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.
