The anti-proliferative effects of cruciferous vegetable phytonutrients may decrease the metastatic potential of lung cancer, the number one cancer killer of women.
Nota del Doctor
This video is the tenth in a series on the latest research on cruciferous vegetables. There were two on kale: Kale and the Immune System, and Smoking Versus Kale Juice. One on DNA protection: DNA Protection from Broccoli. Two on breast cancer: Broccoli Versus Breast Cancer Stem Cells, and Sulforaphane: From Broccoli to Breast. Two on upper safety limits: Liver Toxicity Due to Broccoli Juice? and How Much Broccoli Is Too Much? One on detoxing: The Best Detox, and Sometimes the Enzyme Myth Is True, on maximizing the production and absorption of sulforaphane, one of the key phytonutrients. Also, be sure to check out my other videos on greens.
