"Not only am I losing weight, but my skin (more ashen and acne prone), hair (damaged with spit ends), and nails (soft and brittle) are healthier. And it didn't take that long. I just put the coconut oil in fruit smoothies in the morning. Imagine what health improvements my body would have if I (and I will) increase my coconut oil intake to cooking with it! Also, my biggest health success with coconut oil has been that my immune system dramatically improving: way less fatigued, sleeping less, hormones evening out, and able to ward off flu's/viruses/colds much better. And, given my body's health in life so far, that speaks volumes! Besides, I've applied much more from your knowledge, searched your site, forwarded articles to friends/relatives, so much more has been utilized by not only myself, but many others too. Kudos on natural health and helping each of us take control of our own health again. Thank you, Dr. Mercola! Bravo!" -J Newman; Monterey, CA
In normal tissue, DIM (300nM) can activate the ATM genetic repair pathway in response to irradiation damage in a manner dependent on BRCA1 (one of its targets  ) without increasing survival of breast cancer cells (MDA-MB-231  ); there are known alterations in this pathway in some breast cancers where BRCA1 is reduced while ATM itself seems to be hyperactive, and oral supplementation of 300mg DIM has been noted to increase BRCA1 mRNA levels after 4-6 weeks supplementation (measured in white blood cells) in women who had a low activity mutation.
