Endocrine disruption

Expand content Collapse content
Concern Reference
Extract reduced estrogen secretion from human granulosa cells and inhibited binding of estradiol and progesterone to their receptors. Dosing rats with powdered F. vesiculosus led to increased estrous cycle length and decreased circulating estradiol.Christine F Skibola, John D. Curry, Catherine VandeVoort, Alan Conley & Martyn T. Smith. 2005. Brown kelp modulates endocrine hormones in female sprague-dawley rats and in human luteinized granulosa cells. The Journal of nutrition 135(2), 296-300
