Cancer: Compound found in broccoli, kale can suppress tumour growth

The decreased risk of cancer has for long been associated with consumption of broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens, Brussels sprouts and kale, but the actual gene which works for it was not known. The current research has found that these cruciferous vegetables contain a molecule which inactivates a gene known as WWP1

Cancer: Compound found in broccoli, kale can suppress tumour growthThe body has its own mechanisms for fighting cancer, but sometimes they are too weak to suppress tumour growth. Now, scientists have found that broccoli, kale, and other cruciferous vegetables contain a compound that could reinvigorate one of these innate mechanisms. Researchers from Harvard Medical Schools Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, saw […]

#WorldCancerDay: Consuming cabbage and broccoli can help prevent colon cancer

A new study emphasises the importance to gut health of eating plenty of vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, and kale

#WorldCancerDay: Consuming cabbage and broccoli can help prevent colon cancer  Scientists say they have discovered why some vegetables – including cabbage, broccoli and kale – can reduce the risk of bowel cancers. That cruciferous vegetables are good for the gut has never been in doubt but a detailed explanation has been elusive. The team at the Francis Crick Institute found anti-cancer chemicals were produced […]

Eating more vegetables interlinked with better artery health for older women

A new study of older women living in Australia finds that eating more vegetables - especially cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower - might help to prevent clogged arteries, a main cause of heart attack and stroke

Eating more vegetables interlinked with better artery health for older womenElderly women who eat more vegetables may be less likely to develop hardening of the arteries, an Australian study suggests. Researchers surveyed 954 women aged 70 and older. They also used ultrasound to assess the thickness of the walls of the carotid artery in the neck, and the extent of plaque accumulation. Thinner artery walls […]
