Other general names of flaxseed are linseed, lint bells, and linum. In Scientific/medical term, it’s typically called Linum usitatissimum. Flax is an annual plant cultivated for its fiber, which is employed in making linen. Flaxseed and its oil are utilized in herbal remedies.
Flaxseed and its oil have been supported since the 1950s as a dietary nutrient with anticancer properties. The majority of the evidence of its aptitude to put off cancer from taking place or rising has derived from a small number of studies in animals. Only lately has there been some evidence advocating that flaxseed supplements in conjunction with low-fat diets might be helpful in men with early stage prostate cancer. Controlled clinical studies are required to discover if it is helpful in preventing or treating cancer in humans.
Lately, concentration has focused on the flaxseed itself, which is a prosperous basis of lignans, compounds that could run as antiestrogens or as weak estrogens, which can be a factor in preventing estrogen-dependent cancers, like breast cancer, and other cancers. Canadian scientists utter a common seed is proving unusually good at assisting women fight breast cancer. A new Canadian study demonstrates the flax could considerably slow the rate of breast cancer cell development.
Flaxseed is available in flour, meal, and seed form. It might be discovered in a number of multi-grain breads, cereals, breakfast bars, in addition to muffins. The toasted seeds are at times mixed into bread dough or sprinkled over salads, yogurt, or cereal. Flaxseed meal could be applied likewise. Flaxseed oil is obtainable in lots of health food stores in liquid form and is sometimes combined into cottage cheese. The oil is existing in softgel capsules as well.
Flaxseeds have two anticancer components: lignans and an omega-3 fat called “alphalinolenic acid” (ALA). You might be acquainted with flaxseeds as they are employed as a natural laxative, a good source of dietary fiber and in preparations that assist let down your cholesterol. Flaxseeds might be useful in decreasing your risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, breast and endometrial cancers too. Flaxseed oil has been employed for the relief of hot flashes, breast pain, arthritis pain, and pain connected to constipation.
If you’re taking flaxseed as a laxative, drink ample of water to keep away from constipation or intestinal obstruction, as the seeds develop as long as digestion. Your body requires time to absorb the parts of flaxseed, consequently wait a while prior to taking any other supplements or medications. Keep away from flaxseed oil if you are sensitive to to flax or if you are pregnant or nursing. If you’ve had estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer, employ flaxseed products in moderation.

Image by wallygrom From Wikipedia - Cuscuta (Dodder) is a genus of about 100-170 species of yellow, orange or red (rarely green) parasitic plants. Formerly treated as the only genus in the family Cuscutaceae, recent genetic research by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group has shown that it is correctly placed in the morning glory family, Convolvulaceae. The genus is found throughout the temperate to tropical regions of the world, with the greatest species diversity in subtropical and tropical regions; the genus becomes rare in cool temperate climates, with only four species native to northern Europe. Old folk names include devil's guts, devil's hair, devil's ringlet, goldthread, hailweed, hairweed, hellbine, love vine, pull-down, strangleweed, angel hair, and witch's hair. Dodder can be identified by its thin stems appearing leafless, with the leaves reduced to minute scales. From mid-summer to early autumn, the vines can produce small fruit that take the same color as the vine, and are approximately the size of a common pea. It has very low levels of chlorophyll; some species such as Cuscuta reflexa can photosynthesize slightly, while others such as C. europaea are entirely dependent on the host plants for nutrition. Dodder flowers range in color from white to pink to yellow to cream. Some flower in the early summer, others later, depending on the species. The seeds are minute and produced in large quantities. They have a hard coating, and can survive in the soil for 5–10 years or more. Dodder seeds sprout at or near the surface of the soil. While dodder germination can occur without a host, it has to reach a green plant quickly; dodder grows toward the smell of nearby plants. If a plant is not reached within 5 to 10 days of germination, the dodder seedling will die. Before a host plant is reached, the dodder, as other plants, relies on food reserves in the embryo; the cotyledons, though present, are vestigial. Parasitism After a dodder attaches itself to a plant, it wraps itself around it. If the host contains food beneficial to dodder, the dodder produces haustoria that insert themselves into the vascular system of the host. The original root of the dodder in the soil then dies. The dodder can grow and attach itself to multiple plants. In tropical areas it can grow more or less continuously, and may reach high into the canopy of shrubs and trees; in temperate regions it is an annual plant and is restricted to relatively low vegetation that can be reached by new seedlings each spring. Dodder is parasitic on a very wide variety of plants, including a number of agricultural and horticultural crop species, such as alfalfa, lespedeza, flax, clover, potatoes, chrysanthemum, dahlia, helenium, trumpet vine, ivy and petunias, among others. Dodder ranges in severity based on its species and the species of the host, the time of attack, and whether any viruses are also present in the host plant. By debilitating the host plant, dodder decreases the ability of plants to resist virus diseases, and dodder can also spread plant diseases from one host to another if it is attached to more than one plant. A report published in Science (Vol 313; Sept. 29, 2006) by Runyon, Mescher, and De Moraes, researchers at Penn State University, demonstrates that dodder use airborne (volatile) chemical cues to locate their host plants. Seedlings of Cuscuta pentagona exhibit positive growth responses to volatiles released by tomato and other species of host plants. When given a choice between volatiles released by the preferred host tomato and the non-host wheat, the parasite exhibited preferential growth toward the former. Further experiments demonstrated attraction to a number of individual compounds released by host plants and repellance by one compound released by wheat. These results do not rule out the possibility that other cues (e.g., light) may also play a role in host location. Prevention and treatment Many nations have laws prohibiting import of dodder seed, requiring crop seeds to be free of dodder seed contamination. Before planting, all clothes should be inspected for dodder seed when moving from an infested area to a non-infested crop. When dealing with an infested area, swift action is necessary. Recommendations include planting a non-host crop for several years after the infestation, pulling up host crops immediately, particularly before the dodder produces seed, and use of preemergent herbicides like Dacthal in the spring. Examples of non-host crops include grasses and many other monocotyledons. If dodder is found before it chokes a host plant, it may be simply removed from the soil. If choking has begun, the host plant must be pruned significantly lower than the dodder, as dodder is versatile and can grow back if present from haustoria.
