[Music] I’m like in today can eating soy affect your hormone levels will it give you man boobs how does it affect men versus women soon we will see what the experts and the research has to say about that and we’ll also take a look at some foods that you actually need to worry about in terms of your hormones there is a collective social fear of soy especially for men for a long time I was afraid of soy and avoided it in any considerable quantity based off no facts all of this hype comes from how soy has phytoestrogens which are estrogen like plant compounds they are known to be very weak estrogens and because of their similarity to estrogen they can sit in the estrogen receptors and block your actual mammalian estrogens from reaching the receptors to fit like when you go to your dining room table to sit down and your dog is there in your chair and refuses to budge stubborn Fido this is described as an anti estrogen ik effect sounds sort of dangerous well if you look at studies on phytoestrogen consumption you will see that it is linked to lower breast cancer lower prostate cancer at lower cancer death rates less kidney disease a 13% decrease in LDL or bad cholesterol and also lower levels of heart disease yeah but no one cares about disease is there more worried about losing gains and growing man boobs I wish I wasn’t serious so to the important question does soy actually manipulate blood levels of hormones let’s start with men here’s a sunny where men drink 400 milliliters or 1.7 cups of soy milk per day a considerable amount of soy milk their testosterone levels stayed the same good there but it did slightly lower there Esther owned a type of estrogen it was loaded by about 3% which is not very much but it did technically make them more manly let’s take this investigation to the next level what happens when you feed men concentrated phytoestrogen this meta-analysis looked at not just soy consumption but also ISO Flavin consumption which is the concentrated phytoestrogens which are found in soy they concluded that neither soy protein nor isoflavones that estrogen and soy affect reproductive hormone concentrations in men to recap study that looked at 36 groups of men found that it did not change blood levels of hormones alright now a bro might respond that’s cool Mike as if I pay attention to science but what about that Men’s Health article that said that one dude got man boobs from drinking three quarts or twelve cups of soy a day and then after you went off so his man boobs went away how about that let’s investigate that according to this study that examined the phytoestrogen content of various foods if you take 12 cups of soy milk and compare it to actual soy beans it’s less than 1/4 of a can of actual soy beans worth of phytoestrogens soy milk is of course mostly water and presumably they filter out a lot of the phyto estrogens with the solids when you combine that knowledge with how gynecomastia or man boobs are actually pretty common affecting over 30% of men to some degree at some point in their lives and how they send unnaturally go away after a few months as the body balances out it’s fair to say that anything could have healed those man boobs jumping jacks at 5 a.m. on one leg guaranteed cured my man boobs ok but how does soy consumption affect women I have to say it is worth noting in this study women with the highest soy protein intake throughout adolescence and early adulthood had nearly a 60% lower risk of premenopausal breast cancer than women with the lowest intakes that is huge especially considering breast cancer is the leading cancer back to hormones here is a study that looked at over 200 women who ate about 50 milligrams of soy phytoestrogens per day and they concluded after two years that there was quote no significant intervention effect on any of the serum hormones that means blood levels of estrogen did not change and here is a meta-analysis of 47 studies that looked at not just soy consumption but again that concentrated phytoestrogen from soy and found that phyto estrogens do not affect blood levels of estrogen in premenopausal women it is worth noting that they found a one-day increase in cycle length whether that was a balancing effect or not I don’t know but going back to that study that looked at over 200 women for two years in eating soy that one found no difference in cycle length so that’s worth considering now for the fun stuff that actually changes your hormones most people don’t know that dairy as this study shows actually raises blood levels of estrogen in both sexes and lowers blood levels of testosterone in men here’s a chart showing the statistically significant 25 percent spike in blood levels of ester own after drinking milk and a very powerful and equally statistically significant lowering of testosterone that is what men should be afraid of and yes these are just some of the dozens of naturally occurring mammalian hormones found in cow’s milk but people don’t seem to be afraid to drink cow’s milk for the hormonal effects soy on the other hand had some really scary stuff this might be why vegan men have higher levels of testosterone than omnivores and yes I have to say it higher levels of testosterone are associated with larger penises fact in the end the beneficial effects of eating soy far outweigh the entirely unsubstantiated risks of it don’t take it from some guy on YouTube here is what an expert has to say from this review quote the clinical evidence overwhelmingly indicates that there is essentially no basis for concern men can feel confident that making soy a part of their diet will not compromise their virility or reproductive health I wouldn’t binge eat soy every day and yes absolutely go for the organic soy but under no circumstances is soy an excuse to not go vegan even if you’re allergic to soy there are literally millions of plant foods that you may need alright that’s it for today feel free to subscribe and like if I get enough likes maybe I’ll drink 12 cups of soy milk No alright thank you for watching [Music]

100 thoughts on “Soy and Manboobs: A Busty Myth?

