Fight breast pain with flax

In one recent study, adding 3 tablespoons of ground flax to their daily diet eased breast soreness for one in three women within 12 weeks.  Scientists credit flax’s phytoestrogens, natural plant compounds that prevent the estrogen spikes that can trigger breast pain.  More good news: You don’t have to be a master baker to sneak this healthy seed into your diet.  Just sprinkle ground flax on oatmeal, yogurt, applesauce or add it to smoothies and veggie dips.
