    Estradiol might be a factor in the development of prostata cancer?
    According to the attached publication, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1745
    testosterone concentrations do not differ notably between black and white men. However, black men have higher estradiol levels.
    There is a similar correlation between the general age-related increase of estradiol in men and the increase of prostata cancer. The opposite applies for testosterone. When testosterone decreases, prostata cancer increases.
    Is there a link between estradiol and prostata cancer and why?
    Looking forward to hearing comments to this view.
