Inhibition of Enzymes That Contribute to Breast and Prostate Cancer Growth by Mushroom Species

Figure 229 Aromatase inhibition by mushroom species. The lesser the value, the greater the inhibition of aromatase, significant for limiting the growth of breast cancer.

Figure 230 5-alpha-reductase inhibition by mushroom species. Mushrooms having lower values show greater inhibition of 5-alpha-reductase, significant for limiting the growth of prostate cancer.
