    Lol! Volcanic. NOT a good visual to start my morning, Doc ;^)

    But, seriously, wasn’t he putting his life in danger? I recently recall a person died consuming water like that — continuously. Some self-experimentation is just insane.

    Some people like to climb mountains and others like to push the envelope overdoing wheat grass! I guess that it takes all kinds! :)

    • John Galt

      “Dr.” Ann Wigmore advocated wheatgrass “implants”. Since broccoli sprouts are nutritionally superior to wheatgrass and it deters prostate cancer (according to John Hopkins doctors; look for the smiley face in the produce dept.) and since it would be very close to the prostate, what about “broccoli sprout implants” for prostate cancer self-treatment???

    My daughter told me that Turnips are a super food. Very low in calories and contain almost all vitamins. Is the turnip all that?

    Dr. Greger, I laughed so hard at your line “they don’t know health nuts the way I know some health nuts”.

    I’ve met so MANY of those people over my life and your delivery was great.

    Is one cup of broccoli sprouts about 70-80grams?

    • Michael Greger M.D.

      No, I think 70-80 grams would be more like 2 and a half cups.

  • Bret Iron

    So, is 4 cups of Broccoli sprouts not good??

    “It was volcanic”, that was SO funny :) I’m still laughing.

    Dr. Gregor, I find use of cups as a form of measurement too confusing to translate into scientific terms. Could you please translate 4 cups or 1.25 cups into ounces or grams? Thanks

  • kris brubaker

    Dr. Greger, I find the use of cups as a unit of measurement confusing and unsciencific. Could you rephase your references using grams or ounces please? Thank you! (So how many ounces or grams is 4 cups or 1.25 for that matter?)
