I had Gynecomastia as a child, and I have no clue how I got it then. My father had it when he was a kid so it might be genetic. I don’t know if having it once makes someone more susceptible to getting it again and there has been no research (that I’ve found) that says otherwise. So, for all of you that have continued to chime in about the Lavender, thank you but its not something I’d like to put myself through again.
As far as this guy is concerned, your help is not the kind that anybody can get anything out of. Not once did I ask for a lecture on Lavender and instead of respecting it, you had to keep pushing. So go ahead and keep rolling your eyes, and keep laughing on the floor, you can be “that guy”. If you don’t like what I post you can keep your crappy attitudes and opinions to yourself.
You’re being very sensitive. You will learn.
With regard to your assessment of me: I have many thousands of posts here, and a great many of them are helpful.
One of the ways I help people is to disabuse them of faulty notions. This is what I was doing with you. You don’t like it? What can I say?
Perhaps your issue with gynecomastia as a child makes you more sensitive about the subject. Even so, I would still say there is no reliable precedent for having a ‘relapse’ for this condition. You are 26 now; you’re out of the woods. You can breathe easy.
There truly is no need to be over-cautious, especially because one study of questionable merit suggests there may be a relationship between these oils and pre-pubescent boys.
You’re not holding out on us are you? You’re not secretly pre-pubescent?
Let me tell a little something about essential oils: many of them have similar properties - even as they have differences. If you’re so concerned about this supposed relationship with lavender and tea tree oil with gynecomastia, you should perhaps take a look at the components of some of the other oils in Eroset’s formula. If it’s possible that those two oils cause anything, it could easily be just as true of lemongrass oil and perhaps rosemary oil as well - if that study has any merit (which is one kind of if), and if you were pre-pubescent (which is, perhaps, even more significant).
Lavender oil is not going to make you grow boobies.
Especially if you don’t use it, which is entirely up to you. Free advice is just that: do with it what you will.
Just don’t assume that because Lurky posted a link that it’s the 100% true. Learn to evaluate a little better.
Lastly, with regard to this:
If you don’t like what I post you can keep your crappy attitudes and opinions to yourself.
Or I can post them, as I have at least as much right to do here as you do. If you think my attitude is ‘crappy’ or have a problem with my opinion, I can’t help that, but you can’t really tell me or anyone else here what to do.
And if you continue to insult the poster, rather than tackle the ideas that are posted, you won’t last long. I’m just saying. If you take things less personally and try to get to understanding why someone might post a contrary opinion you’ll do better.
