A study on women with Breast Cancer conducted at the University of Toronto revealed how beneficial ground flax seeds could be. After 30 days of muffins with 5 teaspoons of ground flax seeds, tumor markers were reduced from 30% to 71%. That’s pretty impressive. Plant estrogens have a very protective effect on the estrogen receptor sites and also help to lower the levels of circulating estrogens. I try to get in my 5 teaspoons per day and this flax bread is a great way to enjoy it. The rosemary gives it a very earthy taste that goes well with salads and soups. Bon Appetit!
