Estrogen in Brewer's Yeast

hey guys,

does anyone know something about the estrogenic effects of brewer’s yeast? Since it’s a byproduct of beer fabrication, that just came to my mind. I’m eating about 50g of it every day since months, didn’t notice anything. Thinking about consuming more of it.

In Paavo Airola’s immortal classic How To Get Well he has a hard-on for brewer’s yeast.

Thanks, except for bloating, which luckily doesn’t apply to me, i only found good things about brewer’s yeast. I’m just afraid I turn into a woman, when consuming up to 100g a day.
