Broccoli and Soy Fight Cancer: Here’s How

Eating foods like broccoli and soy has been linked to lower cancer rates, and California researchers may have discovered how.

Diindolymethane (DIM), a compound resulting from digestion of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and cabbage, and genistein, an isoflavone in soy, reduce the production of two proteins needed for breast and ovarian cancer to spread.

The amounts used in the study were comparable to amounts from supplementation versus just consuming the soy and cruciferous vegetables however.
