Nashville loves beer. We make so many great beers right here. But new research should steer all men who care about their looks away from IPA's (India Pale Ale). This particular brew is on almost every bar's menu. But guess what?
It gives men "moobs"!
No guy wants that! The hops in IPA can lead to man boobs, or a condition known as gynaecomastia. The "hoppy" and sometimes bitter ale contains phytoestrogens, that can be good for some. They help some people sleep and they help women with menopause.
But here's the scary part. Not only do they contribute to man boobs, they're also linked with erectile dysfunction!
But here are things you can do to avoid man boobs if you must have your IPA. Avoid sugar and refined carbs. Also, eat leafy green veggies like kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and spinach.
Me, I'll stick to a lager.
