Both flaxseed oil and seed lignans reduce breast cancer tumors in NIH Government study, which was better?

 A study conducted at The Department of Nutritional Sciences, University of Toronto wanted to see which component of flaxseed combined with Tamoxifen (TAM), was more effective in reducing growth in breast cancer tumors, lignans from seeds (SDG) or Flaxseed Oil (FO). The study was published by the US National Institute of Health and the link is at the bottom of this page. The study was done on mice with breast cancer tumors induced over a period of 8 weeks. The control for the study was Tamoxifen alone.

The Results

 All treatments reduced the growth of TAM-treated tumors by reducing cell proliferation, expression of genes, and proteins involved in the ER- and growth factor-mediated signaling pathways with FO having the greatest effect in increasing apoptosis compared with TAM treatment alone. SDG and FO reduced the growth of TAM-treated tumors but FO was more effective.

So add another plus in the column for flaxseed oil as a food every woman should be adding to the diet daily. And another validation to Dr Johanna Budwigs work since the 1950's.
