Repeated vandalism[edit]

The logvinenkase vandals were back again today.

Please watch for references added to this article which mention:

  • logvinenkase, Elena Logvinenko
  • Nathan Tek, Nathaniel Tek

Several additional names were also added in today's vandalism; all were from the schedule on this page.

You found it! I was wondering where all this nonsense was coming from. My best guess was that the names were from some sort of RPG or low budget sci-fi. Now I know where... but my curiosity remains: why? Rhobite 03:07, Jun 17, 2005 (UTC)
I can't imagine why someone would add the same nonsense back at intervals over such a long period—most vandals don't have anywhere near that kind of attention span. Most curious. --TenOfAllTrades(talk) 03:23, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Biosynthesis section[edit]

Does the writer of this article have a source for the Biosynthesis section of this article.

Biological activity[edit]

This article is over-focused on the effects of exposure to high quantities of synthetic estrone while mostly ignoring the biological function of estrone. Sometimes it does not clearly distinguish between the two. There needs to be a section on why estrone is important in pregnancy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.119.208.174 (talk) 18:27, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

This entry is misleading[edit]

I would strongly suggest a throughfully revision of this entry for Estrone. Estrone is before all an endogenous hormone with important role in our metabolism, while here it's rather treated as a poisonous hazard. Please focus more on its actual biological role rather on its effects on the environment and exposure to it. Reading this entry it pretty looks like every women around should already be died by cancer and so on, for it is one of the main estrogens in our body ! So our human specie would have been already extinguished since long, which luckily enough it is not the case... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.20.40.80 (talk) 22:17, 11 June 2014 (UTC)


Why are there no ranges in humans? This is VERY incomplete!
