Broccoli Fights Cancer

Vegetables have long been known to have antioxidant and other health benefits, and recently researchers discovered exactly how vegetables, including broccoli, fight cancer. In a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, scientists uncovered a specific substance found in vegetables that may help block cancer-causing genes.

In nearly every form of cancer, tumor suppressor gene P53 is mutated. The gene normally prevents abnormal growth and works as a protector. Previous studies have shown that isothiocyanates (ITCs) have cancer-stopping principles. These ITCs can be found in cauliflower, broccoli, and other vegetables. Vegetables are believed to be so effective because the ITCs may target this gene, removing mutated aspects of the gene.

Dancing for Compassion

Cynthia King is director of the Cynthia King Dance Studio in Brooklyn, New York. She has been a dancer, choreographer and dedicated animal advocate for more than 30 years. As a vegan, she spent many years searching for ballet slippers that were cruelty-free, without success. So instead of waiting for the perfect product to come along, she designed it herself, creating the only readily available vegan ballet shoes, which were requested by Vogue for Natalie Portman's photo shoot!

Ms. King's passion for dance and compassion for animals have fused to form her labor of love. Her upcoming production brings compassion to the stage with “‘Dinner’ and Other Dances” on February 19th, in which part of the proceeds will benefit Farm Sanctuary.
