I’m sure you have a family history or a close relative or friend, who has suffered from cancer.

It may have been breast, colon or prostate cancer.

Some people will develop cancer even though they do not have a family history.

You want to be smart and proactive, and defend your body against cancer.

Preventive medicine has been practiced by many societies, and it’s truly the best path to health and wellness.

Studies have been done in societies that eat plenty of cruciferous vegetables, and the results have shown a significant lower level of cancer among these communities.

 

What are Cruciferous Vegetables?

Cruciferous Vegetables are anti-oxidant rich vegetables. They contain ‘phyto-chemicals’ that can stimulate cells to produce cancer-fighting enzymes.

Experiments have identified several ways these compounds prevent cancer.

  • They help cells from DNA damage.
  • They have anti-inflammatory effects.
  • They inhibit tumor blood vessel formation and tumor cell migration needed for metastasis.
  • They help inactivate carcinogens.
