Research studies presented at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) meeting in Baltimore has shown that eating vegetarian food protects the host body from cancer occurrence. Two studies has shown the benefits of eating broccoli sprouts which is found to be effective against infection of the mouth which may lead to stomach and oral cancers. An other study has shown that the chemicals in the sprouts have found to be effective in reducing the incidence of stomach cancers and skin cancer.

Large number of recent research has focused on the use of cabbage which is found to have anti-breast cancer properties the scientists have found a chemical in cabbage which has anticancer property, even a recent study reported in our website links to the use of eating cabbages reduces the incidence of lung cancer in which eating cabbage reduced the incidence of lung cancer in people who have inactived genes of GSTM1 and GSTT1 and the study results are not correlated to smoking, while these two genes GSTM1 and GSTT1 acts as natural detoxifier of reduces the toxic effects and the genes produce enzymes which eliminate the isothiocyanates in blood and cleans the body

Elizabeth Tait of the American Association for Cancer Research said, "For years, the conventional wisdom was that all vegetables are good and that may be true, but now we're finding that specific chemicals in these vegetables can fight specific cancers."