  1. something else did you bother the check out who actually made most of those studies that you are quoting and where they received their money from I did it's amazing what the soy industry will pay for

  2. Unfortunately very selective. I have seen many contradictive studies that he has failed to include making it seem like the matter is settled. In real life scientists are on the fence and it's so ingenuine to make one seem like and idiot for being skeptical since there is scientific proof THAT DOES EXIST and demonstrates the opposite.

  3. I'm 17 and these myths were scaring me since I'm still going through puberty! Thanks for debunking this stupid myth omg what a relief!

  4. I just got my meat eating husband to eat a veggie lasagna with tofu ricotta & he really liked it. Then I start hearing soy is bad for you! Thank you for clearing this up for me. More tofu ricotta coming his way!! 馃榿

  5. I understand some of what you say but when I was in middle school last year they gave the kids soybeans about 2 to 3 times a week but do to me not knowing the effect of soy i ate large amount of it soon after I was diagnosed with gynecomastia and it's only in about 7th and 8th grade when my breast stop growing do to possibly 2 things me not eating as much soy do to the fact I could trade for better food, or it's because I hit puberty now I would like to believe it to be puberty but they were testing men not boys and sense kids is not mature when they eat large amounts of soy it can have that possible effect.

  6. You should ask a Transexual men if he drinks Soy on pirpuse to grow his chest (is a serious question)…

  7. Are you serious? I have been avoiding soy stuff for 10 years cause I thought it was bad for the pecker. Gonna look into this some more, its very exciting, because i thought it was a done deal.

  8. You clearly have a bias about what you said about milk lowering testosterone and raising estrogen. Soy actually does lower testosterone and raise estrogen in extremely excessive amounts, like 54 cups of soy milk a day. Same thing with milk, you have to drink really excessive amounts.

  9. So basically it is just a myth… and simple observations are biais. Being obsessed with diet tends to be a feminine trait and probably why those males seems less "manly".

  10. Soy milk effected me in this way, I caught it early on but I still got noticeable side effects. I do 100 push ups every day and my chest has been rock hard for years. But a few months ago I started putting soy milk in my coffee every morning for a few weeks, not changing my workout routine, if anything I increased it around this time because my chest was softer and didn't look as defined as before. I stop drinking soy milk and it goes back to normal. It just effects certain men differently maybe.

  11. i typically drink 2 cups of organic soy milk a day with no fortifications one cup in my smoothie and one for desert and haven't had any issues yet

  12. I think with the soy boy epidemic, it's not exactly the cause of demasculine men, but a run away symptom and culture of it. Also, why do vegans have slightly greener skin than a omnivore?

  13. I've had manboobs for years from being obese eating a SAD diet. I've been vegan for six weeks and lost 20 pounds. I have about 70-80 pounds to go, and I will gladly drink soy milk and down tofu if it'll help me lose this embarrassing problem.

  14. I had a double gynecomastia procedure about three years ago age 37, at great cost, but by a well known American Dr at a top private hospital. I had this problem since I was 18. I was fully vegan for two years age 25-7 and then stopped, and used it on and off to lose gained Vegetarian weight. I never liked soya milk – but I am sure it is much better and more varied these days. I never bothered with soya or fake meat products. My surgeon told me it was a hormone imbalance probably from an increase in oestrogen. He thought it was from alcohol – which is often the case. I started drinking when I was 16 and this seemed to tally esp as I had nothing appear during puberty, but only after drinking regularly. I am writing this because the soya milk man boob thing is nonsense and I have never heard it before in all my research before the op. It is nonsense, and the thousands of non-vegan men who have this problem are living proof. It is also less prevalent in societies where alcohol is restricted or prohibited.

