The relationship between Linseed oil and Cancer is weak. Linseed oil ranks 699 of 1224 Cancer treatments on our list.

Cancer /ˈkænsər/, also known as a malignant tumor, is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Not all tumors are cancerous; benign tumors do not spread to other parts of the body. Possible signs and symptoms include: a new lump, abnormal bleeding, a prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss, and a change in bowel movements, among others. While these symptoms may indicate cancer they may also occur due to other issues. There are over 100 different known cancers that affect humans.

Linseed oil Linseed oil, also known as flaxseed oil is a colourless to yellowish oil obtained from the dried, ripened seeds of the flax plant (Linum usitatissimum, Linaceae). The oil is obtained by pressing, sometimes followed by solvent extraction. Flax-based oils are sought after as food because of their high levels of α-Linolenic acid (a particular form of omega-3 fatty acid), but it is important that only food-grade oil be used for food. Boiled linseed oil is heated and treated with chemicals that make it unfit for human consumption.

Researchers have concluded:

  • Prebiotics have protective effect and may be the useful candidate agents for colon cancer prevention and treatment. The application of selected bioactive food components supported the effect of prebiotics (Tab. 2, Fig. 1, Ref. 16). Full Text in free PDF www.bmj.sk.1

Strength of evidence

Linseed oil for Cancer ranks in the bottom 16% of condition-treatment relationships we analyzed.

Importantly, we found 4 studies that were randomized and controlled. Such studies are considered the most rigorous, and help to establish or disprove a cause-and-effect relationship between prospective treatments and conditions. So there may be some good evidence on which to make a decision about using Linseed oil for Cancer.

Amount of research

The relationship between Cancer and Linseed oil has been modestly researched. We found 19 relevant research articles on the topic. This places the volume of research in the bottom 33% of condition-treatment relationships we analyzed.
