this thread is an atrocity! Here what I found: M. Donaldson, “Nutrition and cancer: A review of the evidence for an anti-cancer diet,” Nutrition Journal, vol. 3, 2004, p. 19. <http://www.nutritionj.com/content/3/1/19> Other researchers have tested flax seed and prostate cancer. In an animal model using mice, Lin et al  found that a diet supplemented with 5% flax inhibited the growth and development of prostate cancer in their experimental mouse model. A pilot study of 25 men who were scheduled for prostatectomy surgery were instructed to eat a low-fat diet (20% or less of energy intake) and to supplement with 30 g of ground flaxseed per day. During the follow-up of an average of 34 days there were significant changes in serum cholesterol, total testosterone, and the free androgen index . The mean proliferation index of the experimental group was significantly lower and apoptotic indexes higher compared to historical matched controls. Ground flax seed may be a very beneficial food for men battling prostate cancer.
