Broccoli is a member of the calciferous family this vegetable has anticancer effects, particularly in breast cancer.
There are compounds in broccoli that increases the excretion of the form of estrogen (2-hydoxyestrone) lined to breast cancer. It is also very high in calcium.
If the broccoli is not organic, let it soak in some cold water and vinegar, this helps clear up any pesticides etc.
Broccoli can be eaten raw or cooked as a side dish to accompany your main meal or you can add it to salads too.
Steaming or roasted is the best way to cook broccoli if you like it cooked. My personal favorite is to saute it with some olive oil and pine nuts and a little garlic. It’s great in soups too!
