More good news for flaxseed eaters. Researchers at Duke say that the little jewels "stunt the growth of prostate tumors."
Earlier studies showed that men who took flaxseeds along with a low fat diet experienced shrinkage in prostate tumors. This study demonstrated that taking the flaxseeds alone shrunk the tumors. Therefore, it's the flax. Just the flax, ma'am.
I have had a small jar of capers in my pantry for at least a year. So I was excited when I ran across this article touting that they are "...an unexpectedly big souce of natural antioxidants that show promise for fighting cancer and heart disease..."

It has long been suspected that eating protein induces a feeling of satiety. I noticed 20 years ago that diet specialty foods from Jennie Craig always had added protein. Protein's suspected ability to make the dinner feel full is probably the key to the success of the Atkins (low carb). Eating protein, many concluded, makes you feel full and you eat less.
An outstanding source of protein is the humble chicken egg. It's a well balanced protein and can be refined from accompanying saturated fats by separating the white from the yolk. The yolk is where the fat is.

Researchers at the Society for Integrative Oncology recently found a potential new use for the virtuous little seeds. Two tablespoons per day cut the incidence of hot flashes in half in menopausal women. The researchers noted that the sample size in their experiment was small and more work needs to be done.
