Another scientific finding that shows why Broccoli is good for you! It awakens a potent system in your body that suppresses tumors! And the mechanism of these natural compounds can have other applications in the general fight against cancers. I'd grow more organic broccolis!

But don't head to the farmer's market just yet; first author Yu-Ru Lee, PhD, a member of the Pandolfi lab, notes you'd have to eat nearly 6 pounds of Brussels sprouts a day -- and uncooked ones at that -- to reap their potential anti-cancer benefit.
I checked around and found you can supplement with IC3

The best are still the natural form instead of purified extracts in pills that sometimes don't work. I believe that there's better quality in diversity if the nutraceuticals aren't in pure form as the different components harmonizes with each other from a natural source such as a real vegetable. Besides, you get to enjoy them too!

Have any of you tried to grow Broccoli in Florida?  I know the cold gives it a good flavor and there are some heat tolerant varieties but I'd like to see if someone else has had the experience with it.

So much to learn about the healing and protective properties of plants.

Choice broccoli varieties that do well in South Florida are of interest to me as well.
