Psst! Have your hair and your love life lost their luster?

According to Bolivian President Evo Morales, eating flesh from chickens that have been given female hormones could make men go bald and have “problems being men.”

When chickens are given hormones, as they are in so many countries, it gives credibility to Morales’ chrome-dome claim, and there are hard facts that eating meat causes impotence. And for another mood killer, if you catch your man rooting around in your bra drawer, it might be because he needs the support: Consuming meat and milk laced with estrogen and other hormones may contribute to the development of “moobs.”

Thanks for your advice, Mr. President. For even more presidential advice on all things animal-related, pick up a copy of PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk’s latest book, The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights.
