"DIM also inhibited the growth of primary goiter CELLS by 70% compared to untreated controls. Contrary to traditional belief that cruciferous vegetables are “goitrogenic,” DIM has anti-proliferative effects in glandular thyroid proliferative disease. Our preclinical studies provide a strong rationale for the clinical exploration of DIM as an adjuvant to surgery in thyroid proliferative disease."
THAT is documented. And there's a lot more just like it."--Wommie writes.
But, Wom, again these are ONLY studies of CELLS in a test tube. Not rodents, not primates, not humans. I guess I have not made that point clear and I should stop trying. Test tube studies of isolated cells are not reliable for the reasons I gave last night. Don't believe me, ask somebody who deals with cell line studies.
I'm begging someone to show me DIM human studies. Okay, even DIM rodents. I am open. I don't need to be right, I need to be accurate.
And I am totally open to estrogen imbalance and even fluctuations. Even post meno women have it. I can tell when my estrogen is low, or at least low in relationship to progesterone because my appetite is voracious.
