As children we were always told to eat our greens, the main reason being that they contain beneficial, health-giving properties. Health experts continually stress the importance of eating, “Five (vegetables) a day”, believing there is a link between diet and cancer. A leading Cambridge university doctor stated this week that food can be important in altering our susceptibility to cancer and possibly survival from it. So it’s no surprise to hear that a pill made from cabbage could soon be used in the fight against breast cancer. Apparently the vegetable contains molecules which kill cancer tumour cells. Good news for women everywhere and even better reason to eat your greens!

Naomi, I hadn't read about the "pill" thing. I've been trying to do better with the diet since the BC and truly believe diet is a big factor. My doc thinks exercise is too. I'd heard about the curry connection but haven't been a fan and really don't know much about cooking it. Thanks for the research updates. They are helpful.
