    Many natural products are also endocrine modulators.  Lavender for example can enhance breast development in young boys because it has both estrogenic and anti-androgenic properties.

    I am not advocating banning lavender oil either as it is an excellent antiinflammatory agent and muscle relaxant.  Plus it smells wonderful!  But it is good to be fully informed about the benefits and risks of both natural and synthetic products.

    Note my opinions are personal and do not necessarily reflect the views of my employer.
