Brussel sprouts are especially full of the cancer-fighting chemicals ‘glucosinolates’ which kill ‘aflatoxin’ , a fungal mould linked to liver cancer. Brussel sprouts contain other natural cancer-fighting chemicals such as ‘indoles’, ‘dithiolthiones’ and ‘carotenoids’. These neutralise and detoxify the cancer –causing carcinogens ingested and absorbed by the body.
