I want to eat falafel but my friend says it raises your estrogen
is there any truth to this?
its probably the same type of argument that Alex Jones-types use when they talk about fluroride in water.
Sure its supported by fact and science but its blown out of proportion to make ti seem harmful. People have been eating falafals for years and they don't magically sprout tits, and you won't grow a vagina (or lose muscle mass, which is probably what you're worrying about if you're concerned with estrogen content in food) for eating one.
Don't worry about estrogen, common falafel side effects include -
Cold sensation on your palms
Hair loss on the top area of your head
Stuffy, swellilng nosel
Testicles might produce a weird metallic sound resembling a sack of coins
Cravings of pastrami
Hatred of ones self and their family
Extreme gas intolerance
You might get thrown out of almost every country in the world
Diamond and gold hoarding if available
Manic desire to loan people money at unreasonable interest
