Levels of the beneficial, cancer-fighting compound sulforaphane in broccoli are reduced by 90 percent when the vegetable is cooked, so I would think it would be a good idea for folks to get to eatin’ raw broccoli mixed in with their salad. At the very least once a week. Thing is you will have to either buy organic or grow your own. Just one more reason to get out there this spring and get to planting your own garden. I should say boiled broccoli is better than nothing, just don’t over cook it. Also best to eat it with tomatoes as the combination fights off cancer. My Opinion Only
