Fruity Flaxseed Muffins These moist and high-flavor flax muffins are not only good for you, but they taste great too. Ingredients: 1/2 cup crushed pineapple with juice, canned; 1/2 cup finely chopped apples (with peel) 2 tablespoons canola oil; 1 large egg, higher omega-3 if available, beaten lightly; 2 egg whites (or 1/4 cup egg substitute). Flaxseed is one of the world’s most powerful superfoods. Not only has it been shown to reduce the risk of cancer, stroke, heart disease, and diabetes, it.

Ground flaxseed will go rancid in as little as a week if left at room temperature due to the oxidation. Storage & Preparation. Flaxseed can be found for purchase as either whole or ground flaxseed (also called mille flaxseed or flaxseed meal).

Buying whole flax seeds can be more cost-effective and will help them keep longer. Flax seeds are teensy tiny nutritional powerhouses. They’re absolutely packed with fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, antioxidants, and cancer-fighting lignans. The lignans in flaxseed help prevent plaque buildup in the arteries by as much as 75%.

Cancer – studies have shown, according to the NIH, that lignans help protect against breast, prostate and colon cancer, interfering with the growth and spread of tumors. Scientists warn too much of ‘superfood’ porridge topping flaxseed ‘could cause cyanide poisoning’ Flaxseed contains a compound that can produce cyanide gas as it degrades. Fibre: Excellent for colon health, flaxseed is bursting with fibre! Blood pressure: Kelley C. Fitzpatrick, director of health and nutrition with the Flax Council of Canada (WebMd), suggests that new research shows blood pressure lowering effects of the flaxseed. She goes on to say that this may be due to the omega 3 content found in flaxseed.

One of the key healthy components of flaxseed is the high amount of omega-3 essential fatty acids in them. These are what is termed “good” fats because of their positive impact on our heart health. They are most commonly found in fish and eggs, which make flax seeds quite useful as a vegan alternative. Flaxseed contains high levels of alpha linoleic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fatty acid that is partially converted to the omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) that are mainly found in fatty fish like salmon.

Omega-3s have been shown to have incredible health benefits. Superfood Series A-Z: Flaxseed Derived from the flax plant, flaxseed can serve as a healthy supplement to any athlete’s diet. Small—about the size of a sesame seed—and nutty, the seed can be found.

List of related literature:

The brain needs optimal nourishment, especially from the omega-3 fatty acids found in cold-water fish, flax seeds, walnuts, and chia seeds; complex carbohydrates, with their slowrelease natural sugars; and antioxidants from colorful fruits and vegetables, including lots of vibrant berries, plus black and green teas.

I recently started adding at least 2 to 3 tablespoons of ground flax to my diet, typically mixing with lilys chocolate, with some macadamia nut oil and ghee, for a nice healthy keto fat bomb, and I’m almost certain the flax is the main reason my inflammation is going down.

  • Really an excellent piece of research. One of the best he’s done. Large sample size combined with a detailed explanation of the mechanics of the process. Much better than a correlation or observational study.

  • Lovely information. Thank you. You always give the pros..cons and how part and why part which is very important along with side effects. Good work..

  • The new format is not as easily viewed, because Dr. Greger interposes himself between us and the graph, chart or table, which forces them to a smaller size, in the background. Many column headings and small numbers and letters on, or near, the columns become nearly illegible, for all practical purposes. The Greger videos are good for content, if only he would recognize the focus should be on the information, not on himself. That said, if Dr. Greger always has had an urge to “star” in his own video series, I guess this is itif only the information were not forced into the background. On the tiny video stage, there is simply no room for two centers of interest.

  • I eat 2/3 c flax seeds a day in my green smoothies and going up to 1 c soon for RA. Learned this from Dr Brooke Goldner who healed herself from Lupus and helping many heal from auto-immune diseases!

