Cruciferous Veggies and their anti-cancer effects

To this day, mainstream medicine largely ignores the science proving diet as protective against illness, including cancer. Some doctors say “watch what you eat”, but that’s about as far as the nutritional advice goes. 

Those of us who are informed know that the food we eat on a regular basis does matter!

The “magic” ingredient

Every time you eat broccoli, broccoli sprouts, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts, your body converts a key nutrient found in these tasty foods into another one that science has been aggressively researching for its anti-cancer potential. This converted nutrient, known as 3,3′-Diindolylmethane, or DIM, has shown incredible promise in the fight against cancer, demonstrating powerful chemo-protective action that may help in the prevention, suppression, and even reversal of cancer.

DIM has been shown in both animal and human studies to inhibit the development of cancer. Like its counterpart sulforaphane, DIM is an epigenetic modulator, meaning it has the capacity to alter certain enzymatic pathways to inhibit the formation and spread of cancer.
