Researchers at the University of Illinois have found that a compound, commonly found in broccoli, brussels sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables, is effective in disrupting late stages of cell growth in breast cancer, reports Webindia123.

The compound, known as sulforaphane (SUL), could be used to enhance the prevention and treatment of breast cancer, as chewing causes the cell walls of these vegetables to break, and SUL is released into the body.
