Flaxseeds: Protecting Bones and Breasts By Jonny Bowden, PhD, CNS
Flaxseeds may very well be one of nature’s wonderfoods. For one thing, phytoestrogens, which are abundant in flaxseeds, have been shown to exert hormonal effects that may affect chronic diseases. And research reveals that they could help protect both breasts and bones.
In one study (published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition), postmenopausal women supplemented their diets with either a placebo, soy, or ground flaxseed for 16 weeks. After the 16 weeks, the flaxseed group - and no other - had a significantly higher ratio of 2-hydroxyesterone to 16-hydroxyesterone, which can potentially protect against breast cancer. Also, despite the previously held belief that this hormone ratio leads to decreased bone density (a precursor to osteoporosis), the researchers found that the higher concentration of 2-hydroxyesterone did not have a negative effect on bones.
Make sure you buy cold-milled, 100 percent organic flaxseeds. One reliable brand is Barlean’s Forti-Flax, widely available in stores.

It’s Good to Know: Another Reason to Avoid TV... Even If You’re in the Hospital
Infections acquired by patients while they’re in the hospital are estimated by the New England Journal of Medicine to cause 90,000 deaths a year and cost $9.5 billion in medical bills. One of the culprits? The TV remote controls in patients’ rooms.
A recent study by University of Arizona researchers found that the remote control in a hospital room is the item that carries the most disease-causing bacteria (including drug-resistant strains), trumping the toilet and faucet handles, bathroom door, and other more obvious suspects. The study recommends the widespread use of disposable remote controls to protect patients during their hospital stays.
