UK Spies Plotted to Slip Estrogen Into Hitler’s Food

Monday, 15 Aug 2011 11:17 AM

During WWII, British forces hoped to tame Adolf Hitler’s aggression by slipping estrogen, the female hormone, into the Fuehrer’s food, reports Newser.
Professor Brian Ford of Cardiff University claims that British spies plotted to infuse Hitler’s meals with a tasteless form of estrogen, according to his book 'Secret Weapons: Technology, Science and the Race to Win World War II.'
This tasteless hormone would be the only feasible way to get an additive past Hitler’s meal taste-testers.
“Research has shown the importance of sex hormones; they were beginning to be used in sex therapy in London,” Ford writes. “The Allies hoped to smuggle estrogen into Hitler’s food so he would become more feminine and less aggressive.”
But the British weren’t the only forces with plots of food warfare. If the Nazis lost the war, they planned to leave poisoned sausages and Nescafe behind for Allied troops to devour, says Ford.
