Broccoli Linked to Decreased Prostate Cancer

Researchers Victoria Kirsh, Ph.D., of Cancer Care Ontario in Toronto and her colleagues investigated a possible connection between consuming more cruciferous vegetables, specifically broccoli, and cancer risk overall. Their results indicated a larger intake of dark green and cruciferous vegetables, especially broccoli, was associated with decreased risk of aggressive prostate cancer.

To make the most of your fresh broccoli purchases, use the florets in your salads and use the stalk in your juice. A great recipe is a few carrots, an apple, 1/4 to 1/2 stalk broccoli and a stalk of celery.
