Excellent research references for this article. I like to mix a tablespoon of ground flaxseeds with my morning cup of orange juice. I get the benefits of omega 3 fatty acids, fiber and lignans, along with a dose of tasty vitamin C!

I found your blog via Tara Parker-Pope's and love it. Perhaps you are my alter ego. I have always dreamed of becoming a medical librarian, but instead fill the yearning by spending hordes of time in consumer health libraries, geeking out online, and researching and writing about the young adult cancer community for my Everything Changes blog and book. I'm excited to share your blog with my readers.

I have heard that flax seed was tested on rats and proved to be advantageous. However, human's can't digest it the same way and therefore it's value is minimal. Have you heard about his theory and what do you think?

Hey Mary,

You just grind the flax seed--otherwise it passes right through you. Or buy it already ground as flax meal (Bob's Red Mill). But be sure to keep the flax seed or meal in the fridge so it doesn't turn rancid.

Lots of new literature (large studies) out recently saying it lowers cholesterol--& so many wonderful omega-3 properties--I try to eat a couple tablespoons daily. Try it--you'll like it! Or use high quality fish oil. When I have a chance, I'll summarize some of the new favorable literature recently out on flax seed.
