Basically, excessive consumption of alcohol throws off the hormonal balance, and increases the production of estrogen, which promotes the growth of fatty deposits in men, around the chest area- or in simpler words, gives you male breasts.

So, if excessive consumption of alcohol promotes estrogen production in men, will it have the same effects on women? It might or might not. But excessive consumption of alcohol is definitely not the healthy way to increase estrogen levels in women.

Studies have shown that high estrogen levels in women is related to higher risk of breast cancer. If you really want to increase estrogen levels in your body, please see a specialist doctor for that. Consumption of excessive alcohol will harm your health- promotes fat storage, cholesterol build up and can even affect your sex life.
