    This is an excellent read for information on flaxseed. However i read this on there as well:

    "It is still too early to say that flax can prevent or cure cancer and to recommended it for that purpose. It's important to remember that plant estrogens, like human hormones, are not always benign. At high doses

    The same argument is going on with soy (about plant estrogen, not cancer). That is why so many people are opposed to consuming soy.

    Intersting that they say flax seed in high doses can cause cancer. Do they give any information about how much you would have to consume daily to have that effect on your body? If it is true then I am glad I switched to fish oil.
