If you’re concerned about consuming excess phytoestrogens, goitrogens (ie. compounds that disrupt your thyroid function), and mineral chelators that cause micronutrient deficiencies, then you may want to take legumes out of your diet.
Beans of all types contain large amounts of phytoestrogens proven to promote estrogenic activity in the body, they contain goitrogenic compounds that block iodine and selenium uptake in the thyroid, and they contain similar amounts of the notorious mineral chelator phytic acid as whole grains.
if you agree with me (Christopher Walker of Truth Nutra), that the body needs sufficient raw material from vitamins and minerals to operate properly without deficiencies, and that it should exist in a state of hormonal balance, then you’ll naturally follow my logic as to what is healthy for the body, and what is NOT.
Under this definition, Beans are considered a food to avoid.
Let’s take a look at the research:
https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1207/s15327914nc5402_5 (Shows that under soy legumes have the highest phytoestrogen content per 100 grams.)
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/0031942271850033 (shows there were four different estrogens present in a flowering bean plant.)
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3074428/ (States these phytoestrogens have similar molecular structure to that of endocrone disruptors like BPA.)
http://jmclachlan.tulane.edu/PDFs/boueetal2003.pdf (sho ws legume extracts have high levels of estrogenic activity.) They had significant competitive binding to estrogen receptor Beta (ER-B). Estrogenic activity was determined using an estrogen-dependent MCF-7 cancer cell proliferation assay. The extracts displayed increased cell proliferation above levels observed with estradiol. The pure estrogen antagonist, ICI 182,780, suppressed cell proliferation induced by the extracts, suggesting an ER-related signaling pathway was involved. All seven of the extracts exhibited preferential agonist activity toward ER-B.

https://scholars.unh.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1787&context=dissertation (Dissertation looking at different plants and the effects that they have on the reproduction in several animals. Looks largely at the influence of legumes on estrogenic activity (uterine weights).)
http://www.reproduction-online.org/content/6/1/115.full.pdf (Legumes produced infertility on female mice.)
http://www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/abs/10.4141/cjas62-023#.WxavMVMvzMI Uterine enlargement was found when looking at phytoestrogen effect on thyroid.)
http://docsdrive.com/pdfs/ansinet/pjn/2003/170-177.pdf (Goes over some anti nutritive factors of forage tree legumes.)
https://academic.oup.com/endo/article-abstract/105/2/342/2591867 (Shows goitrogen effect of tropical legume on grazing animals.)
And if all those endocrine disrupting properties of beans aren’t bad enough, we also find that beans have some of the highest content of a compound known as phytic acid of any types of foods. ›
Phytic acid is a strong chelator of minerals, meaning it easily binds to many essential minerals. This is helpful within that plant itself, since this is an evolutionary design meant to help the plant store lots of its own minerals.
However, the plant stores its minerals in the indigestible part of the plant or grain - as a natural defense mechanism - such as the bran, so even during human consumption, the human gut typically cannot actually digest and get access to these stored minerals - for example, in brown rice. https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/10408399509527712
The phytic acid however, poses an issue to the human body since it still chelates minerals in humans when consumed, especially in large amounts. Some researchers have even gone so far as to assert that humans should not consume phytic acid and it’s consumption in the human body is responsible for the population scale micronutrient deficiencies of nearly every essential vitamin and mineral. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1046/j.1365-2621.2002.00618.x
https://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr=&id=KtzLBQAAQBAJ&oi=fnd&pg=PA211&dq=inhibitory+effects+of+phytate&ots=JiMJQL2rCF&sig=5pZpEW2wTIRy8cxD_fluUJLn_aQ#v=onepage&q=inhibitory%20effects%20of%20phytate&f=false (This book on page 212 states the fact of the strong chelating effect of phytic acid and shows that it forms insoluble compounds with many essential minerals. The list includes copper, cobalt, magnesium, manganese, zinc, calcium, and iron.)
