does variation in dietary intake of estrogens account for population-based differences in behaviors?

estrogens are present in plants in varying degrees. their function in plants relate more to the growth axis than reproductive axis. the latter function may have been an exaptation in animals. is it possible than variation of behaviors across populations relate to their dietary intake of sex steroids? agriculture likely preceded the emergence of many modern ideologies. does the serenity, tranquility, peace, passiveness, and docility of Asia and India relate to high intake of dietary soy, which is rich in estrogens?
