    a fun hobby

    Loss

    Because phytoestrogens, found in hops, are thought to act like estrogen in the body, I could no longer drink beer. My husband and I had been operating Two-Seater Home Brewery for less than a year. We had hops growing in our back yard. I was a founder of a female beer education group (Girls Pint Out) in my home town. This loss changed my social and recreational activities.

    Confusion

    Side Effects

    Just from lack of energy and stress. I also heard this can be caused from anemia.
