Did you that innovative research to prevent breast cancer is happening in Kansas City? In 2010, the University of Kansas Cancer Center researcher Carol Fabian, MD, a leader in the area of breast cancer prevention, received a $4.5 million Promise Grant from Susan G. Komen for the Cure to investigate whether an estrogen found in flax seed - a commonly used supplement - can reduce the risk of breast cancer.
Secoisolariciresinol diglycoside (SDG) is a weak plant estrogen, but its highest concentration is found in flax seed. Dr. Fabian, along with a team of researchers at the University of Texas-Austin are studing whether SDG can be used as a prevention strategy for pre-menopausal women at high risk for developing breast cancer. The study is currently being conducted at several universities across the country.
