LINSEED OIL as antioxidant: is it Science Fraud?

21-04-2006 10:41

In studies of laboratory animals, flaxseed has shown both estrogen-like and anti-estrogenic effects. Although one small pilot study of breast-feeding women showed no adverse effects in infants whose breast-feeding mothers took flaxseed oil, pregnant and breast-feeding women are not advised to use flaxseed or flaxseed oil. Potentially, the unpredictable estrogenic or anti-estrogenic effects may affect developing fetuses and infants. In addition, the possible effects of flaxseed or flaxseed oil on young children have not been studied, so they are not recommended for children under 12 years of age.
Women with hormone-dependent conditions such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, or cancers of the breast, ovaries, or uterus should not take flaxseed products due to possible estrogenic effects. Men with prostate cancer should also avoid taking flaxseed products.
Flaxseed can block the esophagus or parts of the intestinal tract. Therefore individuals who have had esophageal or intestinal blockages should not use flaxseed.

17-04-2006 19:42

They are coming by the millions from all
over the world. Let them come here. Let
them find that there are not enough jobs.
They will find the military to be the last
resort when their welfare is cut off. And
let them acquire Gulf War Syndrom
(radiation sickness from uranium
munitions).! It works just fine in the
minds of the neo-cons.
