Cancer Fighting Foods – Broccoli

According to a study published by the National Cancer Institute in 1992, a researcher from Johns Hopkins University discovered broccoli to be one of the best cancer fighting foods.

The research revealed there was a special compound in broccoli and it was responsible for reducing the size of cancer cells by nearly 75%. It was also found to prevent the development of cancer by nearly 60%.

Aside from this special compound, broccoli also contains vitamin C, fiber, calcium, vitamin K, beta-carotene and much more. It is also an amazing source of iron for everyone (especially, vegans, who sometimes have challenges here).

Broccoli also contains sulforaphane which scientific studies have shown to be effective against a specific bacterium that is a common cause of gastric ulcers and gastric cancer.

Also, smokers under the age of 65 are encouraged to indulge in a cup of broccoli a day as studies have shown it to help battle colon cancer cells as well.