  • …I am continuously hearing more and more amazing things about Bitter Apricot Kernels the more research I do, I just recently learned
    Apricot kernels contain vitamin B15 “Vitamin B15 helps in the formation of specific amino acids such as methionine. It also plays a role in the oxidation of glucose in cellular respiration and like vitamin E – it acts as an antioxidant helping to strengthen the cell. This wonderful vitamin even helps the liver detoxify the body.”
    They are Non-toxic All regular cells are 100% Protected they convert the cyanide and benzaldehyde molecules to a harmless substance called Thiocyanate. Some days I have consumed up to 20 apples if they are small in a smoothie or two Seeds included, if what most say and believe were true I should Not be standing. Yet I am thriving. I did not build up a tolerance, the second time I consumed apricot kernels I ate 25, all-in-one mouthful no ill effects Whatsoever.
    Since I started consuming B-17 my health has been improving. I eat 10 to 15 Bitter Apricot Kernels daily other than the odd day I forget, along with the Seeds of the Apple’s I consume, most days 4 to 6 Apple’s, on average.
    : )Tyler
    Something I forgot to mention cancer cells have what’s called Beta Glucosidase which leaves them Vulnerable, Unprotected! from the Cyanide and Benzaldehyde molecules within the Bitter Apricot Kernels, Appleseeds, strawberry seeds watermelon and grape seeds excetera. That is how it is able to Eradicate Cancer from the body leaving Zero scar tissue. B-17 also Prevents! cancer, B-17 much like vitamin C keeps us humans and animals alike from ending up with scurvy, when consumed in moderate amounts on a regular basis. To me it is Extremely Clear! that consuming Apricot Kernels or B-17 Amygdalin from Any source in large quantities is the Cure for cancer and in daily doses, like the old saying An Apple a day Keeps the Doctor Away, the Prevention.
    I am a Firm believer that when a person has cancer in order to Cure Correct the disease (Dis-ease) a person must consume a B-17 Amygdalin rich source such as Bitter Apricot kernels in their Whole form for maximum effectiveness, in quite large quantities along with bromelain pineapple enzyme to Aid the absorption. I do not believe the substance/derivative Laetrile is as effective Especially when administered intravenously/intramuscularly in Most cases, my opinion. Iodine also plays a Very Important Powerful role in my opinion.
    Understand cancer is a mutation of the cells-irregular cells, our bodies produce and destroy these Daily vitamin B-17 Amygdalin which we have Consumed for Millions upon Millions of years, or however long you believe we have been here Destroys! these mutations when consumed on a regular-daily basis, thus the immune system does not have to work as hard, cells are taken care of Prolonging Life, and in high doses has the ability to Wipeout even the Largest of tumors. It Really is that Simple, this information is Heavily! Suppressed.

    When someone has scurvy to correct the Deficiency they throw tons of vitamin C at it, to prevent scurvy vitamin C needs to be consumed on a regular basis. Cancer is very much the Same in my opinion, to prevent cancer you must consume vitamin B-17 on a regular basis, again we Evolved/developed with the substance therefore we need it. Truly is that Simple, when cancer develops due to Lack of consumption large quantities of vitamin B-17 Amygdalin must be consumed. This Corrects the symptom the tumor/tumors, you must also optimize your nutrition and consume vitamin B-17 Amygdalin to prevent reoccurrence, it is Extremely important to optimize your health watch the documentary (What the Health) it is available on Netflix, YouTube, it is in my playlist as well titled IMPORTANT.

    Please help me get this information out, You are more Powerful!!! than you could imagine. People need to Know.
    Be sure to check out my playlist titled (IMPORTANT!!!) all Capitals, you Will See! where I’m coming from. Though that is just the tip of the iceberg many more videos I consider to be of Great importance within my multiple other playlists if interested.
    For those interested you can access my YouTube channel by clicking on my channel photo of the Wolf Eye to the left of Tyler Murphy, of any of my comments from there go to Playlists.

    All the Best my Friend, Know! and Remember that you are more Powerful then you could even imagine. If you See as I do Please help me get this information out to others

