Cauliflower for Ultimate Health and Wellness

Achieving great health and wellness is as easy as eating your vegetables. Therefore it would be foolish not to start eating more broccoli, according to research.
Research has found that certain vegetables like kale, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts contain sulforaphane, which is a very potent cancer-fighting chemical. Broccoli is a rich source of glucosinolates which break down into the substance called sulforophane. Sulphoraphane appears to have a strong anti-cancer effect by stimulating our natural defenses. Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine researchers recognized sulphoraphane as a compound found in broccoli sprouts. The researchers also found that it also kills the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, that is thought to be responsible for many cases of stomach cancer and ulcers.
