Extract Of Broccoli Sprouts May Protect Against Bladder Cancer ScienceDaily
"This finding reinforces human epidemiologic studies that have suggested that eating cruciferous vegetables like broccoli is associated with reduced risk for bladder cancer, according to the study's senior investigator, Yuesheng Zhang, MD, PhD, professor of oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. 'Although this is an animal study, it provides potent evidence that eating vegetables is beneficial in bladder cancer prevention,' he said...There is strong evidence that the protective action of cruciferous vegetables derives at least in part from isothyiocyanates (ITCs), a group of phytochemicals with well-known cancer preventive activities...Other cruciferous vegetables with ITCs include mature broccoli, cabbage, kale, collard greens and others. Broccoli sprouts have approximately 30 times more ITCs than mature broccoli, and the sprout extract used by the researchers contains approximately 600 times as much...humans at increased risk for this cancer likely do not need to eat huge amounts of broccoli sprouts in order to derive protective benefits..."
