Fighting cancer. We all hear the veggies are good for us, but our knowledge is much more specific. There are compounds in cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, kale, radishes, etc..) known as I-3-C & DIM that are know to be powerhouses for helping fight cancer.
This article delves deeper into this, finding that these compounds stop new blood vessel formation. Tumors HAVE to have more blood flow to feed their voracious hungers. Stop that, and you stop tumors. A big problem here is that anyone with digestive problems or on acid-blocking drugs may not convert I-3-C to DIM, and thus not get the cancer preventing compounds from their food.
