Abstract:
The article focuses on role of cauliflower in prevention of cancer. A mild member of the Cruckiferae family (which also includes broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, bok choy and kale), cauliflower is made up of hundreds of tiny white flowers that stop growing at the bud stage. Cruciferous vegetables contain unique anticancer compounds, including glucosinolates and isothiocyanates, which stimulate enzymes that deactivate carcinogens. Cauliflower can be boiled, steamed, baked, sauteed or microwaved, though cooking with water causes losses of vitamin C and anthocyanins.
