Eat your broccoli and then ...

Some of my best friends are smokers. My mother smoked pretty much up to the day she died from septicemia (her immune system was compromised by leukemia). So recent research that demonstrates that the biological action of isothiocyanates (phytochemicals that are abundant in cruciferous vegetables) works at the molecular level to help prevent the proliferation of cancer cells that are specific to certain types of lung cancer is good news.
And if you're hungry for a double order of healthy with a side dish of prevention, check out the recipes here.

I have to pick up some groceries today so thanks for the tip dBO!

I like the expression "cruciferous vegetables" and think it could have broader applications :-)

I always loved my cruciferous veggies, even as a child. Still do.

Yes, I was a very strange kid. Why do you ask? ;-)

Mmmmm. Cole slaw at Schwartz's. With a side order of smoked meat on rye.

deBeauxOs said...

Beijing York, is this what you had in mind?

Frank Frink said...

Ahhh... Schwartz's. You're making me homesick now. Although we do have Dunn's smoked meat available at the Costco out here in Vancouver. Not that it will ever make me consider shopping at Costco.

Gawd. If the price of smoking and not dying is eating broccoli, I may have to die...or quit..
