“You’ve surely heard that broccoli is one of nature’s most potent cancer-preventing foods. Several studies attest to this fact.

One of the reasons that broccoli seems to work is related to a compound called sulforaphane. It selectively targets cancer stem cells, and by doing so, it effectively prevents the cancer from spreading and/or recurring….

broccoli sprouts, contain the highest amounts of isothiocyanates…”

From Dr. Joseph Mercola’s Newletter 5/27/10

From Kelley Eidem, author of The Doctor Who Cures Cancer
“Let’s talk about sulfurophane. First, why can’t they use easy words like “dog” or “cat” for those healthy compounds! Let’s call ’em “sulfy.” Are you with me…sulfy.

Sulfy helps 200 of your genes, including the ones that make you younger.

Sulfy allows YOU to make your own antioxidants, too. A big secret is that the antioxidants your body makes are far more powerful than the ones you eat!

In other words, YOU are more powerful than a bowl of blueberries! But that’s only true if you give yourself the raw ingredients. Broccoli: yum! LOL!

If you like broccoli, then you are definitely a step ahead.

I don’t hate broccoli, but I don’t eat enough of it according to Dr. Mercola, who wants you and me to eat 10 spears of it a week. Ten spears?!?

As noted above, Mercola also points out that it’s broccoli sprouts that have the highest concentration of the real secret ingredient: isothiocyanates, also known as “issy.” haha

I don’t recall the last time I ate a broccoli sprout, do you? hehe But if you do, that is fantastic!”

Everyone has cancer. Johns Hopkins recently reminded us of this fact while studying how most of us beat the deadly outcome: the immune system. When it identifies a cancerous cell, it attacks and eliminates it from the body. But every now and then, this system gets hoodwinked by rogue cancer cells.

Rogue cancer cells have the ability to become invisible and therefore overcome our immune system defenses. This superpower helps it invade other regions of the body. Internally, we become a playground for cancerous infection and disease. Slow death ensues. Fortunately, anyone can overcome it.

To beat rogue cancer cells, you need to eliminate their ability to become invisible. What keeps cancer cells out of sight from your immune system? Trophoblast cells. You can expose cancer for what it is – deadly – by boosting your pancreatic enzymes. Pancreatic enzymes eliminate trophoblast cells and thus reveal any underlying cancer cells to your “immunity radar” for eventual eradication.

Several natural medicines have been identified that attack trophoblast cells. The most effective are flavonoids found in broccoli; whey isolate; B-17 from the apricot seed; and curcumin (which is available at Wal-Mart).

Considering their aggressive attack on invisible cancer cells, boosting pancreatic enzymes should be a daily habit among anyone who wants to ward off the everyday occurrence of cancer.
