There have been certain vegetables such as broccoli which were discovered to have certain cancer-fighting properties because of substances which are called isothiocyanates.
The discovery was published in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry and it could be a groundbreaking turning point in the battle against cancer as a whole.
Broccoli is actually very good for the body for a number of reasons, including the fact that it has plenty of vitamin C as well as dietary fiber and numerous nutrients which could help in fighting against other types of illnesses.
Broccoli is not the only vegetable able to help with the treatment of breast, prostate, and lung cancers which kill millions of people each year. These cancer-fighting substances can also be found in cauliflower as well as watercress and numerous other vegetables.
The substances may be able to help in fighting these cancers by supporting a tumor suppressor which keeps cells healthy and prevents them from growing at an abnormal rate.
Scientists are excited about the discovery and what it could mean for the battle against these cancers as well as many others.
