The Broccoli Trade-Off
Health
Thursday, 24 March 2016 18:36
Everywhere, USA, March 2016 — Consumption of broccoli has increased in the United States over the last few decades as scientists have reported that eating the vegetable three to five times per week can lower the risk of many types of cancer including breast, prostate, and colon cancers.
 
A new study reports that including broccoli in the diet may also protect against liver cancer, as well as aid in countering the development of fatty liver or nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) which can cause malfunction of the liver and lead to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), a liver cancer with a high mortality rate. 
 
Scientists remind us that the usual story about broccoli and health is that it can protect against a number of different cancers. But until lately, nobody had looked at liver cancer. It was decided a few years back that liver cancer needed to be studied particularly because of the obesity epidemic in the U.S. It is already in the literature that obesity enhances the risk for liver cancer, which is particularly the case for men. They have almost a 5-fold greater risk for liver cancer if they are obese.
