As of today, the health of men everywhere in western society is in critical decline.
Obesity, prostate cancer, diabetes and heart disease are all on the rise, as well as, erectile dysfunction, and overall quality of life.
What is causing this decline in men’s health?
Estrogen, to say it plainly.
What you NEED to know about Estrogen
Estrogen is present in the male body, just as it is in women. Unlike women, a man’s level are far far less.
The ratio of testosterone to estrogen is referred to as the testosterone/estrogen balance.
Estrogen is measured in the body by assessing the levels of Estradiol in the blood. Estradiol is essentially the “active” level of estrogen in a man or woman’s body.
In men, optimal testosterone levels are typically above 600 pg/ml.
Optimal estradiol levels are far less, at 21-30 pg/ml.
What happens when testosterone falls, and estrogen rises?
Your health and quality of life go WAY down.
This is not supposition, but cold hard evidence from a vast body of medical research. Here is a list of the recognized effects and strong correlations associated with suboptimal testosterone/estrogen ratios.
-doubled risk of stroke when levels are above 34 pg/ml
-higher incidence of coronary artery disease
-increases C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation in the body
-increased risk of prostate enlargement
-increased risk of prostate cancer
-increased incidence of heart disease
-correlated with increased incidence of lower extremity peripheral artery disease
But wait, theres more! On top of all this, there are the clinical symptoms that indicate low testosterone
-gynecomastia (breast growth in men)
-Depression, fatigue, lethargy
-Increased abdominal fat gain
-Decreased immune system
-Lack of muscle tone
-lack of body hair
This is ALL from having elevated levels of estrogen.
Is Your Environment Anti Testosterone?
Society at large is still largely unaware of the effects of testosterone collapse that has occurred in men the past four decades. Average testosterone levels have declined with each successive decade since the 1970s, and much of this is attributable to the rise of obesity combined with environmental estrogens.
The estrogens I am referring to are not the kind made by the human body, but largely synthetic chemicals called “xenoestrogens”, meaning foreign estrogens.
Where do these come from? If you live in modern society, practically everywhere. There are over 70,000 registered chemicals in the United States that are recognized as having hormonal and potentially toxic effects.
Everything from tap water, to plastics, to pesticides, to cleaning spray, to various processed foods, all can contain levels of xenoestrogens.
What does this mean for modern men?
This rise in environmental estrogen has created estrogen dominance in far too many men.
The exposure and ingestion of these foreign estrogens, combined with being overweight and obese, combined with low levels of lean body mass, combined with physical inactivity, and then compounded by their own naturally low testosterone levels has led to a society of men with minimal masculinity in both their physical and mental being.
Not only that, women are profoundly affected as well. These xenoestrogens are stored in fatty tissues, and for pregnant women, appear in their breastmilk when feeding their newborns.
This all creates a perfect storm for more than three generations of men who have quite literally been poisoned with estrogen from birth, and then raised in an estrogen dominant environment.
Combined, all of this negatively impacts mens overall metabolic health, quality of life, and mortality, and this is without accounting for the negative hormonal/emotional effects that come from having out of balance estrogen and testosterone. Low testosterone and elevated estrogen go hand in hand with depression and anxiety.
What can be done?
There are four crucially important steps a man can immediately put into action:
1. You must lose body fat. If you are overweight, it’s likely your excess body fat is negatively affecting your testosterone levels.
3. Start lifting weights-testosterone levels and lean body mass go hand in hand. Begin an effective resistance training program.
4. Buy The Definitive Guide to Testosterone Replacement Therapy, the ultimate research guide educating hundreds of thousands of men on how to take control of their health and reclaim their quality of life.
Be the BEST YOU EVER!
