broccoli fights cancer
YES, You should eat your broccoli. It really is SUPER good for you!
10,000 Cancer cells each day
It is a frightening but true fact that you and everyone you know is developing cancer right now.
Everyday around ten thousand times your body makes mistakes in cell division. This is a shocking fact but we should all keep in mind that cancer is not simply common but inevitable.
Fortunately, your body has an amazing natural defense system that stops these cancers from ever becoming a problem.
This defense system is called angiogenesis.
Angiogenesis is part of the process by which your body grows and maintains blood vessels. This process is all about balance. Under normal circumstances your blood vessels play the vital role of transporting nutrients and oxygen to your body's organs and tissues.
However, if your blood vessels grow irregularly then are equally likely to deliver this nourishment (fuel) to your microscopic cancers providing them with the fuel that they need to grow and spread as tumors in your body.
When your body is working correctly and at optimum health, your angiogenesis is well balanced and your blood vessels will arrange themselves to feed healthy cells while starving your microscope cancers.
broccoli promotes healthy angiogenesis
Broccoli has also been found to have potent angiogenesis balancing effects.
Broccoli contains sulforaphanes.
Sulforphanes are substances that help angiogenesis keep blood vessel production in balance and fight cancer.
A Harvard University study has shown that broccoli consumption is associated with a 30% percent lower risk of ovarian cancer, 59% lower risk of prostate cancer, and a 28% lower risk of melanoma the most deadly form of skin cancer.
To help reduce your risk of cancer add between one to two cups of broccoli to your diet each week.
