Flaxseed can reverse a pre-cancerous condition

© What Doctors Don't Tell You (Issue 102)

Now something for the gentlemen. There could also be some good news for men who've reached that stage in life when thoughts turn to the prostate. A combination of flaxseed and a low-fat diet can slow the spread of benign prostatic tissue, and may even reverse precancerous changes in prostate tissue.

Researchers tested the combination therapy on a group of 15 men, who possibly had early-stage prostate cancer according to biopsy. They were put on a low-fat diet, and supplemented with 30 g daily of ground flaxseeds. Of these, two did not need a repeat biopsy because PSA levels had normalized, while only one of the other 13 had possible prostate cancer on follow-up biopsy.

It's been suggested that ground flaxseed may be safer than flaxseed oil, although patients may develop vitamin B6 deficiency.
