Necrosis is a process over which the organism’s biochemistry has no control and consequently is accompanied by characteristic morphological changes indicating an almost violent death. It is often associated with the presence of inflammation, typified by the presence of leukocytes that have migrated into the tissue to the site of damage. Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, on the other hand, involves a series of defined biochemical events that result in the removal of the cell contents and membranes in a manner that, in comparison with necrosis, leaves with little morphological evidence.

In the absence of dose–response information, especially a no effect level, no risk assessment for human use is possible from these data and conclusions about human use cannot sensibly be drawn. Other studies have failed to show carcinogenic potential for the common mushroom or its constituents (16,17). The study by Toth and coworkers in 1997 suggested that the negative finding was due to insufficient mushroom intake, acknowledging the fact that if you are sufficiently dedicated you can induce cancer in mice eventually, so long as the strain, dose levels, and design are chosen appropriately.

This difference is removed by castrating the males and restored by administration of male hormones. There are significant differences between male and female rats in drug metabolism and physiology, which can result in different toxicological responses. Diet Diet and nutrition are also significant. The importance of diet is illustrated by the tumor profile for Japanese people in Japan, which is different to that found in west coast Americans. However, Japanese people living in California show a profile of tumors similar to that of their American neighbours.
