Default Hops & Estrogen

My apologies, new to forum, I'm sure this post has been done already. But this worries me.

I love hops but I love my T cuz I'm a man. What to do? Sure I get health benefits from hops but is it worth a limp D?

Never heard of this, but I've been drinking hoppy beers for 5 years and don't have any trouble getting it up. What's your source for this correlation between hops and estrogen?

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I think it's the ethanol that's making your d- limp.

WOW...

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1852439/
"Hops, the resinous inflorescences of the twining vine Humulus lupulus L. (Cannabaceae), are used today primarily for their bitter and aromatic properties in the manufacture of beer. In addition, hop preparations are sold in health-food stores in the U.S. for the treatment of anxiety and insomnia, and are sold in pharmacies in Europe (Anon., 2002), and formerly in pharmacies in the U.S. (Anon., 1946), for these purposes. Hops have been shown to contain one of the most potent in vitro estrogenic substance known from the plant kingdom,"

However, this site say's:

http://jcem.endojournals.org/content/84/6/2249.abstract
"This phytoestrogen can also be detected in beer, but the levels are low and should not pose any cause for concern."

(-whew-)

I always find that simcoe throughout the boil and an aroma steep of Viagra to be a nice combo.
