Broccoli sprouts are likely safer and more nutritious than alfalfa sprouts.
But what about broccoli sprouts, though? Check out this a study: they burn someone’s arm with a UV laser here and here. Same burn, but on this side they had first rubbed some broccoli sprouts on the skin and you can visibly see the cellular protection. And this is not like sun block. They washed the guys arm off and three days later did the same thing in a different spot. This spot had some broccoli sprouts rubbed on and washed off three days prior. Cells still protected.
But what about the risk of food poisoning? 5 million packages of broccoli sprouts were tested for bad bugs and what did they find? Harmful??? Harmless??? Helpful??? Less than one in a thousand containers contaminated, so I say go for it.
