Broccoli, which is often used for stir-frying the cabbage family that is closely related to cauliflower. It turned out that the study of the journal Oncology, said that broccoli contains the phytonutrients sulforaphane and indoles which have anticancer effects.

Research on indole-3-carbinol proved, these components help to reduce the active metabolite of the potent estrogen in increasing the risk of tumor growth. Especially in cancer cells that are sensitive to estrogen and simultaneously raise the levels of 2-hidroksiestrone, a form of estrogen that are protective against the presence of cancer.

According to research, indole-3-carbinol is not only suppress the growth of breast cancer cells, but also suppress the spread of cancer cells to other organs.

The experts also found that sulforaphane increases the enzymes that detoxify the body by cleaning up carcinogenic substances more quickly than the body. Researchers at Johns Hopkins examined the effects of sulforaphane on some kinds of tumors.They were able to prove that the tumor weight decreases and the slower growing, even smaller.

Not only that, sulforaphane also have the ability to reduce cell growth and cell death in leukemia and melanoma cells. Even the research studies published in the journal Carcinogenesis of Rutgers University states that sulforaphane provide special protection to individuals who have a gene susceptible to colon cancer.

Another study published in Cancer, a journal of the American Cancer Society stated that the indole-3-carbinol (I3C), which is a component of Brassica such as broccoli and cabbage have been identified as a component of anti-cancer agent against certain reproductive tumor cells.

A study investigating the effect of I3C on cell cycle and proliferation in human prostate cancer cells showed that the prostate cancer cell growth is inhibited. The researchers claim that this can be recorded as a result of studies showing that "I3C has the potential antiproliferative effect" on prostate cancer cells, which qualifies as a "potential chemotherapeutic agent" against prostate cancer so?Still hesitant to eat broccoli?
