New Research on Breast Cancer Prevention!

This month an study from Germany was published that shows using plant lignans (the stuff at the bottle of your flax seed oil bottle) could help to PREVENT breast cancer in pre menopausaul women. The study used biomarkers and blood levels of lignans as markers. It seems up to a 78% reduction in possible breast cancer could be achieved. This is what we look for in research and it was not on your front page news...

The study was published in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention. Just in case you are not a current subscriber, here is a link to an article.

This is another good reason to add ground flax seeds to your daily diet. Next months newsletter will publish the flax seed muffin recipe for those of you who enjoy cooking and would like the healthy recipe.
