This answers a lot of question about things I see when I go to a brewery.
As Charlton Heston said, "I'll give you my IPA, when you pry it from my cold, dead hands!", or something like that,...
Awesome. Now I can just blame beer for how I look instead of admitting I'm an out of shape old guy.
Man boobs it is then...
The empty calories from beer is already a contributing factor for man boobs, and now this too?
Can't say it's much of a surprise.
His name was Robert Paulson.........
Good thing man invented this thing called the gym!
Just man boobs? How about as a gut enhancer as well?
A little exercise will keep them at bay, I'm not deterred!
I am Jack's sincere appreciation of this post, and I wish I could like it a hundred times!
FYI, this myth has been debunked on here at least three times before that I know of. Simply put there is not enough of those chemicals from hops in the beer, relative to the amount of alcohol, to have the effects claimed. So the author of the article is blowing smoke out his....
However, pay attention to the fact that your beer also contains alcohol.
Alcohol contributes to weight gain in more than one way (all other things being equal) and one side effect of weight gain is moobs. (Notice that there are non-drinking males with moobs.)
Alcohol contributes to the ability to fall asleep (but not necessarily to the ability to stay asleep).
Alcohol consumption, in males often contributes to increased desire and decreased ability to perform in the bedroom.
Furthermore alcohol consumption has been linked to more than one form of cancer.
Bottom Line: Since there is more alcohol in the beer you consume than there are chemicals from the hops, worry more about the alcohol you consume than the hops in the beer.
Here's a link to the study that debunks this myth about hops:
If you're a female hop farm worker you might see some effects but beer drinkers won't.
What was my excuse for man boobs when I was in college when all I consumed was Keystone Light?
Right....! Must have been the nightly 2am Chinese food.
Hahahaha i just watched that movie the other day! Good comment. I personally think this problem isn't something a little excercise and lifting wouldn't prevent.
So what you're saying is I need to start looking for girls who work at hop farms....brilliant!
That study was funded by AB Inbev if I remember...
There was a study?
Don't worry, man boobs are in right now.
So man boobs it is.
But seriously, as @drtth said, there is no where near enough time for me (sadly) to consume enough hoppy beers to acquire said effect.
Yep, and I think that Victoria's Secret was in on it too...
Hmmm, I would have expected it to be the publishers of this sign/poster:
Well at least now I have a medical excuse
I say F off to this article.. honestly
Stouts gave me a dickie do. It's when your belly sticks out farther than your dickie do.
Didn't you mean this...
I've had man boobs far longer than I've been drinking beer as it is. I guess this just means everyone else will be catching up to me now.
ISO: Dank breast milk from female hop farm worker. Not for me, for these people: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/adult-craze-for-human-breast-milk-poses-risks/
For some reason, Spinal Tap's Sex Farm Woman popped into my head when I read this
Woo-hoo! So my boobs are just due to being out of shape and lazy. Yessssss...
I already knew this and have been parading them around proudly. Got em pierced with some hop cone jewelry dangling for the brew fest this weekend. It's a street cred thing. Been fun growing em out so far.
well, that explains it...
I'd have some D cups by now with all the ipas I crush!
Embrace the dad bod lifestyle
I hate to say that I intermittent fast and lift weights so that my caloric intake can be filled with good beer and good food.
Well that would explain it then! Just another attempt from them sly BMC Bastards trying to stop the Craft Revolution!
I had man boobs long before I drank an IPA.
