Abstract: <b>Paper/Pulp-</b>Bhindi or Lady's finger(Hibiscus esculentus Linn.) is a major agricultural crop in India and is well-known as vegetable. The stem of the harvested plant is mostly wasted or used as fuel in villages.<br><br> <b>Therapeutics-</b>Under new discoveries, the CNN recently reported that flaxseed, Linum usitatissimum Linn. (Linseed, Hindi — Alsi) is proving to be effective in treating prostate cancer. The study reported in Neurology Journal found that limiting dietary fat to 20 per cent of calories while eating three heaping tablespoons of freshly ground flaxseed every day can significantly slow down prostate cancer growth. They can be mixed with water, any fruit or vegetable juice. They can be added to salads, soups, yoghurt, cereals and even baked goods. Flaxseed and flaxseed oil should be kept refrigerated