Of course this would also mean that vegans and vegetarians are vastly more susceptible to widescale vitamin and mineral deficiencies due to their high intake of phytic acid containing foods in the plant based diet nutrition. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12936958
So you avoid Beans because of Goitrogens, But what about the Potatoes you love and promote so much? They contain goitrogens too, why become such a Hypocrite? Anyway, Regardless of the fact that Phyto-estrogens actually bind to Estrogen receptors in the body and reduce your overall estrogen, You blame beans for estrogenic effects in men. What about Animal products which contain real Mammalian estrogen? Which is 1000 times more potent than Phyto-estrogen. You are just a scam artist, Coming up with sensational video titles to attract viewers, Anabolic men lol. With Catabolic brain function maybe.
Hello Chris. The estrogen isn't same in human body n has no ill effects on erection or mens health . opposite. Phytates block calcium? THEY BLOCK BONE DESTROYING whatever the study showed etc....!!!??? After a week we adjust to them n cooking destroys them too. New study in PURE showed beans cause longer living n less mortality. Studies DONE ON HUMANS
If this is true its cuz ppl been eating canned beans which nowasdays have more chemicals. Lol I grow up eating beans and my hormones were off the charts . Lol So if u r eating can beans then yes they r probably bad lol. Eat home made beans at least with those u know what ur eating. But the truth here is our food nowadays have more chemicals than years before sadly .
so independent doctors are telling us what we should exactly eat, fruit veggies and legumes and Monsato fired back by funding this clown. this loser is even telling us to eat more sugar. he is a Monsato agent.
Relatively few beans have problematic phytoestrogen concentrations or compositions. However, many people have the right gut bacteria to ferment some of these weaker estrogens into legitimately potent ones. This is especially true of soy and it's close relatives. However, beans are high in protein, and legume proteins have been shown to exert anti-androgenic effects.
Absolute pseudoscience and nonsense, not proven at all, not a legitimate meta analysis can prove that phytoestrogens effect estrogen levels in the body. Brian turner? Mac danzig? Frank medrano? Jon venus? Vegan gains? Myself? You telling me any above mentioned have hormone issues? You are biting on misinformation.
i was in row vegan diet eating lots of nuts
but from the time i add porage in morning and bin in my salad i feel much better, less depration, more energy, better brain fanction, fell stronger, skin smother, more mascle
Estrogen dominance actually causes several female issues, breast cancer to ovarian cancer. There are entire drugs for women based on the mechanism of reducing estrogen such as clomid, tamioxfen etc. So dont think his info is just for men. Also too much estrogen causes weight gain in women too. Look it all up.
Man you are foockin delusional i asked you also the last time but since you don't answer to any comments I'm asking you again please make a foockin video and explain what peoples should eat on daily basis
Another misguided video. Cook your beans right and it less of a problem. It's unrealistic to eat all vitamins and minerals. You'd need to be eating 20k+ to get them all. All the longest living people didn't avoid things like this guy does religiously. Your "on another level" health idea is retarded no offense. Eat and enjoy your beans people
Really, So have you not read the China Study? Meat and Animal products are horrible for the body. Come on man. You said you have been into this for about 15 yrs? Try 46 yrs with Dr. Mcdougall, a doctor..................Dr. Esselstyn...................come on man.

This guy really is starting to talk a whole lot of sh*t. Beans have been a staple of blue zones, while that doesnt suggest they are the best food ever it certainly suggests they arent something to worry about. Soak 'em and be happy.
First of all, small amounts of phytic acid is healthy and bone building. There is a reasons beans need to be properly cooked. Those studies means jack shit in the context of someone eating beans that is pressure cooked where 99% of phytic acid and other anti-nutrients is destroyed. Look at studies showing beans increase bone mineral density. I WONDER HOW THAT HAPPENS HUH? FUCKTARD.
Beans are one of the healthiest foods you can put in your body, look up the videos of NutritionFacts where Dr. Michael Greggor shows studies that conclude how latin people have the highest life expectency among all other races, because of the inclusion of beans into their daily diet.
