Broccoli has been found to have more cancer-fighting compounds than other members of the cabbage family. It is rich in glucosinolates which, once ingested, break down into these healthful cancer fighters: indoles, sulforaphane, and isothiocyanates. Broccoli also provides high amounts of Vitamin C, folate, and beta carotene and significant amounts of protein, calcium, iron, potassium, and fiber.
