...according to a scientific research,made by American Scientists.This research is published in the "Fertility and Sterility"
magazine.

In the research took part 500 healthy women from 36-45 y.o.

The result:
Women who had 500mg of caffeine per day,noticed increased estrogen levels by 70% more than women that had no more than 100mg of caffeine per day.

I hope this doesn't apply to men.. (I have more than 400mg of caffeine per day..) :eek:

First of all, the study itself sounds shady.... secondly, its more than likely a scientific journal in which you'd need a subscription too. The whole study isn't posted, so I can't give an honest opinion on it, except that there were probably SEVERAL confoundings present. :rolleyes:

I don't have entire the article because the magazine is published in America..

I read the results of this study in the biggest greek portal and I translated a part of them.

However I think that it's a reliable mag.. :o