  • Prevention & Cure for Cancer. My Mom had cancer Cured.
    This is also what is happening here in this video with the flaxseed which contain cyanide and benzaldehyde molecules ⬇
    Look up the Hunza people, among the longest living people in the world they do not develop cancer. They consume apricot kernels on a daily basis. The Hunza people are considered living proof of the health benefits of apricot kernels, based in the remote Himalayan region near West Pakistan, they are traditional apricot farmers and are believed to consume 200 times more B17 than Westerners do “about 30 to 50 apricot seeds per day”. Apricot kernels Cure and Prevent cancer, it is the amygdalin, vitamin B17 within that has this effect. Check out the documentary (G Edward Griffin a world without cancer the story of vitamin B17) I believe is the title, I have playlists on my channel. If interested let me know I will send you some links. The old saying an apple a day keeps the doctor away is True when you consume the whole Apple seeds included. Also check out the video titled (how to cure cancer with apricot kernels) muscular guy shaved head blue tank top in the thumbnail, Man in the video cured himself of bowel cancer, doctors gave him two months to live, Cured with bitter apricot kernels and bromelain which is a pineapple enzyme, digestive enzyme, he was taking 600 General, Digestive, Units, to Aid the absorption of the apricot kernels. He had No conventional treatment chemo, radiation, surgery or other treatment of any kind. He has been cancer-free for years now. Just a heads up guy makes a negative racial comment but video is worth watching.
    There are multiple! cures for cancer, Natural cures these are and have been suppressed. Google (The Australian blushwood tree). If eating seeds was harmful /deadly humankind Never Would Have Made It. Think about it, think cavemen cavewoman threw away the core: ) We evolved along with fruit fertilizing their seeds with our excrement in exchange for their nutrients, Harmony. Humans are all brainwashed this is by Design, as a child I was always told Not! to eat the core of an apple because the seeds contain cyanide, this is true but it is a Minuscule amount and it is structured in such a way not unlike Water which is two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen, harmless when together as H2O. The cyanide contained within apricot kernels and bitter almonds which use to be sold/consumed on a regular basis is Harmless to the body yet Deadly! to cancer cells, only cancer cells can unlock the cyanide and benzaldehyde molecules within the apricot kernels, Nature’s Perfect Design, normal cells are 100% protected. B-17, amygdalin, Cyanide is also in Strawberries among thousands of other fruits and vegetables but in very low concentrations thanks to GMOs and Mass farming. In my opinion B-17, amygdalin is to cancer what vitamin C is to scurvy. B-17 Cyanide is also present in many grasses and wild edibles, livestock in winter get what’s known as winter cancers/tumors when their diets are no longer grasses but mainly corn and grain, when Spring and Summer come back around they again begin grazing the fields these tumors cancers Disappear due to the cyanide B-17 amygdalin within the grass and wild edibles they consume.
    My Mom had cancer cured with apricot kernels, alkaline water and Essiac tea and lots of fresh juice, beet, carrot, celery, Apple you name it. People cure themselves of cancer all the time by switching to a raw vegan diet cancer cannot exist in an alkaline environment it cannot survive, apoptosis. Many fruits nuts and other foods contain vitamin B17, Cyanide it occurs naturally but B-17 is being bread out. Bitter apricot kernels have the highest natural concentration. The human body is amazing a tumor is the body’s way of protecting itself containing the cancer, in my playlists there is a video of a young girl who cured herself of an inoperable brain tumor a very rare cancer with a raw vegan diet.
    Silica from the bioavailable natural source Horsetail when taken orally remove aluminum from the body Reversing and Preventing Alzheimer’s and Dementia, the silica binds to the aluminum and is carried out through the kidneys and excreted. Boron/Borax Cures arthritis and also decalcifies the pineal gland, balances hormone levels while also significantly raising testosterone among many other health benefits, Google The Borax conspiracy. Chanca piedra tea eliminates/Cures and prevents kidney and gallstones, works by gelatinizing stones. The list goes on, it’s all about treating the symptom and not the cause keeping people sick and taking their money driving the numbers of the population down is the goal, at this point it is 1 in 2 for men and 1 in 3 for women will get cancer, dogs and cats that live less than 20 years on average are getting cancer nowadays this never use to happen. Think about it what do they eat our food supply is contaminated, poisoned. Scary thing is they’re making everything seedless, genetically modified
    without labels and most cannot afford to buy organic. Iodine also use to be used as a food preservative which was Beneficial for health and has Strong anticancer benefits, replaced with Bromine which causes thyroid disorders among many other negative health effects. I have Heard iodized table salt often contains 1/3 glass 1/3 sand and one third salt and is a Huge! contributor to heart attack and stroke, as the microscopic particles move through the arteries they cause micro abrasions which in turn causes plaque to form when cholesterol moves there to repair the damage done. Pink Himalayan salt is a much better choice, it also contains over 80 trace minerals that most people are deficient in. Prevention of cancer and the cure for most disease (dis-ease) is a vegan diet, raw organic is best, even if only Temporary the body must shift from acidic to alkaline, vitamin and mineral levels restored, once this takes place the body’s natural defenses are restored and the body begins to work optimally eliminating most all disease. If the body remains slightly alkaline, cancer can’t survive / grow in an alkaline environment. I have heard Vitamin B17 use to be in B complex vitamins, it was removed back in the 1970s when they realize what it can do/does/was doing, the 1970s is when the documentary above was released. I have also heard that when a Gorilla is given an apricot they will instinctively crack open the pit and consume the seed/apricot kernel within.
    Check out those two videos you’ll understand where I’m coming from, if you do watch the videos Please spread the word. People are dying Horrible Deaths families Destroyed for No! reason.
    I’am sharing what I consider to be Extremely!mportant information.
    Google (can squirrels get cancer) also try Googling (do squirrels get cancer) and (foods rich in B-17)
    You Will Understand The Connection when you do.
    Also check out on YouTube (Third update)
    Woman Cures herself of cancer with vitamin B17 Laetrile, I did the math she was taking the equivalent to roughly 50 apricot kernels daily in the form of laetrile, she was monitored by the hospital who was previously treating the cancer within her unsuccessfully.
    And also check out the documentarys (What the Health) available on Netflix and possibly YouTube and (The food Matrix 101 reasons to go vegan) available on YouTube and also (Forks Over Knives). I am Not trying to push veganism if that’s even a word, I just want you to be Aware of the amazing health benefits of a vegan diet, even if only temporary can completely reverse many different types of disease Dis-Ease type 2 diabetes for example.
    Again if you would like some links message me, I will send them to you, also anyone reading this who is interested.
    I know this all sounds to Simple But please understand and know that I have no reason to lie to you. Billions upon Billions upon Billions… of Dollars are raised and donated to cancer research Yet cancer rates continue to increase at an Extremely rapid pace.
    I personally consume, on average 4 to 6 Apple’s, seeds included and 10 to 15 dried bitter apricot kernels daily. I have consumed 25 apricot kernels all at once with no ill effect.
    Do not take my word for it, do some research.
    Please know that I am not trying to obtain subscribers that is Not at all what this is about. I have Nothing for sale.
    If you do subscribe to my channel and have trouble accessing my cancer playlist’s please notify me, I have had trouble¿ with this lately.
    I myself have personally lost a close family Friend and an Aunt to cancer, when my Mom was diagnosed with cancer I started searching frantically and luckily came across the (How to cure cancer with apricot kernels) video. After you look into this if you believe as I do Please tell as Many! people as you can about this, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube ECT, Printing information and links on Business cards, Bumper stickers, T-shirts, Printing information and links on computer Paper handing out to gas stations Ect for them to hand out, most will Gladly! do so. Once everyone understands that cancer is caused by a Vitamin Deficiency in my opinion, much the same as Scurvy we the Human race will have OUR! POWER Back and begin to fix the other things wrong with this world, for example fruit trees should be planted in Every climate that can sustain them, all parks along all Street mango trees, apple trees, peach, Apricot Etc. Food should be Free! For Everyone. As it stands now we have more than enough to go around More than once enough food for Everyone yet people are starving all over the world for No reason it’s Wrong and Disgusting! Check out the video on YouTube (Water-fuel cell inventor murdered by government) believe it or not all engines can be easily converted to run on water, water is simply Hydrogen and Oxygen. Our world is being Horribly polluted for absolutely No reason.
    Wishing You and yours & you all Perfect Health Love Happiness and a Wonderful! Journey.

    I need to go get me some Flax and a coffee grinder so I can get started STAY SAFE HEALTHY AND HAPPY

  • Thnx for the recipes but I have read..Dr. used to say that consuming flex seeds more than 3 gm a day can cause serious prblm.
    3 gm is a safe quantity.
    But the way u said lyk 2 tablespoon is not about 3 gm.
    Plz tell about that I can get rid of my confusion.
    Thanks in advance

  • Love your work!! Reading How Not TO Diet. Love it too!! Thank you for what you are giving the human race…….science based nutritional information!!

  • Always great information unfortunately the doctor sometimes mumbles important details making it completely inaudible kind of defeats the purpose

  • I believe I’m here today because I used flaxseed oil and flaxseed as a complementary part of my recovery from stage four breast cancer 20 years ago. It’s a much easier source of omega 3 than fish oil, which is harder to find organic and ethically fished (pretty much only from Norway). I grind mine in a coffee grinder each time I have them so the oil is fresh.

  • But he never adresed what amount is too much! I have been consuming 3-5 tablespoons for years now is that to much? by how much is that too much? can you and HOW do you detoxify from it?.. And so on

  • Great video format I feel like Dr Greger is lecturing to us in a classroom now; very cool. Thanks for sharing all this research with us. I have been a fan of the Nathan Pritikin program since 1977, and Dr. Greger takes the Pritikin concept and more, to the next highest level. Great job.

