    ..We did not observe an association between enterolignans and NFκB. In conclusion, flaxseed-derived enterolignans may hinder cancer cell proliferation via VEGF-associated pathways...

    ..Differences in body composition and fat distribution do not appear to be significant factors in explaining lower adiponectin and higher leptin in AA women...

    PLoS ONE 7:e53104. 2012
    ..This study provides evidence that prostatic ALA, independent of the amount of ALA consumed, is positively associated with biomarkers of aggressive prostate cancer and that genetic variation may modify this relationship...

    ..We conclude that weight loss with or without exercise could lower the risk for cancer through changes in serum that result in reduced cellular mitogenicity...
