A Surprising Benefit From Eating Broccoli

Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables. It’s also one the foods I introduced into our family. My wife and sons didn’t eat much broccoli before we were married. Now, much to my befuddlement, her broccoli tastes better than mine.

“I do not like broccoli. And I haven’t liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I’m President of the United States and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli.”  –George Bush

The same year President Bush made this statement, Johns Hopkins University published a cancer study showing that broccoli prevented the development of tumors by 60 percent and helped reduce the size of the tumor by 75 percent! .

I’ve known for a long time that broccoli was a potent cancer fighter. When it comes to health, eating lots of broccoli has major benefits for your body.  Broccoli along with cauliflower and Brussel sprouts are members of the cruciferous family of vegetables. All three contain compounds that fight cancer and boost your immune system. Please, click here to access a Government website with tons of information about cruciferous vegetables and cancer.

I made a fascinating discovery about broccoli this past weekend. This blew my socks off. I’m going to make sure I eat something out of the cruciferous family, at least, three times a week or more.

This news stunned me when I read it. I always hear about this cleanse, or some other cleanse for your body. I generally consider most of these products to be snake oil, just like the bottles of snake oil sold out of the back of a wagon in the old westerns. Imagine my surprise, when I found out that broccoli actually contains elements that help you to pass harmful chemicals out of your body, through your urine. Check out the link above. You owe it to yourself to read what The Atlantic has to say about eating broccoli. See you soon. God be with you until we meet again.
