[Discussion] The paleo stance on alcohol? Alcohol is oestrogenic for both men and women. via /r/Paleo
In Women it is concluded that several lines of evidence point to an alcohol-induced rise in natural or synthetic oestrogen levels in women.
Beer - oestrogenic properties in hops as well as the yeast in ALL alcoholic drinks are highly oestrogenic. Oestrogen is the reproductive hormone for yeast as well. Less oestrogenic properties in wine. The highly oestrogenic beer cause the adrenals to make cortisol as well, making for the big belly look.
Oestrogen; Causes breast stimulation, increases body fat, salt and fluid retention, depression and headaches, interferes with thyroid hormone, increases blood clotting, impairs blood sugar control, loss of zinc and retention of copper, reduces oxygen levels in all cells, slightly restrains osteoclast (bone loss) function, reduces vascular tone, increases risk of endometrial cancer, increases risk of breast cancer.
