Raw Cruciferous Vegetables Help Prevent Bladder Cancer

Cruciferous vegetables are well-lauded for their antioxidant properties and anti-cancer effects. And recent research carried out at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute has further affirmed the latter.

Two separate studies were recently reported, one of which was conducted on rats, which have shown the ability of these vegetables to fight bladder cancer.

The other study found that eating as little as just three servings of cruciferous vegetables each month could lower one’s risk of getting bladder cancer by some 40%.

Bottom line – eat more cruciferous vegetables, and eat them raw, because cooking them reduces the isothiocyanate content in them significantly, perhaps by 60% to 90%, and these compounds are believed to be responsible for a large part of these vegetables’ cancer-fighting properties.

Cruciferous vegetables include arugula, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens, daikon, garden cress, horseradish, kale, kohlrabi, mustard, radish, rape (canola), rapini, rutabaga, tatsoi, turnip, wasabi as well as watercress.
