Broccoli – An Anti-Cancer Food

Is Broccoli An Anti-Cancer Food?

Much interest in cancer prevention is focused on cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower. Broccoli contains indoles, including sulphuraphane, an isothiocyanate that seems to inhibit breast tumours.

Broccoli also contains glucosinolates, which, when consumed along with the necessary enzyme to break them down (which is in the broccoli itself) , have been shown to reduce the risk of prostate, breast, lung and colorectal cancer.

By weight, fresh broccoli, boiled and drained, has 16% more vitamin C than an orange, roughly as much calcium as milk, a significant amount of iron, and the stalk is high in fibre.

Power Combination: combine Broccoli with Brazil nuts or walnuts, eggs, soya beans or seafoodbecause the addition of selenium greatly increases the cancer fighting properties of the broccoli.

Power Combination: combine broccoli with tomatoes. Tomatoes are a potent source of lycopene. When lycopene was combined with the glycosinolates in broccoli, animal studies showed a tomato/broccoli combination was able to reduce tumour size by up to 52%. Be sure to include a little bit of cold-pressed olive oil, to help with the digestion of lycopene because it is fat-soluble and needs the oil to help your body absorb it.

Finally, whilst I would always prefer you to get your nutrition from your diet, it isn’t always practical or possible.  So I also keep a stock of supplements containing the most powerful active ingredients in broccoli.  Jarrow Formulas Broccomax is a good supplement, and you can search Amazon for Broccomax here.

About Christopher C. Evans

1 in 3 of us will get cancer within our lifetimes, yet 85% of cancer is preventable. My book, Cancer Uncensored, tells you how. It shows what connects the people who DON'T get cancer, and what connects those who survive it. It even includes an A to Z of anti-cancer superfoods which have been shown to kill cancer cells. This is information your doctor isn't even ALLOWED to tell you about.

But it isn't just about cancer, I lost 32 lbs putting the information into practice because I uncovered 5 critical factors for quick weight loss without exercise.
