Oestrogen in beer shock!

  1. Scientists for Health UK suggested that, considering the results of a
    recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer,
    men should take a concerned look at their beer consumption. The theory
    is that beer contains female hormones (as hops contain phyto-oestrogens)
    and drinking it may turn men into women. To test the theory, 100 men
    were given 6 pints of beer each to drink within a one hour period. It
    was then observed that 100% of the men gained weight, talked excessively
    without making sense, became overly emotional, couldn't drive, failed to
    think rationally, argued over nothing, refused to apologize when
    obviously wrong, and had to sit down while urinating.
    No further testing was considered necessary.