I don't think that if you follow a diet that provies you with all of the minerals and vitamins that your body needs, greens, fruits, pasture-raised eggs, grass-fed meats, HIIT, weightlifting, low body fat%, intermittent fasting,etc... I don't think that all of that is going to be useless just because you added some beans into the mix.
Dude this is literally crap. Beans are one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet and all of the longest living cultures consume beans almost daily. Not to mention the fiber content in beans which can work wonders for your gut health and overall vitality. Dude your shit used to be good and informative but this is garbage
What' he says is true for me .suffering from high oestrogen, endometrial lining thickens,severe bleeding 2 times had D&C . Endometrial ablation, Vitamin and mineral ,deficiencies in spite of best foods ,
Want to work on this....
This is total b.s. I grew up in a Latin country where beans are eaten daily (and there's many others like it) and if anything the men had too much testosterone. Ditch dairy and beef as they're full of cow estrogen which are way more potent than phytoestrogens. Also look up xenoestrogens, they're in many products people use every day, even in tap water, and leave healthy foods like legumes alone.
And goitrogens in beans??? First time I hear that and I've done a lot of research about the thyroid. In any case, goitrogens are deactivated by cooking and nobody eats beans raw, which is probably how they were fed to the mice (very likely finely ground).
Oh, and beans interfere with reproductive health? Dude, it's hard to find people who can't have kids where beans are eaten daily, those are some bogus studies that ignore the evidence hundreds of years provide.
A way to reduce phytic acid (and gas) is to soak the raw beans in water overnight and then discard the water. Adding a little vinegar, which I've always done along with several spices for the taste, also reduces phytic acid.
I agree with most your points, apart from the whole in latin america they eat beans and they dont have reduced testo. There is such a thing as eating for your genotype, if a race has been eating one particular food for centuries they can evolve mechanisms to downregulate toxins/side effects of said food. Also Latin americans, Indians, middle easterners had their own special ways of preparing said foods to minimise risk of them.
I live a plant based life style and I have been eating beans ever since. My testosterone has increased since I began eating beans. Beans are not as bad as Mr.Walker makes them out to be. Where is Mr.Walker's research facts and placebos?
Is there any information that differentiates between whole beans and peeled beans? I've seen some videos of African cuisine, and they peel the beans. If there is an issue with beans, perhaps peeling them will eliminate the problem.
If you ate worried about selenium intake, simply eat a single Brazil nut a day. As far as iodine, eat 1/32 of a teaspoon of kelp daily and you will get plenty, it isn't hard. Phytates do not inhibit mineral absorption much at all, and are very beneficial for health, since people who consume more phytates have better bone mineral density and lower cancer risk. Beans contain phytoestrogens, which don't act at all like estrogen in the body, unlike meat and dairy, which contain actual estrogen identical to the estrogen in your body. Beans are continually associated with good health and longevity. It is fucking ridiculous that anyone is falling for this garbage.
One ounce of cooked beans a day is associated with a 8% lower mortality death rate.
Yeah...I don't think they are bad for you.
Hmm...I wonder why Hispanics have the longest life expectancy in the US...
Testicular Respiration ok think whatever you like you don’t know why I know I’m a Israelite you’re just assuming you do... but the MOST HIGH will show you who I am and we are soon enough... I don’t need the validation of anyone but יהוה much less some gentile.
Testicular Respiration a Pulse is essentially a Legume... and no matter how much you psych yourself that negros couldn’t be יהודים that doesn’t make it any less true... however I have nothing to prove to you... when it’s all said and don’t you will eat those words.
Cooking destroys phytic acid...To create a hormonal imbalance you have to eat very large amounts and probably not cook..
But anyway,the way of preparation matters a lot, everything that's in the can should be avoided
Hi Walker, the fundamental problem for your format for anyone who is awake and has experience with nutrition and health is that you sell stuff. You "target inform"
You are presenting half of the story and the complex nature of research is omitted.
