Broccoli is a true superhero food for fighting pancreatic cancer.
Broccoli is one of the best foods to eat if you want to turbo-charge your anti pancreatic cancer diet. Broccoli contains some extraordinary compounds that have been shown to eliminate carcinogenic toxins, prevent DNA mutation, induce apoptosis in cancer cells, help prevent the development of benign tumors into malignant tumors, and help prevent cancer from spreading from one organ to another. Broccoli sprouts, available at many health food stores, are a particularly rich in cancer-fighting compounds, but also broccoli florets provide substantial amounts. To maximize the health benefits of broccoli, eat your broccoli raw or slightly steamed. Consumption of raw, crushed broccoli has been shown to result in faster and better absorption of the cancer-fighting compounds in broccoli. According to one study, cooking may destroy up to 90% of sulforaphane — the key anti-cancer substance in broccoli.
