Even flexitarians might be at increased risk for developing arthritis.
It just got compared to the leading pharmacological treatment for enlarged prostates: the standard drug costs about $300 a year, versus about $10 a year of daily flax. This new study found they both worked just as well as each other, so, I guess it all comes down to side effects. Of which there are many for tamsulosin, headaches, dizziness, diarrhea, and all sorts of abnormal things. Flax also has a number of side-effects, though. It improves your cholesterol and blood sugar, controls your blood pressure. and controls your hot flashes, though usually not a huge problem in prostate sufferers…
It may even help with arthritis: “Fish, seal, and flaxseed oils lessen joint pain.” So, it looks like you have another choice! You can kill and grind up her... You can kill and grind up him... Or, you can kill and grind up this… Uh, the horror!
