A study published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry lends further support to the already compelling evidence that a medicinal ingredient found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables (cabbage,cauliflower,Bok choy,Brussels sprouts,turnips) exerts significant anti-cancer effects.

This study showed that sulforaphane exerted a key epigenetic effect that greatly inhibited human prostate cancer cells from forming colonies. But many other cancers are linked to the same epigenetic switch, suggesting that sulforaphane may also provide protection against brain,lung,colon,breast, and stomach cancer,as well as chronic lymphocytic lukemia.
