An increasing number of studies are showing that higher levels of testosterone does in fact increase both lifespan healthspan for men suffering from hypogonadism. According to American data, over 30% of men in the United States are affected by hypogonadism (which are testosterone levels below 300ng/dL). Sadly, this percentage is only going to increase if the trend over the last 20 years is any indication.
What do you do when the cashier hands you a paper receipt?
For many of us, we just stuff it into in our wallet or pants pocket without a second thought.

How often do you find yourself taking your cell phone out of your front pocket or belt clip?

A study conducted by the Goethe University of Frankfurt and German Federal Institute of Hydrology found over 24,000 chemicals in bottled water (now it is worth mentioning that in the United States, tap water is better regulated than bottled water).
In this study, even more disturbing were many of the chemicals found in bottled water have also been shown to be endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC) such as di(2-ethylhexyl) fumarate, or DEHF.
Unlike bisphenoal-A (BPA) an estrogen-mimicking chemical used in the production of many plastic products (which is already banned in many countries), the chemical DEHF found in bottled water is completely unregulated.
Researchers in this study found 13 of the 18 bottled water products tested exhibited “significant” anti-estrogenic activity, while 16 of the 18 samples were found to inhibit the body’s androgen receptors by up to 90%.
This is very bad news for men.
When it comes to your drinking water, chances are you never really considered that estrogen was there to begin with.
But the facts are in; the presence of estrogen and estrogen related compounds in your drinking water is more than likely, especially if you prefer to have yours bottled.
With the effect of estrogen ravaging men’s sexuality and psyche, it should be obvious that you would want to remove it-but the question now is; how do I?
