While both cottage cheese and flaxseed are both very nutritional on their own, the combination of the two are believed by some to contain extremely powerful healing properties. Some specialists, like the German bio-chemist Johanna Budwig, believe it can even cure cancer. Now to be clear, the data that stems from this claim is straight out of the 1950’s, as is the Budwig diet itself. Today, the Budwig diet is not recommended as a treatment for cancer. However, the combination of cottage cheese and flaxseed may still prove worthy for cancer patients as well as all of us.
