DESCRIPTION: In a test tube, the broccoli phytonutrient sulforaphane appears to target breast cancer stem cells, but how do we know it's even absorbed into the body? Have women undergoing breast reduction surgery eat some an hour before their operation and directly measure the level in their tissues. Have a question about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/sulf... and I'll try to answer it! This is a follow-up to yesterday's video-of-the-day Broccoli Versus Cancer Stem Cells (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/brocc...). Note that the sources for this video are all open access, so you can click on them above in the Sources Cited section and read them full-text for free. Worried about the safety of sprouts? You're probably thinking about alfalfa. See my videos Don't Eat Raw Alfalfa Sprouts (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dont-...) and Update on Alfalfa Sprouts (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/updat...). Broccoli sprouts appear much safer. See Broccoli Sprouts (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/brocc...). And if that isn't enough, there are hundreds of other videos on more than a thousand subjects (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/).
