    Question Flaxseed Oil and Prostate Cancer

    I just received an email from my mom telling me about a distant relative who has prostate cancer. He was supplementing with flaxseed oil as the doctor, a prostate cancer survivor and specialist, said to stop immediately b/c flaxseed oil is a fertilizer for prostate cancer.

    I did a search on this and found nothing. My mom is now all over me about dropping this supplement. Is there any evidence to support this? any counter-evidence?

    Thanks/Pepper

    I don't know what the source for this is, but this was cut/paste into the email message:



    Diet

    • Avoid red meat, dairy fat, and egg yolks.
    • Eat fish three to four times a week.
    • Use olive oil instead of vegetable oil.
    • Avoid canola and flaxseed oils at all costs!
    • Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables.
    • Eat stewed or cooked tomatoes.
    • Drink two to four cups of green tea a day.
    Supplements

    • Take 200 mcg of selenium a day.
    • Take 400 IU of Vitamin E a day.
    • Take 30 mg of lycopene a day.

    I wonder if this means you should avoid flaxseed oil while running cycles...or avoid it overall

    Vitamn E is being viewed with some doubt :Vitamin E may do more harm than good

    BUt here is an opinion to the contrary : To "E" or not to "E"?
