1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes and no
The amount is so low that it does not have an effect on the person eating the sweet potatoes.
It has been estimated that in order to consume enough sweet potatoes to reach a level of estrogen contained in one days production of estrogen from a normal reproductive age ovary would require over a 2400 pounds of sweet potatoes.
