Is it true that eggs contain a lot of oestrogen in them and they can mess with your body's testostrone levels if you eat too many? Because I don't want to turn into a chick or anything just because I've had one too many omlettes :)

actually no.....there are no estrogens in eggs, but the fat and cholesterol in the yolks and arachidonic acid (i think) are building blocks for your natural hormones....so conceivably eating eggs can increase your test levels.

I just thought it was funny that you never knew the answer, but still decided to answer it (like you often do). Gotta keep those post up hey bro. ;)

Oh, sorry. I'm not worthy enough to answer a question just because I can't give a scientific reasoning for it.

I gave an answer that I thought was correct. Why you so worried about posts so much? Does it really matter? I enjoy posting on the forum, having nothing else better to do at work. Problem?

hahahah Easy !!!!

Im just saying that do you really have to reply to a post that your not sure of the answer. I mean ... I read alot of post that I feel I can't give anything positive to, so I dont bother. You just seem to reply to everything and anything. lol. But please continue. :)

If I put you on ignore I think the site would slow down considerably ... due to the amount of post it would have to hide from me. lol
