Cabbage, Broccoli Lower Bladder Cancer Risk


Cabbage, Broccoli Lower Bladder Cancer Risk

Men who consume a lot of cruciferous vegetables - specifically, broccoli and cabbage - may reduce their risk of bladder cancer. The higher the intake of cruciferous vegetables, the lower the bladder cancer risk. Of all the vegetables, only broccoli and cabbage intake seemed to have an impact on bladder cancer risk. Because the rate of bladder cancer in men is three to four times higher than in women, the researchers note that the findings may not apply to women.

COMMENT It is good to see phytonutrient-based research being published in some of the hard core allopathic cancer journals. I believe this is an encouraging sign. In general, it is wise to include as many different. varieties of vegetables in your diet as you can tolerate. The, greater the variety and the larger the volume, the better. Most all of the powerful healing elements of food are in the vegetables. The grains are what is getting our culture into most disease-producing conditions as they are relatively devoid of nutrients when compared with vegetables. Vegetables deserve to be at the base of the food pyramid, not the grains. (They should be placed far higher up, right under sugar.) Journal of the National Cancer Institute April 7,1999;91:605-613.
