Flax Seed Oil - Friend or Foe

Blogged under Diet by fat bastard on Saturday 5 July 2008 at 5:27 am

About a year and a half ago, I visited with a nutritionist to try to get my weight issues resolved.  I learned quite a bit that day.  But I really only applied a few things to my overall lifestyle (the rest was quickly aborted).

One thing I took away from that discussion was that Flax Seed Oil contributes to prostate cancer.  So, generally, I’ve been avoiding flax seed oil since.

However, I’ve noticed the stuff cropping up in just about everything.  And since my grocery store has a very limited selection, I’m faced with figuring out the lesser of two evils.  If given a choice between oils I know are bad for me and flax seed oil, which should I choose?

I did a bit of research and here are a few articles I found:

My take away?  Since my family history has me more at risk for heart disease than prostate cancer, I’m probably better off opting for flax seed oil products (when fish oil isn’t appropriate).  But I saw nothing in my research that told me I should actively shun flax seed oil.  The studies are far from conclusive.

I’ll make sure to visit my doctor regularly and have the oil checked.  If a problem arises, I’ll know to drop flax seed oil then.  See your doctor if in doubt.
