Is flax oil estrogenic?

I’ve always been advised to take flax because it’ll help increase my testosterone levels, and it a nice anabolic addition to a healthy diet. T-mag’s “Fat roundtable” advocates for flax oil consumption, too. But there’s a curious “women’s health” article at another site which states, “Besides the many benefits of seed and nut derived oils, flax oil, in particular, has one other special property. The oil is estrogenic and can attach itself to the estrogen receptors in the cells.”
