Flaxseed, a staple of the pre-industrial diet, may help prevent a scourge of modern man:
Three rounded tablespoons of the ground grain a day, combined with a low-fat diet, reduced
expected tumour growth and lowered levels of hormones and other markers associated with a
problem prostrate. Flaxseed is high in fibre and omega-3 fatty acids, both of which have
been shown to protect against cancer.
