Sprouted Vegetables Fight Cancer

I wrote about the benefits of broccoli sprouts years ago, and now researchers are confirming the usefulness of sprouted vegetables, an incredibly inexpensive and healthy source of nutrients. Researchers found that a small amount--a few forkfuls--of sprouted vegetables could help protect against cancer. They say eating just over 100 grams of tasty sprouted vegetables every day for a fortnight has been shown to have clear protective effects against DNA damage in human blood cells, which is associated with cancer risk. They used a mix of broccoli, radish, alfalfa and clover sprouts in the study.
