The boost in detoxifying enzymes triggered by cruciferous vegetable consumption may last for weeks!
The polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the vapors released from cooking meat may be hazardous for fetal development and increase the risk of cancer.
To review what I had covered previously about the remarkable detoxifying effect of cruciferous vegetables, see my videos The Best Detox and Sometimes the Enzyme Myth Is True. You can overdo it, but apparently only at extremely high doses (see Liver Toxicity Due to Broccoli Juice, Overdosing on Greens, and How Much Broccoli Is Too Much?).
Wasn't the protective effect of fruit and vegetable consumption against cancer called into question, though? See my video EPIC Study.
What other foods may mediate the effects of the mutagenic compounds in cooked meat? See the last two videos Cancer, Interrupted: Green Tea and Cancer, Interrupted: Garlic & Flavonoids. What are these heterocyclic amines? You must have missed my four-part video series starting with Estrogenic Cooked Meat Carcinogens!
More about the implications of frying veggie burgers here: Carcinogens in the Smell of Frying Bacon, an update of which I'm going to give in my next video—stay tuned!
