Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With recent research suggesting that it can help reduce the risk of heart disease, prevent and/or fight cancer, and lower cholesterol levels, flaxseed has been in the nutritional news lately. Magee, a contributor to WebMD.com and Women's Day and Parenting magazines, takes a balanced look at the possible benefits of this tiny seed and offers 80 easy and healthful recipes featuring it (just one to two tablespoons is the recommended "daily dose").
