BRUSSEL SPROUTS KILL CANCER


When God created the universe, He provided HERBS for food for mankind to survive. Herbs are a kind of vegetable. He had also provided essentially everything for his health and comfort to live in the world.

The Lord said, "Behold, I have given you herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding to you it shall be meat" (Genesis 1:29).

In verse 30, God continued: "And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, where in there is life, I have every green herb for meat: and it was so."

From the seeds, man has learnt how to sprout them. Some sprouts are in fact toxic when eaten, like kidney beans. Some sprouts can be cooked to remove the toxin, while others will be toxic either way and should be avoided. So before eating any sprouts, find out if that species is edible as a sprout.

BRUSSEL SPROUTS A LIFESAVER


A vegetable Kiwis love to hate may be a lifesaver.

Hamilton scientist Rex Munday has found brussels sprouts are great at warding off bladder cancer.

In a two-year experiment set to continue, Dr Munday, a senior scientist at AgResearch at Ruakura, found rats fed with ground broccoli sprouts, which are in the same family as brussels sprouts, were 50 per cent less likely to develop bladder cancer.Bl cancer is diagnosed in more than 300,000 people internationally every year and is the fourth most common cancer in men and the eighth most common in women

international team of researchers has found that vegetables from the cabbage family, such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and watercress, can protect against bladder cancer.

The researchers led by New Zealand scientist Dr. Rex Munday discovered that an extract of broccoli sprouts can halve the incidence of bladder cancer in an animal model.

HISTORY


The origin of Brussels sprouts is unknown, and the first mention of them can be traced to the late 16th century in Belgium, specifically to a region near its capital, Brussels, after which they are named. Their use spread across Europe during World War 1. Brussels sprouts are now cultivated throughout Europe and the United States. In the U.S., almost all Brussel sprouts are grown in California.

RESEARCH


Research published in the International Journal of Cancer shows that Brussels sprouts protect against bladder cancer as well. Brussels sprout`s bladder cancer properties appear to come from their high levels isothiocyanates, which are potent anti-carcinogens. Isothiocyanates travel through the bladder to be excreted, making them particularly powerful against this form of cancer.

Sulforaphane is released by Brussels sprouts and has been proven to trigger the liver to produce enzymes that detoxify the body of cancer-causing chemicals They have been shown to inhibit chemically-induced breast cancers in animal studies.

Research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle studied 1,000 men. Those who ate three or more servings of cruciferous vegetables each week had a 44% lower prostate cancer risk.

BRUSSEL SPROUTS WITH DRUGS KILL CANCER


NaturalNews) Eating brussels sprouts and cabbage could help kill cancer cells when combined with traditional chemotherapy, according to new research by British scientists.

A study conducted by University of Leicester researchers and recently presented at the National Cancer Research Conference in Britain found that a naturally occurring compound in green leafy vegetables such as brussels sprouts and cabbage -- indole-3-carbinol (I3C) -- could be a powerful cancer fighter when used in combination with chemotherapy drugs

The researchers fed breast cancer cells 300 to 400 mg of I3C -- which equals roughly a shopping cart full of cabbages -- and found that after supplementation, the cells were then more easily killed when exposed to chemotherapy drugs.


BRUSSEL SPROUTS AND COLON, LIVER


www.whfoods.com

Brussels sprouts' glucosinolates have been shown to help prevent the development of colon cancer in response to exposure to heterocyclic amines, the carcinogenic compounds produced when meat is grilled or otherwise charbroiled. In an animal study published in Carcinogenesis , researchers looked at the effects of drinking water supplemented with Brussels sprouts or red cabbage juices on the liver and colon of laboratory animals that were also given a heterocyclic amine carcinogen.

Brussels sprouts reduced the development of pre-cancerous cells 41-52% in the colon and 27-67% in the liver, and drastically diminished the size (85-91%) of pre-cancerous lesions in the liver. Red cabbage moderately decreased (19-50%) the number of pre-cancerous lesions that developed in the liver and markedly reduced (41-83%) the size of those that did occur. These highly protective effects are due to crucifers' ability to significantly increase the activity of enzymes involved in both Phase I (CYP4501A2) and Phase II (glucuronidation via UDPGT-2) detoxification.

CAUTION


Brussel sprouts must not be boiled for this would lose 77% of its cancer fighting ingredients. They can be steamed, baked, stir fry or microwaved.

"Not only does boiling Brussels sprouts rob them of any taste, it also destroys their ability to fight cancer! At the University of Warwick in England, researchers have just discovered that boiling cruciferous vegetables – Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower – depletes 77 percent of its glucosinolates. These powerful phytochemicals reduce the risk of cancer by signaling our genes to increase levels of the body’s natural detoxification enzymes, which alter gene expression and help clear carcinogenic substances from the body more rapidly.

Healthier cooking options include: roasting, steaming, stir-frying and microwaving. Apparently, these methods had no effect on the cancer-fighting compounds. Other researchers found that shredding Brussels sprouts helps release a sulfur-containing compound called sinigrin, which also detoxifies a variety of carcinogens and enhances the body’s ability to fight lung, colon, breast, ovarian and bladder cancers. It performs this daunting task by initiating an intricate chemical dance that inhibits cell division (mitosis) and stimulates programmed cell death (apoptosis) in human tumor cells."

