Estrogenic potencies of mineral water expressed as estradiol equivalent concentrations (EEQ) measured with the yeast estrogen screen. Mineral water from three individual bottles of several brands (A–O) were tested in three independent experiments (each sample in eight replicates). Negative control (NC), n = 226; water samples, n = 65 to 75. b.q.l. below quantification limit, double stars p < 0.01 and triple stars p < 0.001 as determined by Mann–Whitney test
