The flax-prostate cancer connection is news to me - I'm new to the whole
world of flax anyway. But thanks for passing the news on. I am a woman, but
I had been planning on recommending flax to my Dad, who has a history of
heart and cholesterol problems. I think I will wait to see what else
I did check with the Canadian Flax Council, as a few people here suggested,
and I even e-mailed them with a question. I asked if it were true that
cooking flax reduces the benefit of the omega 3's. My respondant insisted
this is not true, is in fact a popular myth, and he referred me to a fact
sheet that my poor, sad old computer was not able to retrieve.
I know we've been round and round on the proper use and storage of flax, but
I thought I'd pass on what a presumed authority told me.
