Could flaxseed minimize the risk of developing mesothelioma?

| Jul 12, 2019 | Uncategorized |

As you have probably experienced, those who suffer from mesothelioma may need to undergo chemotherapy, radiation or surgery. And while there may be treatments available to help ease the symptoms of the disease, there remains no cure.

However, in addition to medical approaches to treating disease, many people experience some relief from natural sources. And researchers continue exploring the potential impact flaxseeds may have on mesothelioma.

What are the health properties of flaxseeds?

More research is necessary to prove how flaxseeds could affect mesothelioma in humans. Still, many medical professionals suggest flaxseeds have a variety of beneficial properties which can positively affect your body in various ways.

Studies suggest flaxseeds can help:

  • Protect the body against various forms of cancer
  • Stop the formation of new blood vessels from forming on tumors
  • Prevent the development, and disrupt the growth, of cancer cells

Flaxseeds are enriched with secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG). This provides anti-inflammatory and “cancer chemopreventive” properties.

When tested in mice, the presence of SDG resulted in lessened inflammation. And researchers suggest that flaxseeds may also contain properties to prevent malignant mesothelioma.

How do flaxseeds affect the human body?

To date, there is no known evidence that flaxseeds either prevent or cure inflammatory diseases in humans. And there is insufficient research on whether flaxseeds could prevent the growth of mesothelioma tumors.

Researchers continue their efforts to find a cure. Meanwhile, you can minimize your carbohydrate intake, exercise and increase the number of fruits and vegetables in your diet.

Making healthy lifestyle choices, including incorporating flaxseeds, can help you reduce the inflammation in your body. As such, you can reduce your risk of chronic inflammation, which could lead to mesothelioma.
