• It's a potent cancer fighter. Compounds in this vegetable stop ovarian, breast, and prostate cancer cells from spreading, cuts the risk of laryngeal cancer, and inhibits other cancers.
• It's rich in vitamin C and lutein, and high levels of those can cut the risk of eye damage.
• It's inexpensive, easy to cook, is easy to find year-round and is tasty. To get the most nutritional value, eat raw or near-raw by steaming it to preserve nutrients. Adding a little fat (evoo) will allow the body to best absorb nutrients.
