    Hey, I like vodka-tonics! I win!

    I thought for sure you were going to start with a list like:

    1. Transdermals
    2. Injections
    3. Pellets
    4. Etc...

    Good article. I drink out of plastic bottles all day, every day. Don't know how else to carry water with me. Canteen?
    I've got the "staring at attractive women" down pat.
    Lastly, I know how important sleep is. It's what brought me to the doc years ago. At 50, insomnia just kicked in big time. Days with 1-3 hrs of sleep. After a month of this, I visited the dr. He did bw. T was in low 200s. Put me on trt. Looking back, I wonder if my sleep problem was my low t problem. I sleep 6hrs a night now. Guess I'll never know.

    The BPA is a huge issue.

    It's funny how people nowadays don't know how to get a drink of water unless it comes out of a plastic bottle.....................

    It's called convenience. I had no idea it was even a concern. Now I do.

    im not employed now, and my sleep schedule is really screwed up, but i sleep 9 hours and still feel unrefreshed and have low t lol.
    im going to try to work on my sleep though because i want a more normalized sleep schedule. Problem is everytime i try, i fail bc i get tired halfway through the day

    This is great: 'men become infertile, impotent, docile and weak.'

    I self administer, but if I ever decide to get it scripted I'll tell my doctor that I'm infertile, impotent, docile and weak but want to be fertile, aggressive, strong, get raging hard-ons and last for hours in bed.

    Think that will work??

    I'm kind of concerned about this and my son - he's 18. I used to hammer him about all the fat crap he was eating, but now I lay off. I'll start buzzing this stuff in his ear. If I am affected (I know I got it from my Dad), he's got a bad chance of getting it too. Anymore in company meetings I see overweight guys and they fight like women amongst each other. Now I know why.

    obesity does lower t, but eating fat has been shown to increase it..same with cholesterol. I know healthy fats like olive oil raise t, and ive heard saturated fats do also, but ive heard trans fat kill everything man.

    Isn't there also concern whether flouride and other things in tap water might be just harmful to test levels? I wonder what would be better, avoiding plastic water bottles and drinking from a glass from the faucet or vice versa?

    Realize that "tap water" is more regulated than bottled water any day of the week.

    So are you guys leery to drink out of even the "BPA free" plastic bottles, which is what the majority of bottles are now? Guess I will start swilling water all day at work from a gallon moonshine jug from now on.

    most bottled water has fluoride in it. you need a reverse osmosis filter.

    Rusty,

    look into Kleen Kanteen stainless steel bottles. Some people do glass bottles with neoprene sleeves, but they are heavy and also in danger of breaking. I did a lot of research on this a couple of years ago, and while glass is the most inert, I felt the stainless were the most practical option that wasn't glass. We have really reduced plastic, and I wonder if in a few years we will find something else in plastic that affects hormones that is different than BPA. There are safer options.

    Hey Angel. I'll look into one of those. My dilemma is that I take a gallon container to work. There's no way I'm drinking water from my school's drinking fountain. Almost as disgusting is the water that comes out of the staff lounge sink. Maybe purchase a couple of those ss bottles. Thanks.

    i cut soda out of diet(to a degree lol) and i buy kirkland apple juice now. It is 100 percent usa grown, gmo free, not from concentrate, and i believe the plastic bottles are bpa free. They are in pete plastic however which i am sure is bad too

    Yes, good read. But I've got a question for anyone with good data.

    How much would soy products raise your E2....really? I'd love to see some numbers on this.

    I drink about two cups soy milk every day. I'm lactose sensitive and allergic to wheat so my breakfast is a home made rice pudding I make with soy milk, rice, honey, cinnamon and salt to taste(My recipe for those interested).

    My E2 levels are in range but I'd be curious what they'd be if I switched to almond or rice milk instead.

    By the way, I never drink out of plastic bottles or heat my food in plastic.

    I'm curious about this as well. A few years ago when I was cutting way down on dairy I started drinking soy lattes, and I found if I had any more than one small drink, I could notice signs of increased estrogen, genitally speaking, and I just wasn't happy with that, so soy is very minimal in my diet now.

    I wonder if someone has tried to quantify it.

    Rice milk has a lot of arsenic, btw.

    Arsenic in rice. Well, I should be dead by now. I married into a Chinese family....thirty years ago.

    I have heard the biggest problem with BPA is heating up food in plastic. The BPA gets into the food.

    Damn it, now i have to shit can all my plastic tupperware.

    There is also mercury in tuna, but will it stop ppl eating that stuff? Remember, mercury bio- magnifies as it goes up the food chain.

    Time to clean out that storage area anyway. You know those areas are always a mess!

    soy is bad for you by any stretch of the imagination...male or female...switch to goat milk.
