      Cancer Fighting Properties:

      Cauliflower, broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables contain compounds known as isothiocyanates, which inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Researchers at the University of California, Berkley, reported that isothiocyanates inhibited the growth of breast tumors in humans. A study by L.J. Wang and other researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health, reported in "Cancer Causes & Control," found that people whose genetic makeup made them more likely to develop lung cancer were less likely to develop the cancer if they ate cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower. Researchers are working to create cancer treatments from the isothiocyanates in cruciferous vegetables.
