  • Nutrition Tip

    Cruciferous vegetables, including cabbage, broccoli, and brussels sprouts, are rich sources of nutrients and phytochemicals that help support the immune system and fight cancer.

    A 2000 study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute indicates that three or more servings of cruciferous vegetables a week slashes prostate cancer risk by nearly 50 percent.

    In addition, these vegetables are high in fiber, and also offer Vitamin C, beta carotene, calcium, iron, and folic acid.