  • This is the same man who recommends eating chili peppers raw garlic and vinegar neat. Have no time for him even a blind man can see he is a bloody quack

  • Eating whole flaxseed causes damage to the bowels. They do not digest and get stuck in the intestines many tiny pockets..their little hook helps imbedd them.

    Don’t believe me? Those seeds are still expelling slowly days after a go well blush out.

    The ancient people’s knew very well to grind tiny seeds. And we don’t need a lot..that is a myth too.

  • I am wondering if women who don’t exercise enough are having more heart attacks because there cappilaries are shrinking from perhaps gmo foods. I would tell women err on the side caution and eat oat meal more often to clean out arteries.

  • The cyanide in flaxseed does not harm the human body on any level and neither does the cyanide found in apple seeds which can be juiced along with the apple. In fact, it actually works to cause the elimination of cancerous and precancerous cells by causing them to die but has no effect on healthy cells.
    Phytoestrogen in soy or flaxseed have no estrogenic effect in the human body. They actually work to prevent cancer by effectively blocking out bad estrogen. Flaxseed should be organic and packaged for direct consumption and ground as needed. You can grind it in a coffee grinder or blender. To get the benefits the flaxseeds must be ground. Keeping it in a very cool dry space until ground and eat the ground flaxseeds right away. Storing pre-ground flaxseeds in the fridge is an option for shorter periods of time. Chew and swallow with juice or water or add to smoothies. 2 tablespoons twice a day. They are loaded with omega-3 which serves also to protect the body from heart disease and things like degeneration of the eyes especially in concert with lutein.

  • Dear sister i am diagnosed with pcos.dr told me to reduce weight. In your diet palns i am following contains flex seeds. Now problem is that many of sites also claiming flex seed increase yor estrogen level. You tell me should i use it further. Sorry for my english.waiting for yor suggestion

  • As someone who’s had a regular cycle my entire life I was bewildered when I began to skip periods, have intense hot flashes periodically and My emotions became slightly erratic. I thought at the young age of 33 I was having perimenopausal symptoms. It was so intense I had tests performed and ultra sound on my ovaries. Everything was normal except for my estrogen levels were through the roof. Because I avoid all soy and maintain an excellent clean, whole foods diet, I was surprised to see elevated estrogen. After doing my own research I discovered that soy, a well known phytoestrogen, was not the record holder. Freshly ground flax, to which I had began adding to my daily smoothies, was the #1 phytoestrogen. I removed Flax from my diet and all my symptoms were gone by my next cycle. I’m back to my regular cycle, no more hot flashes, sound sleep, and I have regained control of the roller coaster of emotions I was experiencing. FYI for those out there. Flax is a Fabulous nutrient and chock full of omega-3 FAs but may seriously disrupt hormone levels -women AND men. And let’s not forget developing children…
    Women who ARE experiencing menopausal symptoms and decreased estrogen, flaxseed would be an excellent alternative to HRT or even soy.

  • Very nutritious mix of omegas and protein David:) Tim slurped that one down in milliseconds! lol! He loves Wednesdays when we usually record our Thirsty Thursdays and Smoothie Saturdays extra treats! lol! _/\_ Melissa

  • I drank this yesterday and within 40 min I had to use the restroom, it was awesome. I am also drinking it as I watch this video right now.

  • I have a generic question about anti-inflammatory (and anti-oxidant) foods: can an excessive intake of such foods be harmful?
    Inflammation is one of the way our body defends itself against external threats, so can anti-inflammatory foods in high amount weaken such natural function?

  • Here’s the problem with looking at nutrition based only on scientific research. Flax seeds, along with chia seeds and raw nuts give me severe allergies. So bad in fact that my eyes feel pressure from the sinus mucus behind them. The point is nutrition needs to be wholistic. Humans didn’t grow up eating seeds, nuts and legumes. They grew up eating vegetables, fish, and meat. I understand and do not want to kill anymore animals, but there are little alternatives. The amino acids in vegetable proteins are no complete. One would need to include all sorts of nuts, legumes and seeds to make it happen. Fish, while high in mercury does supply this need. Red meat is just not an option anyway because of the amount of toxicity it puts into the body. It installs more negative free radical destructive agents than protein. Yet it depends because someone who just had heart surgery must eat red meat in order to heighten red blood cells. And what about the fact that the genetic ethnic componet (I refer to ethnic in the sense of being from a particular group but more importantly a region, none of that racist crap most human beings are obsessed with). What our ancestors ate influences how our bodies react to foods. This is all essential and important. The latest research is only a part of the whole

  • I’m a bit confused can someone tell me will I have to roast and grind or direct grind raw and consume which is the right way?
    Some nutritional specialist says that the flax seed should be roast first then consume and the other says you’ve to consume it raw grained with roasting

  • I preordered a copy of “How not to diet” and it came yesterday! I’m so excited to read it! I’m only on page 42, but already so much great information! Thank you Dr Greger!

