Sulfur in Broccoli and other Cruciferous Vegetables May Hold the Key to Healing Genetic Diseases

Our mothers were right. Broccoli is good for us, but possibly in ways our mothers never knew. Health practitioners and fitness experts around the world have heralded the benefits of broccoli for decades. Scientists have long demonstrated the antioxidant properties of broccoli. Many people know that broccoli is rich in vitamins A, C, and E, the big free radical scavenger vitamins. However, a brand new clinical study was just released in January 2012 which is getting scientists excited about broccoli – and other cruciferous vegetables – again. Broccoli, and similar vegetables like Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower may be able to manipulate human genes. The secret ingredient is sulfur.

Sulfur in glucosinolate induces enzyme expression and activates detoxification

Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts have been shown to reduce the risk of several degenerative diseases and conditions. The benefits of a diet rich in these vegetables have been well-documented in the medical literature for cardiovascular disease and cancer. What scientists are excited about now is a unique organic compound called glucosinolate, Continue reading

Include Watercress in Your Diet

Watercress arrests cancer growth as effectively as—if not better than—conventional cancer treatments… without all the side effects.

In September of last year, scientists from the Cancer Research Centre at Southampton General Hospital’s School of Medicine in the U.K. unveiled astounding findings about watercress.

Watercress is a member of the cruciferous (or cabbage) family of vegetables, all of which contain well-known cancer-fighting compounds. Now, this recent study shows that watercress can actually reduce levels of an important growth factor that spurs tumor development.  Essentially, compounds in watercress halt a process called angiogenesis— Continue reading

Fruits and Vegetables Have Different Effects on Colon Cancer Risk

Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables has long been recommended to promote overall well-being and health. Researchers at the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research now believe that the types of produce consumed can affect a person’s risk of colorectal cancer in different ways, depending on the site of the carcinoma.

In a study, a team of scientists found that brassica vegetables — which include Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage — may have a protective effect against distal and proximal colon cancer. However, apples were specifically associated with a lower risk of tumors of the distal colon, while fruit juice appeared to increase chances of rectal cancer. Continue reading

Sulforaphane Found in Cruciferous Vegetables Targets Cancer Cells

Research details published in the Molecular Nutrition & Food Research journal explains the potent mechanism exhibited by cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower to ameliorate developing cancer cells. The active photochemical known as sulforaphane targets prostate and other hormone dependent cancer lines and leaves normal healthy cells unaffected. Cruciferous vegetables have long been associated with a lowered risk of prostate cancer, but this is the first study to demonstrate the `search and attack` capability of the natural chemical compound. Consuming small amounts of crucifers several times each week can help to significantly lower your risk of developing many types of potentially deadly cancer lines.

The study was led by Dr. Emily Ho, associate professor from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University. Tissue from cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower contain high levels of the powerful natural compound chemically known as glucosinolates. In the body glucosinolates are broken down into sulforaphane  Continue reading

Stay Healthy by Growing your Own Organic Fruits and Vegetables

Growing your own organic fruits and vegetables guarantees the freshest, best-tasting nutrient-rich food. Tending your organic garden also offers a very personal and spiritual experience.

One of the best ways to stay healthy year-round is to eat in the season thereof. This simply means that when certain foods are in season, you eat as much of them as you can and preserve the excess by canning, dehydrating and freezing.

Have you ever noticed that you crave seasonal fruits and vegetables? That is because our bodies need the nutrients we get from the different foods that are grown in those seasons.

If you don’t grow a garden, you can shop  Continue reading

Cabbage Must Be One of the Best Anti-Cancer Foods

Men with early signs of developing prostate cancer were able to prevent tumor growth by eating broccoli four times a week, according to a British study covered on MSN (http://health.msn.com/health-topics…). But broccoli is not the only cruciferous vegetable with anti-cancer properties.

Cabbage has a long history of use both as food and medicine, according to The George Mateljan Foundation for the World’s Healthiest Foods. Manual laborers were fed salted cabbage with their rice, according to William Duffy’s “Sugar Blues”, to keep them strong and healthy during the building of the Great Wall of China (http://www.naturalpedia.com/cabbage…). It was the only food they had besides their rice. Cabbage was also grown in Ancient Greek and Roman civilizations that held  Continue reading
