  • what a fuckseed

  • That's cool that the omega is not destroyed from baking. I made a pumpkin dessert with a lot of flaxseed meal in it for Easter. It turned out to be the best dessert I ever made. I also took the pumpkin seeds from the pumpkin, ground them into a paste in my Vitamix, & mixed them into the dessert along with raw sunflower meal, powdered milk, eggs, chocolate, raw honey, and organic blue agave. I baked it for 45 minutes at 325. It was outstanding. I topped it with Breyer's French vanilla ice cream.

  • Cool! I've been washing my hair and skin with flaxseed soft soap for some time now, and it has made both my hair and skin super soft and smooth. I guess it works externally as well as internally.

  • Dr Greger, could you talk about black seed? Is it a vegan replacement for omega 3's??
