Speaking of protein though, just read this tonight on Swedish news. They (at the Karolinska instiute) found a new protein called PGC-1alpha4 which regulates muscle mass and strength.

In the study, mice who received the protein in specific muscles increased their muscle fibers by 60 per cent. damned.gif That's pretty significant.


Link in Swedish only I'm afraid.

I am pretty sure the current mice are strong enough and don't believe making stronger mice is beneficial.

HA! The guy is full of shït!

Hops was added to beer because of its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. It kept beer from spoiling. Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring while estrogen mimicking chemicals are a pretty recent phenomenon... About as recent as man-boobs? fatman.gif

If it affects men it probably affects women.

Just how much beer do women in Australia drink?

There is another part to the manboob problem:

Who knows, i personally don't trust most studies, although i always avoid fluoride, it's really not worth the risks.

The best numbers I can find are:


Aussie women used to be a 10B and 5' 2.5". Weighed 132 lbs.
(87,68,93)
Modern Aussie women are a 16D and 5' 4" Weighs 71.1 kg (157 lbs).
(102,83, 108)

There used to be a 10" waist to hip difference.
Current hip to waist difference is closer to 6 inches.

The average waist in 1952 was 68.5 cm (27 inches).
Now the average waist is 85.8 cm (34 inches).

The 1950's shape used to be an hourglass.

The most common modern figure is described as a rectangle or zucchini.

Don't know. Men and women are bigger and fatter. Doesn't look healthy.

A chemical compound in hops, the plant brewers use to give beer its bitter taste, provides an effective guard against a virus that can cause severe forms of pneumonia and bronchitis in youngsters, Sapporo Breweries said Wednesday.

In research with scientists at Sapporo Medical University, the compound — humulone — was found to be effective in curbing the respiratory syncytial (RS) virus, said the company, which funded the study...
