If you are not already convinced that broccoli is good for you, try this on for size. According to researchers at the University of Pittsburg Cancer Institute, in partnership with the University of Pittsburg Medical Center, compounds derived from plant-based sources - including garlic, broccoli, and medicinal plants - confer protective effects against breast cancer. Men, listen up! Breast cancer in men is not as common as in women, but it is a reality.
Specifically, researchers are identifying specific compounds found in these plants and are trying to understand the molecular mechanisms by which they work against breast cancer. The idea is then to use the specific compounds in development of specific drugs to prevent and fight cancer.
So you don’t like broccoli or Brussels sprouts or cabbage - how about routinely including some of the following in your diet: watercress, bok choy, arugula, collard greens, horseradish, kale, radishes, rutabaga, turnips, wasabi?
Don’t wait for a specific drug to be released - it may be too late. Take control of your health right now!
