I like and agree with your approach. No single food, vitamin or potion has ever been the 'answer' for me. Rather a healthy balanced diet, a balanced approach to life including a healthy lifestyle and stress management have been the formula for me. I have been advised to stay away from flaxseed due to side effects by my homeopathic Dr.

As an engineer who has dealt with complex systems with multiple variables for 40+ years my guess is the authors of the French Fry study have found correlation but not causality.  To conduct this study properly one should have a random (age, gender, BMI, etc) group to whom you randomly assigned consumption of either French Fries or, say, an equal caloric amount of boiled potatoes and followed their health for perhaps 10 years.  Otherwise, all the cofactors will make finding causality impossible.  They touch on this by recognizing that eating French Fries likely correlates with other factors like more general unhealthy esting.  So, I'll categorize this as pseudo science aimed at a 'political' agenda.

Amen!  Another undoubtably poorly conducted study to prove the authors bias.

We eat an organic plant based diet - nothing with a mother or a face. It is delicious and hopefully a healthy choice. Would never go back to eating the SAD diet, we do not take any Rx and grateful for that.

I don't remember it, but I have been told that my first non-baby food snack was a french fry. I am now 75 years old and I ain't dead yet! I am convinced that one day some "scientist" is going to come out with a study that states oxygen is deadly!

Flaxseed meal has been the best health food staple in my kitchen. Over the years I have discovered so many ways to include it in my meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks); whether I'm baking, juicing, sautéing, grilling, roasting, etc., flaxseed meal always adds flavor and never disappointes my tastebuds!

Menopause has been barely a blip on my health radar-thankfully.

At 60, I'm still waiting for the hot flashes to attack.  After testing my estrogen levels,  my doctor suggested that I may not have the same experiences that other women in my family are going through.  Whew...I hope that proves to be true.

 

 


@Calhounwoman Oh do let us know how that goes! I'm 58 and out of menopause already, and I didn't use flaxseed meal --though I would have had I known it would reduce hot flashes. Instead I made motherwort tincture. That stopped heart palpitations and hot flashes in seconds.

 

 

 

DH used flaxseed more than me: he adds it to everything.