  15. +Mic the Vegan With great beard comes great responsibility and you perform my friend! Now I can reference an easy-to-digest(pun intended) resource for my omnivorous friends to watch after we debate about my soy consumption. Thank you! P.s. you totally skimmed over a huge seller for bringing more people to the green side…Man boobs, no. Man-hood, yes..Rejoice!

  16. Gynecomastia is not manboobs
    They are literally woman boobs
    Manboobs is just from being too fat and having it sit around that area

  17. Idk man I have noticed soy makes my chest seem more puffy and made me put on weight. I'm not saying its the leading cause of man boobs, but it had an affect on me. I ate boca burgers for a week and literally got man boobs.

  18. I drink both soy and cow milk and guess what, I don't have man boobs
    I'm so amazing omg, people should make me their king

    nay, their God. your God. I'm your God. worship me peasants

    I also have a big dick. so ladies, please get in the line

  19. My gawd…I always know when I click on one of your videos that you will quickly banish a long held myth…been vegetarian for about 3/4 of a year and want to move to vegan but it's proving difficult…do cheese and yogurt have this same estrogenic effect?

  20. My mum consumed soy milk during her menopause to help the symptoms. Mabye it has some effect but not the one that these studies analysed?

  21. Dc Gregor who is a vegan say is bad and yes he show studies abou it is bad because you vegans eat soy a lot ,you eat soy to replace meat and soy to replace milk and you eat that shit to often,soy is good if you eat it in moderation

  22. You should be ashamed of lying on YouTube. Lying about health. People, check real scientific studies about soy
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3074428/#!po=49.5261

  23. Question: if meat and dairy is bad for you why is our grandparents living longer than us? My grandma is 70 and a strong woman.

  24. Shouldn't we keep in mind that the meta-analysis was partially funded by the Soy Nutrition Institute?
    Just like we bash the cholesterol deniers with that the studies they reference are funded by egg industries?
    Thoughts Mic?

  25. Thank you so much for this. I have been scared of eating soy for almost a year now and my boyfriend accidentally got me soy yogurt instead, and I didn't want to waste it. I decided to do some investigating and this video made me feel so much better! I just got done with a delicious bowl of plain soy yogurt with frozen blueberries and some lime juice, and I can't wait to incorporate other vegan foods that I have been restricting myself from too long.

  26. these anti-soymilk groups are overly concerned with soymilk but neglects the proven harmful effects of commercial cow's milk which is more dangerous to humans…and those commercial milks arent even real milk anymore

  27. Listen to that high pitched voice and look at that weak neck. Studies be damned homie, you are the counterevidence

  28. Being vegan for almost 2 years
    Don't eat much soy products but a lot of veggies. my boobs seem to be bigger than bevor
    49 kilo and cup C

  29. Ok let鈥檚 explain this, yes you flash a lot of studies but lets explain how this studies work, first of all most of them were just correlation and observational, also the duration was short AF, so dont say 鈥淔ACT鈥 EVERY SINGLE LONG TERM SOY STUDY SHOWED MAJOR LEVELS OF INFLAMMATION AND CHANGES TO YOUR GUT and microflora, 鈥淔ACT鈥 now lets take a play from your playbook about the dairy product paying for their research well how bout lil ol monsanto paying for the 4 of those beautiful research in these video馃槺. Yeah anyways SOY in long term controlled studies showed significant levels of chronic inflammation including the latest 2017 meta analysis done on Soy protein 馃し馃従鈥嶁檪锔

  30. What I鈥檓 curious about is the body counterbalance. Normally if you inject or overstimulate testosteron your body most of the time also raises the estrogen to balance it out, making the roid users use an aromatase product to keep the estrogen lower to prevent gyno etc etc. But what if you stimulate estrogen in a male body.. Does it make your testosteron levels also go up? I鈥檓 very curious to say the least.

