Epidemiological evidence that kim chi consumption may significantly increase cancer risk.
We know that vegetables reduce cancer risk, but what about fermented vegetables? Kimchi, a Korean dish usually made out of fermented cabbage. Harmful, harmless, or helpful? Harmful, potentially doubling one’s risk of breast cancer. And may increase the odds of getting prostate cancer 10-fold—just a spoonful a day. This is one of the studies that changed my eating habits this year.
It’s funny, everytime I come home from the medical library my family’s like “What can’t we eat now.” Or they’re like “Hmm, why is there, parsley in everything all the sudden?”
