In brief: Flaxseed & prostate

Studies about prostate cancer & flaxseed -- a rich source of the omega-3 fatty acid ala -- are confusing.
At university of maryland medical center, some men who took flaxseed with a low-fat diet had slower prostate tumor growth than men who didn't supplement. But mayo clinic reported an increased risk of prostate cancer in some men who took ala -- not specifically naming flax seed. ? To suggest.