BRUSSEL SPROUTS HEAL 5 TYPES OF CANCER


Praise and thank God for His ingenuity in creating the Brussels sprouts which can cure 5 types of cancer, namely, bladder, breast, colon, prostate and liver cancer. No other gods are like our one and only true Almighty God with His limitless power and love for His people can perform such a miracle as this common Brussel Sprouts to preserve life from the most harmful, insidious and treacherous disease of mankind.

God had set up a roadmap of what human beings should eat from the very beginning in the creation of the world but people in their own wisdom decided to act in their own wisdom and forsook the way which God had shown to them to their own detriment. God has revealed His secrets to those who reseached through the ages and now man is reaping the benefits of the research. Man is learning through the hard way through trials and tribulation.

May we learn from our own mistakes what the Bible foretold in ages long ago. Come and worship the One and Only True God. Forsake your false gods and follow the Living God of all ages.

What you think also kills cancer. Don't feed your body surgar because cancer thrives on sugar. I love brussel sprouts and have only had them boiled. I will try them seamed or some other way. My problem is my Ulcerative Colitis and havig a really big problem with eating vegetables that aren't cooked.

Sugar seems to be bad for cholesterol too. Instead of boiling brussel sprouts, you can try stir fry or cutting the brussel sprouts in half so they can be cooked in a shorter period. Have fun trying different ways of cooking.

Very true. People are more interested in prolonging their lives and are turning to natural remedies rather than in medicine. Natural foods are on the whole non-toxic whereas medicine may have side effects.

Hey on the Bible-tip there's this organic bread at foodforlife.com and it's got all kinds of sprouted grains and amino acids-and the breads are named after Bible verses. My favorite bread is the Ezekiel 4:9 bread. I eat it with some garlic and apple cider dressing (see garlic-expressions.com). It's great and super healthy! Great hub. I love to see healthy hubs promoting herbs and green leafy things. Cheers!

    I never understood why people hate brussel sprouts. Ever watch full house with bob saget? His character hated it. I ate it at home and I never thought it tasted bad. But then again I grew up in a house where if I didn't like something, tough luck. So I never developed a picky eating habit.

    I love brussel sprouts! I made some last night from a recipe I got off the web and they were sooooooo good! I thought about those brussel sprouts all day today! I will be having them for dinner again tomorrow. Yummy!

    You can get the recipe from http://video.about.com/southernfood/60-Second-Brus...

    The recipe is called 60 Second Brussel Sprouts (because you only cook them for 60 seconds). It's a video demonstration (very easy to make). I substituted the recipe a little. I only used olive oil, garlic & a freshly squeezed lemon. I can't wait to have it again!

    I hope you try it! Enjoy!

    I happened to click on a link to your hubpage from hal licino's hub about natural cures for cancer.He thinks all natural cancer cure claims are bogus.

    I believe if we learn to eat healthy we can prevent cancer.

    From my perspective we can all get cancer if we eat poorly.

    Maybe being a vegan is the way to go.

    I read some information to the effect that when we eat only fruits nuts grains and vegatables in the right proportions and combinations we can not only be healthier,but we don't have to kill any plants in the process.Think about it,even though trees that produce fruits,nuts and plants produce food we can were originally designed to consume they don't have to die in the process.Even if some plants like wheat,corn,rice and other grains die after they reproduce,their life cycle is very short anyway.Although some plants if grown in their indiginous climate will go on growing if their root system is left intact So ,you could say,if the animals like humans who eat only vegan foods ,could be called "service to other" beings.

    .Animals that eat other animals ,usually only eat the weak,old ,or imfirmed prey ,but they still take away life in order to survive .They could be considered "service to self" beings

    The ones that are the strongest among the apes usually eat mostly fruits and nuts and greenery.

     yet chimpanzees have been known to kill and eat other chimps,or their relatives such as monkeys on occasion for what ever reason.

    Some people say meat eaters are aggressive.Well I suppose if you kill another animal ,you would be considered aggressive.Sounds logical to me.

    I wonder how often other carivores get cancer? .

    I have always loved brussel sprouts but unfortunately I was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma in July of 2008. Using a holistic approach I was cured in just a couple of weeks according to blood tests at the time. In march of 2009, I had a needle biopsy that was 100% negative followed by further blood tests this past June that also showed that my cancer was still cured. I am set for my 6 month checkup and blood tests next week. I have continued taking my holistic cure each day since about the middle of November 2008. I wrote all about it on a hub page if you want to just click on surfzen.

    surfzen,

    Thanks for your comments. I have already read your hub and Kelly Eidem's on cancer cure. Kelly Eidem also commented on one of my hubs on food and cancer.

    Four members of my family had four different types of cancer, breast cancer, cancer of the womb, prostate cancer and colorectal cancer. The two with prostate cancer and colorectal cancer survived after operation, but are very conscious of what food they eat. They do drink lemon grass drinks.

    The one with colorectal cancer was cancer free for two years but recurred. He was recommended for chemotherapy, but he asked not to have it for six months, and eating lots of fruits and vegetables. He read books, surfed the net, etc and said that the best thing for him was to eat all types of fruit (black, red, yellow, blue) and vegetables.

    After six months, the doctor told him the cancer was in remission and he is continuing his own diet.

    Because of the cancer gene in our family history, I have written 11 hubs concerning food and cancer. It may interest you to look into them.

    The highest score on food and cancer is about my 98 year old uncle who eats one clove of raw garlic every day. The highest score reached was 95. He is still living surviving his wife, a son and a daughter.

    God be blessed that you now believe in God.
