I read a lot about broccoli and it's anti cancer effects.  Study after study in different labs all around the world make similar findings.  I'm beginning to believe it.

Do you think they are kidding.  Like I said I have seen study after study saying this about broccoli.  Do you think these guys are just a bunch of dumb researchers screwing around.   Where did you get your medical science degree?

Chris,

I wish I could say I like broccoli. I can tolerate it cooked very well done, but don't care for the taste if it is raw, like in a salad. Broccoli has been on the list of top 10 healthy foods to eat for as long as I can remember.

Broccoli sprouts are supposed to be even better from an anti cancer perspective. So if someone would like the health benefit but does not enjoy the taste of broccoli, the sprouts might be a possibility. Some time ago, i believe johns hopkins sought to patent the broccoli sprouts (or the growing method, or something like that), but JH lost a litigation over that, so now there are competing products to the brand in which JH has an interest.

LOL- but there is no patent's on this and Pharma's cannot cash in on us....that is just plain wrong! Could granny and mom actually know something about helping the species survive over the ages??? They don't own a stethescope or white robe....now who would trust their mom with their lives when a white robed guru shows up and tells you exactly how you must treat something???? You know how much profit mom makes on keeping you alive. (LOL)

John Hopkins was working on a patent on sprouts??? Yeah they are working for the cure daily (LOL), I wonder how much of our research donations go into this kind of mindset???

Chris, just kidding about the broccoli powder comment. I take several suppliments already. It just seems funny to be sprinkling broccoli powder on your meal. I do eat al lot of broccoli for it's cancer fighting benefits. However, I have read that it's best if eaten raw. First time that I have heard that it is beneficial in a suppliment form. BB

Interesting....Not a huge fan of the taste, but had actually been craving broccoli for several months prior to my Dx. Was eating it close to everyday, on a real broccoli kick for a while. The body seems to want what it wants for a reason. Don't know if it made any difference in my case but it didn't hurt to listen and am still eating it.

I sometimes get broccoli with garlic sauce at a Chinese place for $5 for lunch. Tastes pretty good.
