Key Subjects:

  • See Sulforaphane write-up
  • Potential benefits of sulforaphane, as found in certain leafy vegetables, especially broccoli.
  • Tricky to capture benefits:
    • Eating raw broccoli has drawbacks.
    • Eating cooked broccoli has drawbacks.
    • There is variability in bio-uptake by humans.
    • There is variability in amount (broccoli vs broccoli sprouts vs broccoli seeds).
    • Supplements vary highly in quality.

Key Takeaways:

  • Eat more broccoli: consider sprouting (labor intensive and … smelly!) and supplements.

Worth Listening:
