Do the world a favor and share this. This is important information for everyone as we’re either going to deal with breast cancer or prostate cancer ourselves some day – or one of our loved ones will.
Researchers at Yale University found that men with the highest intake of vegetables of the cruciferous variety reduced their risk of spreading and aggressive prostate cancer by 50 percent. These men had two servings or more of cruciferous vegetables each week, generally cauliflower and broccoli. While eating, an enzymatic reaction produces nutrients named diindolylmethane (DIM) and Indole-3-carbinol (I3C). Unfortunately, boiling, steaming, or microwaving can greatly reduce effectiveness – up to 58 percent. So eating cruciferous vegetables raw or lightly sautéing them will help maximize the amount of DIM and I3C that can be formed.
Luckily, dietary supplements of DIM and I3C can provide high levels of these potent nutrients in a single capsule containing far more DIM and I3C than a serving of these cruciferous vegetables.
