The anti-estrogenic activity of 13 legumes and grasses has been assayed by use of weanling ovariectomized rats. The results display a wide range of anti-estrogenic activity depending on the species, the date of harvest, and the stage of growth. The existence of a relationship between the anti-estrogenic and estrogenic activities of the plant materials examined is discussed.
