Ralph, this is, regrettably, claimed again, and again. Always pesticides are blamed, yet nature, our foods, have many compounds with such an activity. Look at beer. It has, from hops, estrogens! Why are these compounds disregarded? Mind, you cannot expect much else from Birnbaum, it looks like nothing but a strong prejudice. Please, pass this on to members, ask them to cite an example where natural sources can be disregarded. Thank you.
