Truth be told, conventional medicine has made somestrides (let’s call them baby steps) over the last 40 years when it comes to disease prevention. Mainstream medicine does continue to tout the “slash-and-burn” method as the be-all and end-all for treating cancer after it develops, yet the concept of taking proactive steps to reduce the risk of cancer (like exercising and eating “healthier”) is now fairly commonplace.
What your conventional doctor is probably forgetting to mention, however, is that for years there has been a simple, natural, and yes, scientifically proven way to keep cancer at bay. It’s called sulforaphane. It can be found in cruciferous vegetables and especially in broccoli sprouts.
“Three-day-old broccoli sprouts consistently contain 20 to 50 times the amount of chemoprotective compounds found in mature broccoli heads and may offer a simple dietary means of chemically reducing cancer risk,” Dr. Paul Talalay reported in a 1997 Johns Hopkins press release.
Dr. Talalay is the Founding Director of the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chemoprotection Center at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is one of the top biomedical researchers in the world and a pioneer in the field of phytochemicals.
