harvard.edu/drugs-and-medications/testosterone--what-it-does-and-doesnt-do

This has become common focus on many universities on how to bash men, from a biological angle.

With this current focus on men's biology, it might be good to focus on what is happening to the food market around us. Upon looking further into what is in your food, you might think that this idea is already in action, and for some time.

8 Foods That Lower Testosterone Levels
  1. Soy and Soy-Based Products. Some research shows that regularly eating soy products like edamame, tofu, soy milk and miso may cause a drop in testosterone levels. ...
  2. Mint. ...
  3. Licorice Root. ...
  4. Vegetable Oil. ...
  5. Flaxseed. ...
  6. Processed Foods. ...
  7. Alcohol. ...
  8. Nuts.

One thing that you will really notice is how Soy is found in nearly every fitness, energy and exercise food, as well as pushed as a healthy alternative for dairy and other proteins. On top of that, too much (no defined amount) soy can link to many cancers, but it keeps being put on the back burner of research, since it is a great profitable food for food corporations, and possibly other reasons as well.

Isoflavones, which are found in soy, are plant estrogens. High levels of estrogen have been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. However, food sources of soy don't contain high enough levels of isoflavones to increase the risk of breast cancer.

Strangely, there is evidence of other cancers from soy, but it is often ignored, and companies continue to push this estrogen making food on us all.

I started seeing soy becoming a major ingredient in my fitness food starting around the early 2000's. Protein bars, shakes and other such things, soy became the alternative that also became the only option available. Cliff bars, for instance, sneaks soy as a primary ingredient, while claiming to be a healthy energy or protein option. Even with the push to replace soy, in 2016, soy is still on the label. Cliff, like most of these companies, still predominately uses soy in their products.

Another dominating product that has risks with no real benefit, but is forced upon us is flax seed, but that is a topic for another day.

Interesting how many "healthy" foods recommended for diabetics has SOY in it. I never touch it! (OK OK EXCEPT when I eat sushi--but then I just mix it with the wasabi and spread it.) BUT that is it!

By the way the new Burgerking vegan burger is LOADED with soy!

I tried one of those vegan burgers yesterday at a fast food joint here and spat out the one bite I took.

Processed foods means nothing: it depends what the food contains.

Vegetable oil: which one? Rice oil is very good to increase testosterone, Olive oil is still good for men's health, while some other kinds are bad.

Sesame oil I have found to be the best--This little dish will give you a mega testosterone boost:

12 fresh shucked oysters,

16 oz of fresh cut spinach 

1/2 onion---1 clove of garlic 

2 table spoons of ground ginger

1 can mushroom soup mix + 8 oz of cream

Just a light touch of sage and parsley.

Dice up the oysters---everything except sage/parsley needs either put in a blender or finely chopped and mixed with soup/cream

Pour into a casserole pan THEN apply the sage parsley (French onions are good on top too) Bake 350 degrees for 90 minutes.

This dish will have your Johnson saluting the troops so fast you won't believe it.  

If it is too thinned out for your liking add some black beans.

I am Hypothyroid (yes, it does affect Men) so I am already aware of Soy and other products that are on the "use sparingly list". One slight problem for me is that I cannot stand Milk, especially when it gets cold. I used to drink a lot of tea but now I've stopped due to the mood swings offered to me from double bagging tea bags! Coffee is also on the "rarely intake" list. If I want a hot drink it will usually be drinking hot chocolate with soy milk. I eat spinach often but this isn't recommended. Cruciferous veggies are also a problem if eaten raw. I stopped alcohol 4.5 years ago because of said hypothyroid symptoms but the symptoms still remain. I remember reading on TIM recently about how someone liked 55 degrees in their home. Add another 20 and I start to thaw out. At the moment, whilst writing this I am wearing on top - base layer, hoody, down jacket 1, down jacket 2 and down gullet. On legs I have thermal "long johns and jeans. Temperature in this room is 15.3 degrees centigrade or 59  for those that need it in fahrenheit. For me 73 degrees fahrenheit brings a big smile to my face. This temperature is, for me, the safe level. There is no point in me putting the heating on because, for me, the trick is to maintain body temperature and not kid myself by point the heating on for an hour. I would have to leave it on all the time. I'm warm when I 'm active but as soon as I become inactive the layers have to be applied rapidly. When everyone around me is too hot, I'm comfortable and would choose too hot over too cold any day of the week.

When anyone says,

"You won't feel the benefit when you go out side, if you were that in doors." I won't to well, you know tell them to Foxtrot Oscar. 

Anyway, enough of that old crap.

Certain nuts are supposed to benefit my "condition" Brazils I think. I suppose the point is that I think everybody on the planet could probably benefit from knowing their ideal diet and geographical location to be able to me slightly more comfortable.

I the early days of discovering I was hypo-what-sits-name most research flagged Gluten as a no go zone. Once I started reading the packets more thoroughy I was surprised at how many things contained it. I would pick something up that I had eaten for most of my life and find wheat flour here, wheat flour ther, wheat flour everywhere.  Alcohol, gave that up 4.5 years ago. I thionk I am actually allergic to it as it would, on rare occasion, bring on an aphylactic shock.

Once my journey was underway, I realised that I was compromised by the Thyroid issue in every aspect of my medical history. Really sucks. After learning more about the thyroid and what it's function is, I got quite a shock. When the Japanese Nuclear Power "Fuck-A-Sheeman" went up I just though oh fuck as the radiation continues to spill into the food supply. For those of you that don't know, the Thyroid deals with radiation in the body, amongst other functions.

ps.

If Xanthine reads my comment then he'll most probably know that some patients don't respond to synthetic T4 alone. In this country we are only prescribed levothyroxine. Levothyronine isn't typically prescribed.

out.

While I am fortunate to not suffer that condition, I am very familiar with the thyroid conditions. People who suffer from thyroid conditions, as well as diabetics, need to be much more cautious when it comes to diet than the average person.

So many of these companies sneak cheap byproducts and dangerous ingredients, and get away with it due to most healthy bodies do not show the warning signs until much further down the road. Much like we are seeing with the fake sugars now. Diet drinks were females get out of jail free card, when they still wanted to look semi-attractive. They would get a salad, baked chicken, a diet soda, then eat ice cream and consider it even. Ha! Now they found that fake sugar promotes weight gain, and is addictive with sometimes dangerous withdrawals.

This is besides the points, however. It is important to understand what you are eating, if you have any care for your body and its longevity. It is great to see you are well educated and proactive with your situation, ID-Less

When buying various protein supplements even if it’s whey or animal protein some brands use soy lecithin. I don’t know how much difference it makes but I try to buy the brands using sunflower lecithin instead.

There is nothing to be gained by playing the game to qualify oneself for the privilege of giving away resources and sacrificing sovereignty.

My my my, I wonder how the gender neutral elements of society are going to view this research?  They profess to apathy regarding the notions of male and or female, hmmmm.  Wonder if a testosterone level will become tied to selective service and subsequent drafts?  What other machinations might this research be tied to ..... hmmmmmmm
