Default flax lignans

"Preliminary results from recent human studies conducted at RMIT University in Australia show significant effects of flaxseed lignans intake on biomarkers of breast cancer risk in postmenopausal women. The studies reveal flaxseed lignans significantly influence endogenous sex hormone production, metabolism and biological activity and may exert significant antiestrogenic effects which are associated with the decreased risk of breast health. These findings add to previous scientific evidence showing the beneficial effects of flaxseed lignans on breast health."

Default 50%

Can you imagine if a drug company could make such claims?! Diet and exercise, ladies and gents.

"Breast cancer survivors who eat a healthy diet and exercise moderately can reduce their risk of dying from breast cancer by half, regardless of their weight, suggests a new longitudinal study from the Moores Cancer Center at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD)."
