This week’s highlight goes to the ever
popular Cabbage! The health benefits
from cabbage are innumerable. People
who regularly consume large amounts
of cabbage are found to be enjoying low
rate of colon cancer. The protective
element of cabbage is assumed to have
come from bioflavonoids, indoles,
monterprenes and other plant chemicals
that inhibit tumor growth and protect
cells against damage from free radicals,
those unstable molecules released when
the body uses oxygen. Some of these
chemicals also speed up the body’s
metabolism of estrogen.

Iun facts:
Cabbage is the most commonly consumed
vegetable next to potatoes in the world.

Cabbage is also one of the oldest vegetables,
dating back to the 1600’s.
