New research from South Dakota State University shows that
Flaxseed may decrease the risk of colorectal cancers. Distinguished
Professor C. Dwivedi, head of the University’s Pharmaceutical Sciences
and associates conducted the study on a special strain of mouse that
dependably develops colon cancer due to gene mutations. This strain of
mouse is developed to investigate the effects of cancer preventive
agents on people who are genetically predisposed to colon cancer. The
results show that animals that received Flaxseed meal and Flaxseed oil
in their diets had 45% fewer tumors in their small intestine and colon
compared to non-supplemented animals. The tumors in the Flaxseed group
besides being few were also very small in size compared to those
growing in non-supplemented animals. The study is published in the
February 2009 issue of the journal Nutrition and Cancer.
