BEST Health Book of 2017. Period. NEW insights.

Would you listen to Estrogeneration again? Why?

I rarely/never say "I would listen to a health/science/wellness audiobook again" but in this case it's different. The craft of this book is amazing! 3 Parts = (1) identifying artificial estrogens and where they are (it's WORSE than you think!), (2) illustrating major health problems with over 500 excellent scientific references - I bought a paperback version of this book because I wanted to utilize some of those references for my podcast I host (3) showing how obesity, breast cancer, and infertility can be PASSED to future generations AND explaining in detail how to avoid these estrogenics using Gold, Silver, and Bronze Level avoidance plans.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Estrogeneration?

The study showing polar bears, whale blubber, and sea otter brains have high levels of parabens - because these estrogenics are circulating around the globe and causing major health problems in wildlife species, just like they do in humans - was the most eye opening thing I've seen in a long time. This stuff should be front page news but it seems that corporations are burying the information because they make loads of money on these artificial chemicals. I thought the author, Anthony Jay, did an incredible job illustrating the bias and spin within professional science. It was not angry or bitter, just saying calling a spade a spade. Basically, all of Chapter 3 of Estrogeneration was about this scientific spin. It included, btw, quote from the amazing Marcia Angel, whose books I recommend you read. Marcia Angel was the editor of the New England Journal of Medicine and resigned after 20 years because companies were basically "sponsoring" research studies to find certain results and spin products as "healthy". Like soy. Anthony Jay does an amazing job working this all into Estrogeneration.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love how Victor and Anthony found some pristine mountain lake and caught "estrogenic-free fish". Hilarious stories.

Any additional comments?

I think Dr. Jay will get a lot of "fake" negative reviews and "trumped up" bad press about this book because he shows REAL problems with SOY, BIRTH CONTROL, PLASTICS and other mega money makers. Don't be fooled. I am subscribing to his YouTube "Chagrin & Tonic" channel today and literally cannot wait until his next book comes out in this Chagrin & Tonic Series. I'm pumped.

LAVENDAR = MAN BOOBS - New England Journal of Med

Would you listen to Estrogeneration again? Why?

What I loved about Estrogeneration is that Anthony Jay does NOT care about corporate or political backlash. He tells the story of artificial estr0gens like. it. is. I'd listen again, not just because the audiobook has so much science I couldn't even take it all down in my EverNote, but because it was entertaining.

Which character – as performed by Anthony G. Jay – was your favorite?

This wasn't a novel (thank God!) but it has "characters". I would say the ANTAGONISTS were the estrogenics, the "Evil Ten". The PROTAGONIST is you, Anthony Jay and his early college life, and - most of all - your future children and grandchildren!!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

100%. There was extremely dense information here with NO FILLER but it was fun enough I could listen to the entire book in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

xoxoxo = this book

SOLVES MODERN DISEASE EXPLOSION

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I tell all my friends about this book. It SOLVES all of our modern diseases and the explosion of diseases like allergies (up 75% since 1980), infertility (up 100% since 1980), obesity (up 150% since 1980), AND breast cancer (up 250% since 1980). Avoid estrogenics!

What other book might you compare Estrogeneration to and why?

Aspects of this book compare to "Born to Run". It has a lot of fun stories that connect to the main theme, without being overly scientific.

What does Anthony G. Jay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Since this book is read by the author, Anthony Jay, you can tell where he is most passionate and excited

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Read his dedication. It will crack you up. It's a good example of the entire book.

Any additional comments?

EXCELLENT book!! I can't say enough about how excellent this book was because the readability and the depth of information - a tricky thing to balance - done PERFECTLY HERE!!!

Just got BETTER AND BETTER

What did you love best about Estrogeneration?

I liked how this book ramped up. It started with some basic stuff and listing artificial estrogens. Then it got more and more interesting. Fat storage in WHALES from estrogen waste in oceans comes to mind.... Chapter 9 was my favorite about inheritance of health problems. I've never heard ANYTHING like this!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Estrogeneration?

Interesting how SOY and FLAX have more than 100,000 micrograms of phytoESTROGEN and all other plants have less than 1,000 (except may lavender and cannabis, I'm not sure). In chapter 8, it was also new to me to see how gut bacteria can break some of these more "natural" estrogens down, unlike phthalates, etc.

What about Anthony G. Jay’s performance did you like?

