Broccoli & Tomatoes
New research shows that this most delicious of food combos prevents prostate cancer, but no one is sure why. In a recent cancer research study, John W. Erdman Jr., PhD, of the University of Illinois, proved that the combination shrunk prostate-cancer tumors in rats and that nothing but the extreme measure of castration could actually be a more effective alternative treatment.
“We know that tomato powder lowers the growth of tumors,” says Erdman. “We know that broccoli does, too. And we know they’re better together. But it’s going to take years to find out why.”
