Common autism supplement affects endocrine system

 "Plant-based diets are healthy. Plants are high in flavonoids. So flavonoids are healthy. At least that's the reasoning of many manufacturers of flavonoid-based nutritional supplements. But a University of Colorado Cancer Center study published this week in the journal Hormones & Cancer shows that may not be the case. Flavonoids tested in the study (luteolin and quercetin ) affected the endocrine system in ways that in one case promoted cancer and in another repressed it."
