Q. I read on a website regarding the possibility that consuming flaxseed oil may promote prostate cancer. There seem to be conflicting opinions on the matter. Would you please comment on this in a future newsletter.

A.   I have seen no such evidence. A search on medical research sites did not reveal such association. As a general rule I recommend the use of flax seed ingestion as opposed to using large amounts of the oil. See http://www.raysahelian.com/flaxseed.html