The energy was excellent and the feeling was there, even though Anthony Jay is obviously not a professional audiobook producer - I appreciated that HE read it and put so much feeling into the story

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh out louds on every chapter, for real

Any additional comments?

I'll be interested to see what pro athletes think of this book as it becomes bigger and bigger. It is clearly an athletic edge to avoid fake estrogen and this book is a force to be reconned with

This book is PERFECT for listening, I LOVED IT!!!

Would you listen to Estrogeneration again? Why?

There is so much information here AND probably 1/10th is stories so I would DEFINITELY listen to this audiobook multiple times. I'll probably revive this book once per year or so but mostly I'm spreading the word to my friends!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When I learned that FAT, CANCER, AND INFERTILITY can be PASSED TO FUTURE GENERATIONS, I was in shock. Epigenetics seems to be the future of medicine and personal health and Anthony Jay definitely has a keen insight in this area, without making it boring or getting too technical. Excellent!!

Any additional comments?

Recognizing these top 10 artificial estrogens in our environment really expanded my mind. Shoot - I didn't even realize BPA was "estrogenic"! Now I understand why BPA is so terrible for our health, along with so many other chemicals!!

Explains EPIGENETICS better than ANYONE

What did you love best about Estrogeneration?

Simple, easy to read. But this is just the start. Deep, fascinating, new, funny. I hear things like "we live to old age on average, our society must be healthy!" but Dr. Jay does an excellent job showing (1) 250% increase in breast cancer, (2) rises in allergies, (3) rises in infertility, (4) 33% of America is overweight, and ALL OF THESE ISSUES CONNECT TO ESTROGENICS!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Estrogeneration?

I appreciate the pure enjoyment and fun that Dr. Jay finds in his life and how well he communicates this love of nature, fishing, and adventure

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book certainly made me LAUGH many times, which shocked me. How can you discuss breast cancer but still be tasteful AND funny? Dr. Jay can.

Any additional comments?

Overall, the book was amazing, content was new and enlightening, and I appreciated that the author read the book. Dr. Jay added a lot of interesting enthusiasm and pace changes. He also has a talent for pronouncing huge science words. I would have liked to hear the APPENDIX included in this audiobook, since it appears to be a short summary of all the top 10 estrogenics, but I'm still giving 5-starts because the book was so overwhelmingly good.

This is Amazing!

I had no idea about all the things making me sick and weak. Worst of all, the moobs and lack of muscle tone.

Excellent!

Does a nice job showing how sort of toxic and polluted modernity. Entertaining book. Highly recommended. Also liked how it describes the perverse incentives that dominate gov funded research and also how little money even from private charities goes to real meaningful research

Super eye opening content

Loved the writing style and the eye opening content. The presentation from the author made it all the more identifiable and real. The only reason I mark down the production was the audio quality was not the quality I normally expect from my audible purchase. The text was clear but between the interruptions of the voice with the twang in his voice and the lackluster EQ on the authors recording I had to make the conscious decision to ignore it. Small things that add up. Once again the content is totally worth it and I’m nitpicking. READ THIS BOOK! It’s information has generational impact when applied to our daily lives.

dr. Jay provides new insights

dr. Jay provides new insights into little-known areas that are so crucial for so many issues we face today. He does this an entertaining way and also provide Solutions for controlling our exposure to these substances. I have recommended this book to many people and can't wait until the next books from dr. Jay

I'm glad I live in Europe

This is a good book.

Initially I thought it was going to be a bit conspiratorial and based on pseudo-science, but not at all.

I'm vegan and have been concerned about oestrogen in soy products for some time -- and while the general consensus is that they're safe, it's interesting to find out that this isn't necessarily the case.

I'm still vegan, but now soya free and already feel the brain fog lifting and my thoughts clearing.

The author isn't vegan however, and as such he points to the dangers of oestrogen in many of the other products we use and take for granted (including dairy, which doesn't apply to me).

It's a tough challenge to avoid all these oestrogen causing substances, but I think it may be worth it.

Good content, not so good audio

The voice changing between an older deep South guy who reads out the chapter titles to Anthony reading the chapters themselves was quite jarring and also confusing.

The content of the book itself is quite good but with the above and also a few recording issues I could hear in this audiobook (there is one time where is sounds like Anthony had dropped a marble or pen or something and it is heard bouncing off the table) made it hard to get entirely engaged.

Overall, pretty good book with some pretty concerning info in it but it’d be nice to have the audio work redone for future listeners
