Flax Oil Health Scares not credible!

I submitted this response to Dr. Mercola' website today regarding his assumption that flax oil would be covered by an article regarding the risks of dietary ALA. For more information on this issue, please see this article: http://www.udoerasmus.com/articles/udo/flax_prostate.htm My submission to Mercola.com regarding his posting: http://www.mercola.com/2004/jul/21/flax_seed_oil.htm Your headline is misleading. In the article in question: http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/full/80/1/204/T1 it appears that you extrapolated the conclusion to include flax oil without any documentation in the study data, since flax was not listed as one of the major sources of ALA.
