Hey there ladies, how are you all doing this fine weekend? I have a cold in my chest and have been coughing so hard that I have a headache. Why cant women hock up phlegm like men do? Oh well,tomorrow is another day. The reason I am writing is that on the news last night and in yesterdays paper there is an article on flaxseed.
They are now claiming that eating 2 tblspoons of milled or ground flaxseed has shown to reduce tumours in women with breast cancer by about 60%. Of course anyone in the health food industry already knew that,but now that medical drs. are saying it everyone is going crazy buying the stuff. Myself included!!!! Apparently you can put it in food,or just eat it plain. I am going to give it a try, it is all natural so what harm can it do? here are a few different exerpts from the newspaper. "researchers found there was a slowing down in tumours growth,in cancer patients fed flaxseed muffins. Our results are very exciting because this is the first time anyone has demostrated these changes in breast cancer with any dietary component."
"Earlier animal studies have shown that flaxseed has anti-cancer properties,but the researchers were surprised by how potent the effect appears to be in people"
"it was noted that more studies are needed to determine flaxseeds true effectiveness"
Well, I hope that gives you some fuel for fight ladies. Have a great weekend.
Love and hugs from Tiger.xo