  • Flaxseed…hhhhhh…. the cyanide content has never been an issue for me… I take cyanocobalamin (B12) daily, that contains it. My concern is for Flaxseed’s propensity to draw cadmium from the soil, much like tea draws fluoride, and that it’s grown primarily on cadmium containing soils. The cadmium question is never addressed.. yet we hear about arsenic in rice, cyanide in Flax. When the elephant in the room is cadmium! Wish Dr. G would tackle this question.��

  • Excellent and super convenient recipe
    Just a query, can i consume this during my fasting ( intermittent) period ie one hour before I go to bed?

  • Being post-menopausal, phyto-estrogens are helpful. Women absorb calcium in the presence of estrogen. So you go into the negative on calcium if you are still a meat eater, whatever helps to shepherd calcium into the bones, is definitely a plus. I’m not referring to calcium pills as our bodies are not designed to absorb nutrition except via plants. One plant-food works with another like ground flaxseed and eating kale: healed my ankle which was broken and had not healed within 2 years.

    I am glad I finally found out what to do. What the MDs tell you unless they are plant-based, you can just about throw that advice out the window.

  • I would like to see Dr. Greger talk about the effect of soy and flax seed on testosterone levels in men. Is there an amount that is safe? If so, what is it?

  • Hi mam since asked for any other receipe in adding flax seeds I am just sharing this I used to add flax seeds in my regular idly podi and my porridge also it will go nice with both the dishes

  • Can you explain why flax seed in my diet and flaxseed oil topically would cause me to blow a left inguinal hernia (way back in November 2008 to present).
    I found a specific report in German and/ or English but then it got erased and couldn’t Relocate it.

    I stopped my Whole flax study out of fear due to the strong correlation to the blow-up and out of the groin and intestine but need to safely reconsider flax as an inexpensive, nutrition item I can possibly include to lower costs and increase my sources of nutrients.

    I need to include two other strong antagonists to my health such as the seafood at Verdi’s where I worked and that my water bottle had been tampered with and could have been poisoned.

  • I just know that for me personally I get HORRIBLE hot flashes and anxiety from both flax and soy. Even the very same day, just a couple of hours after eating it. I eat some tofu anyways at times and take the heat, so to speak. �� But I really can’t eat either flax or soy on a regular basis.

  • I eat a plant based low fat diet, juice greens in the morning eat lots of nuts and seeds. I recently had a thermography where my breasts showed I was estrogen dominant. I was told not to eat flax. I eat no soy so this was the only other possible culprit.

  • Microwave Flax Muffins: 1/4 ground flaxseed; 1/2 ts baking powder; 1/2 ts cinnamon; 1 egg = mix in cup and microwave for 1 minute. Delicious. are flaxseed more helpful than the egg is harmful??

  • Wait so this thing called Arachadonic acid comes pre formed in animal products �� and promotes inflammation indicated in aging and the development of cardiovascular disease? Eeeeek, no thank you ������

  • Bless you, dr. Greger, for informing Americans about the truth. Americans are in a death grip by the pharmaceutical industry, bolstered buy our greedy politicians, and we Americans need to find the truth about how so many diseases can be prevented or treated with a plant-based diet. you are wonderful! Keep up the good work!

  • Unfortunately flax is not good for males. New studies out of the university of Sydney and Harvard have found that flaxseed raises cortisol levels. They also have found cortisol is a testosterone blocker and that there is no decrease in testosterone in males as we age as previously thought. Cortisol levels rise as we get older with added stress in our lives, as cortisol is a stress hormone. Not consuming flax is a very good idea if you are male and are struggling or are showing signs of what you might think is decreased testosterone levels.

  • What about DHA/EPA? I just noticed there is no longer Omega-3s recommendation in Daily dozen app. Do we receive all we need by eating flaxseeds?

    UPD: alright here is what I found in “what’s new in daily dozen app”:

    Per Dr. Greger’s recommendation we have removed DHA as a required supplement. Vitamin D was removed considering not everyone needs it, just those not getting adequate sun exposure
