This is a great discovery if you live in a polluted city.
New research from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has found that sulforaphane, a compound found in broccoli, helps the body to excrete pollutants from the body.
Conducted in one of the most polluted regions of China, the study found that subjects who drank half a cup of broccoli sprout beverage excreted high levels of benzene, a carcinogen, and acrolein, a lung irritant.
A study from the World Health Organisation this year suggests that around 1 in 8 global deaths (7 million deaths every year) are the result of exposure to air pollution.
Diets rich in cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, have previously been found to reduce the risk of several chronic diseases, including cancer.
