Broccoli and Cabbage to fight breast cancer!

A recent study showed that women who consumed the highest amounts of coniferous vegetables, such as broccoli, were 62% less likely to die from breast cancer and 35% less likely to get reoccurrence of the breast cancer as compared to subjects who consumed the least amount of coniferous vegetables.

Cruciferous vegetables include mustard greens, turnip greens, bok choy, broccoli, cauliflower, green cabbage, kale, collard greens, and arugula.

The study included roughly 5,000 women from the Shanghai Breast Cancer Survival Study. The subjects consumed about 3.5 oz of the cruciferous vegetables.
