Foods That Help Prevent Pancreatic Cancer Horseradish

Horseradish

Horseradish can add a nice kick to scrambled eggs, salads, and vegetable dishes, but its benefits are not purely culinary. Horseradish provides a concentrated source of glucosinolates, natural compounds that have can help eliminate carcinogens that could cause pancreatic cancer. According to research, glucosinolates also have qualities that can help block the growth of cancerous tumors. Many cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli and Brussels sprouts, contain glucosinolates, but the amounts found in horseradish are much higher (according to studies, horseradish may contain up to 10 times more glucosinolates than broccoli).
