Cruciferous vegetables are good for you – everybody knows that. But they might be even better for you than you think! 

It turns out that they might be better for not just normal health reasons, but even for fighting cancer. 

New research has found that cruciferous vegetables (which includes broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and brussel sprouts) contain an ingredient that can suppress the growth of cancer.

According to the research, cruciferous vegetables contain the indole-3-carbinol molecule which can boost the cancer-fighting abilities of the PTEN gene.

This can help suppress the growth of cancerous tumours.

This research is at a preliminary stage. Further studies are being planned to build on these findings and, ultimately, develop a potent cancer cell inhibitor.

That said, this is a very promising step towards discovering a way to fight cancer from the inside: by enabling our body’s internal mechanism to suppress cancerous cells.
