    I noticed everyone mentioned the benefits of flax oils, but I found some information leading to increased chances of breast and prostate cancer. Anyone done any research on this and have an opinion? Something about the ALA content in the oil.

    It's better to take fish oil because ALA found in flax is not easily transformed and used by the body but it's still better than using margarine.
    Polyinsaturated fats tend to oxydize quite rapidly though, that might be a problem, but I've never heard something bad on non-oxydized polyinsaturated fatty acid.

    Just about anything, in large enough quantities, can cause cancer. Do you want to go around worrying about every little thing? I think flax oil is the least of your worries.
