Broccoli sprouts may be able to improve survival rates of bladder cancer patients, boost liver detoxification, and target breast cancer stem cells. Broccoli sprouts have a higher nutrient level than broccoli supplements, and raw broccoli has more sulfuraphane than cooked. Raw broccoli sprouts are not associated with food poisoning like alfalfa sprouts. In one study, seemed to protect skin cells from sun damage. The good news is you can grow your own broccoli sprouts at home at a lower cost than buying them in the store. However, very high amounts of broccoli sprouts can be toxic.
