Cancer Fighting Super Veggies

There are veggies that are good for you and then there are cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, leafy greens, and cauliflower that according to researchers can likely help prevent breast and prostate cancer.

Researchers at Vanderbilt University’s Ingram Center showed a diet rich in  cruciferous vegetables — specifically the indoles they contain — protects and  improves breast cellular health.

“Indoles are organic compounds that have a positive impact on cellular  health. One in particular, diindolylmethane has been shown to support the immune  system and help keep hormones in balance, particularly estrogen,” the  researchers said. “In the body, estrogen gets broken down into a variety of  metabolites, some of which promote healthy cells. Unfortunately, others can  cause problems. Diindolylmethane  has been shown to help the body produce  beneficial estrogen metabolites with anti-oxidative effects.”

Certain estrogen metabolites, which have been associated with obesity,  chemical exposure and other causes, have been shown to derail cellular healthy,  but diindolylmethane has proven to increase the good kind of hormone metabolites  and decrease the kind that can challenge health, the study said.

Breast, prostate and other areas of hormone-related cellular health depend on  this delicate balance, the study said.

    Going back to staying with raw foods is always best.