  31. Alot of the anti-soy hysteria is coming from places like the America Dairy Association (ADA), who obviously wants you to keep drinking lots of milk. When you trace back the negative studies, as I have done you will find this nasty little connection, most roads lead back to the ADA. Shame, shame… Mooo, Mooo. Furthermore, eating meat and exposing oneself to endocrine disruptors in the environment are the primary contributors to feminization. Interestingly enough, drinking beer with hops is one of the strongest sources of feminization. Hops contain 8-prenylnaringenin (8-PN), which binds to alpha receptors that are responsible for triggering cell growth in tissues affected. Conversely, soy binds to beta receptors that are responsible for retarding the cell growth response. In other words, soy has anti-growth effects whereas hops tell tissues to grow. This is one reason why heavy beer drinking men develop so-called man-boobs, gynecomastia. I say, very interesting, don't you think? https://www.drstephenstokes.com

  32. WTF is wrong with you, studies have already proven that it not only mimics estrogen but increases your body to produce it. Type in Soy creates estrogen on youtube 聽stupid. And estrogen from Soy increases聽 risk of breast cancer in women .

  33. Since ancient times, Soy is the basis of Asian and South East Asian cuisine. Soy sauce is used as ingredient in many culinary dishes, as well as delicacies, and even a refreshing drink. To me Soy is my best choice as plant based protein.

  34. I gotta disagree, soy itself is not bad, soy in north america is gmo processed filler bullshit, in japan its fermented or some shit, and most factory farmed cows are fed the soy instead of grass so that could easily be a factor why dairy products have so much estrogen

  35. Due to my health problem so I start drinking soy milk it true I start noticed my body is too soft, losing hairy chest and body too and my erection is very weak and no longer ejaculations. I start to feel freak. I knew something wrong…with soy milk. I don't have man boobs because I'm on diet and I'm losing weight which is so great because of soy milk. I losing about 25kg very quickly

  36. Consumption of dairy, meats, fish, poultry, lamb seems to make people irrational. My kitchen is basically out of commission and we've been eating out a lot but as a vegan, I've managed to keep meats and dairy out of my diet. You know what you see eating out? Loads of fat people and the fattest are often the women.

    All I can say is that people don't care what the truth is, so long as they were raised eating the Standard American Diet.

    But then there are those of us who break free of the mind control. Ah, freedom, what does it smell like? A lot less B.O. The Japanese during WWII thought they were superior due to their milder body odor. The body odor is caused by eating meats and dairy. No problem since going vegan with body odor.

    My husband does not want to research for himself and he's the one who got cancer. Hmm.

  37. I'm recently vegetarian, and slowly eating less animal products, so this was a pretty big fear of mine. This video really eased my anxiety about it, thank you!

  38. According to Google, a cup of soy milk has 131 calories, so that dude was DRINKING over 1500 calories… And I assume ALSO eating a normal amount of food! He probably gained a bunch of weight… Which can result in man boobs… eye roll

  39. Explain why women take soy when they reach menopause, why monks take soy to help with celibacy, why Thailand has the highest soy consumption and is known for its 鈥渓ady boys鈥

  40. Really moobs? How are taking this seriously. Its from high calorie diets and sedentary lifestyles, work. That's it.

  41. To those who criticize or are afraid of soy. Ninety-nine percent of farm animals consume soy to fatten them up.
    Ninety percent of all soy is sold to animal agriculture, not for making tofu or soymilk. If you eat animals, or
    dairy products or eggs, you are consuming soy-fed animals. Man-boobs are created from estrogen hormones
    from dairy products, hops used in making beer, and phtalates found in chicken; not from you eating soy directly. American women have large breasts from eating animal estrogens like dairy products; this is not natural or healthy. Asian women traditionally have small breasts and consume a lot of soy,, not dairy products. Sadly soy has been deliberately GMO'd and glyphosated–because they know it has protective beneficial elements. for our health. Thank you Mic for an
    excellent video.

  42. But how are higher levels of Testosterone always good? I mean there are healthy limits of everything? This comes accross as e little bro- scienc-y (the higher the T the better you are because oh… more manliness). Higher Testosterone is also associated with higher aggressiveness and violence (hence the bad rep of pushy vegans? Sorry, just kidding ;). Just think of this case of a baboon population in which the males with higher Testosterone died because of a disease (they ate some pathogenic meat or something) and afterward the whole society shiftet to a more sociable and affectionate one… I really should find this study again, because all this "T is SO yay and E so booo" stuff always seems so simplified to me. Apart from this little point (which really always keeps me wondering): interesting video, great information. Thank you!
