caution about using chia seeds

Chia seeds are increasingly becoming recommended for inclusion in alternative treatment of cancer.  While consumption of chia seeds can greatly boost energy and provide some essential nutrients that are effective in fighting cancer, people should use great caution in trying them.  For some people, especially the elderly, chia can lower blood pressure to very dangerous levels.   Also, chia is an extremely potent source of vitamin B-17;  those who are already on a B-17 regimen should add chia seeds with caution, so as not to overload their system with this phytonutrient.  And anyone who has had an undesirable reaction to B-17 definitely should avoid chia seeds and products that contain chia.
