What are some benefits and risks of estrogen blockers for men?

What are some benefits and risks of estrogen blockers for men?

There are: No benefits. The only men who take them are "body builders" who put their faith in pharmacology instead of their genetics and work ethic, and then suffer the consequences for their poor decision making.

20yr male 69' 140lb... considering taking estrogen blockers to increase testosterone and build muscle. Thoughts?

Bad bad idea: No offense meant, but don't do it. That's medically unsound and the limited studies don't even support that it works. This kind of idea should be in fairy tales by now. Surely you can bulk up with sound training and without these crazy body-builder fads? Good wishes. ...Read more

Hair growth: There should be nothing to cause hair growth problems in a 20 year old man. Please see your doctor about that. Is there any evidence that your testosterone is low?

Natural breast cancer remedies? I learned that estrogen-receptor blockers treat cancer, but what are some ER blockers?
