6 of the Best Cancer Fighting Foods

3. Broccoli

Broccoli is an exceptionally potent anticancer food. The elimination of a type of estrogen linked to breast cancer is increased by sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol, compounds called glucosinolates which are found in broccoli.[4]

Research demonstrates that both indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane stops the growth of both breast and prostate cancer cells.[5]

Indole-3-carbinol also increases the liver’s ability to detoxify toxic compounds and also reduces human papillomavirus growth, the dreaded virus linked to cervical cancer.

It’s suggested by researchers that eating about 2 pounds of broccoli a week could reduce cancer risk by half.broccoli
