It seems so obvious but for some time now conventional wisdom has looked down upon this concept. But modern research has shown again and again the truth of this sentiment. We now know that most of the major health concerns that plague us have many of their roots in poor diet, exercise, stress and lifestyle choices.

Prevention of Breast Cancer
Extracts of Broccoli have clearly proven in research to protect the body from estrogen based cancers. One caveat is that you need to eat 3 lbs of broccoli. Time for a supplement I assume! The idea here is this extract helps detox estrogen from the body via regulating liver enzymes that process estrogen hormones.
