Surprising Discovery Reveals How Broccoli Fights Cancer

Scientists at OSU discovered that sulforaphane significantly reduces the expression of lncRNAs in prostate cancer cells, reducing the cancer cells’ ability to form colonies by as much as 400 percent.

“It’s obviously of interest that this dietary compound, found at some of its highest levels in broccoli, can affect lncRNAs. This could open the door to a whole range of new dietary strategies, foods or drugs that might play a role in cancer suppression or therapeutic control.” Lead OSU investigator Emily Ho, Ph.D
