Resveratrol for Breast Cancer

A new study reported the effect of phytoestrogens on cell growth, cell cell cycle and cell death in estrogen positive breast cancer cells. Not only did resveratrol reduce specific oncogene growth factors and cause cell death (Bcl2/Bax ratio), it also down-regulated NF-Kappa B. The authors concluded that resveratrol could be a good candidate for HRT and chemopreventation.

Flaxseed oil and osteoporosis (EurekAlert)

Animal studies suggest that adding flaxseed oil to the diet could reduce the risk of osteoporosis in post-menopausal women and women with diabetes, according to a report to be published in the International Journal of Food Safety, Nutrition and Public Health.

The team concludes that diabetes has a more pronounced effect on bone health than ovariectomy and so may suggest that diabetes in post-menopausal women may also be a greater risk factor for osteoporosis than the decline in sex hormones associated with the menopause. However, their results suggest that flaxseed oil has a beneficial effect on bone mineral density and reduces markers associated with osteoporosis, suggesting that this dietary supplement could be beneficial to women with diabetes in reducing their risk of osteoporosis.