Beans are complex and can be good. But you just dismissed them with incomplete research.
Humans are NOT carnivores, our digestive system can't really handle that, not for long anyway. We should not even be eating any animal products as it is, they kill people, poetic justice if you ask me.
Only 2 things to health? micronutrients and hormones.. Are you alright dude? Theres cholesterol , antioxidant balance , immune health , macronutrient balance, fiber intake , gut health and many others. If hormones and micronutrients where all there is then every disease would be cured with a multivitamin and a testosterone injection. Unfortunately thats not the case... What the fuck
I trust the advice of Joel Fuhrman MD who is in favor of eating beans . I avoid them because they are sprayed with Round Up before harvesting with a combine . Round Up is a horrible thing to have in food .
Cristofer the content is great as always! You have improved a lot also in terms of presenting the information, the audio is good, the animation slides are great!!! But: you should face the camera in a well lit room. You are sitting in a dark room reading from the laptop. You can record sentence by sentence. I know its more editing but this way you don't radiate these key words: rapport, enthusiasm, expert. I know you are all of these but to grow your channel you still need to work on tonality and presentation. Keep up the awesome work and good luck!!:)
People are mad cause they like Beans :)
I just started eating beans recently actually, I'm preparing them myself with soaking cooking then salting then vinegar tomato bacon onion's.
I like the potassium content, that's mainly it, and they're not very insulinogenic apparently.
Done with this channel. Your studies here don't line up with studies referenced in your last phytoestrogen video. You have a really dogmatic approach to research yourself for how much you talk about how dogmatic principles prohibit research.
Just don't eat other things with similar fats, it's not all or nothing but about BALANCE. And don't believe this crap about beans, just think of all the Latin American countries where beans are eaten daily and none of that "research" stuff is true.
Nonsense! Show me higher rates of prostate cancer in countries that eat beans every day.
Never mind, I did a search and the top 3 countries with highest incidence of prostate cancer do not eat beans, at least not regularly (Martinique, Norway & France).
Christopher Walker: Before you make all of these conclusions based on research, do you check to see how beans effect your own bod’s testosterone levels and other blood health markers? Research as you probably already know if flawed so to base everything conclusion purely on research would make your claims not very conclusive. If you have done blood work to see how beans effect your testosterone and other blood values please share them with your viewers. I’m sure everyone would like to hear about your own experience on the matter and it could also strengthen your conclusion about beans. Thank you!
Michael Sherman then this guy shouldn’t be pimping dairy and meat which are full of mammalian estrogens. Mammalian estrogen has to be stronger than phytoestrogens so assuming everything you said is true how can mammalian be any better.
Don’t listen to this fucking garbage. Beans are vastly superior to meat, dairy , and eggs which do raise estrogen. Beans have fiber which will help you eliminate estrogen in your waste. Unreal to condemn beans 🙄
Uh....I don't know.....Steroids? Typical ignorant comment bashing the vegan diet. I've eaten meat all my life. Been vegan for a year. My body composition is as good if not better than when I ate eggs and bacon everyday. And I just turned 60. You just have to consume enough calories on a plant based diet. You don't need meat to build muscle. Or to be an alpha male. Meat is just more calorie dense than plants. There are so many skinny fat meat eating gym bro's. What would you call them? You also see a lot of meat eating bodybuilders eventually develop health problems.
shut up !! for thousands of years humans ate watever they cud get as food was scarce. u r a result of watever your ancestors ate, we hv too much food to eat in this century anyway. who eats beans everday?? its maybe once a week maybe or once in 2 weeks
Erectile Dysfunction, or ED, is a condition of a male’s penis that prevents it from getting an erection from sexual intercourse. However, many male patients get this condition from many pre existing health problems. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, or the NCCAM, released that ED affects nearly 30 million males in the United States alone. In most patients, certain drugs can single handedly treat the condition. Below, is a list of different antibiotics used to treat ED and what side effects you may get, as well as what other treatments your doctor might prescribe you.
