Take lavender or tea tree oil and grow breasts

Not good if you are male, scary. Three young boys grew breast tissue after exposure to lotions and shampoos containing lavender or tea tree oil, researchers say.

It is not uncommon for boys to develop breast tissue during puberty or just after, but the boys affected by the plant oils were aged four, seven and 10.

The natural oils may be “gender-bending” chemicals mimicking effects of the female hormone, oestrogen, the findings suggest. The boys were otherwise normal, and lost the breast tissue within months of discontinuing use of the products.

Researchers who identified the oils as the cause of the abnormalities in the three pre-pubertal boys have warned parents and doctors to beware of the effects of any toiletry products containing the oils.

If consumers are concerned about exposure to lavender or tea tree oil, they should talk to their physicians.

Now that physicians are aware of the problem, they can document cases
says Derek Henley of the US National Institute of Health Sciences labs in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, US.

What a load of crap. tea Tree has been used by aboriginies for thousands of years. Don't ya think they would have noticed if their boys were growing tits? And lavender has been in frequent medicinal use as an antibiotic and cleansing agent since roman times, and even before. Dont ya think a plant that started making man boobies would have been noticed and documented so men would stay away from it?

This is yet another example of why of have basically little to no faith in medical research anymore. I remember 20 years ago some researchers claimed that hamburgers and cheez whiz were good for you.
