Diindolylmethane Alters Gene Expression in Human Keratinocytes
This lab study showed that DIM (a substance found in cruciferous veggies that has shown the ability to affect detoxification of estrogen in a favorable way to protect against several types of cancer) affects the gene expression of skin cells in a favorable way by shutting down the proliferation of the human papilloma virus. HPV has been linked to increased risk of several types of epithelial cancers.
