Can you tell that I like flax seeds? I first became enthralled with Flax Seeds when I read about a Canadian Study at the University of Toronto. Thirty women awaiting surgery for Breast Cancer were given a muffin containing 25 grams of Flax Seed, or about 5 teaspoons. The cancerous tissue that was analyzed after surgery revealing tumor growth markers were reduced by 30-71%. Flax seeds have an anti-metastatic effect and actually help promote cancer cell death. That is why I try to get my 5 teaspoons of Flax seeds every day. Bon Appetit!
