Brassica Vegetables or Cruciferous Vegetables like broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, collard greens, kohlrabi, mustard greens, wasabi, watercress, tatsoi/bok choy, cabbages (napa, red and regular), arugula, turnip, broccoli rabe/rapini etc., are meant for their valuable nutrition.
These vegetables have cancer fighting phytonutrients called sulfuraphane and indoles. It is believed that these cut down your risk of cancer by half. Why not feast on a few of these veggies everyday? Sulfuraphane increases the body’s ability to detoxify carcinogenic substances (agents that cause cancer). Indoles suppress the growth of tumors and inhibit cancer cell metastasis (the movement of cancer cells from one part of the body to another).
