A recently published study on the benefits of flaxseed shows that a steady diet of the so-called “super food” in hens cuts down on the occurrence of ovarian cancer … something researchers hope to prove is the same for women.
The research from physiologists at the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine took four years and showed a significant decrease of the cancer cells of hens that ate the flaxseed diet.

Now lead researcher Dr. Buck Hales says he’s going to do more research to discover the benefits of Omega-3 oils found in flaxseed on the diets of humans.
Hales tells 970 WMAY's Bishop On Air (mp3 download) that he will work with several researchers at the SIU campus in Springfield on research involving a flaxseed diet for women.
Since flaxseed is a nutritional supplement and not a manufactured drug, Hales says it is not regulated by the FDA and is available in grocery and health-food stores across the country.
