regularly include cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli,
and cauliflower in the diet.  The main reason for this recommendation is due to the
content of a large amount of phytochemicals within the cabbage family.  Studies have
shown that the phytochemicals have anti-cancer properties.  

The higher the intake of cabbage-family vegetables, the lower the rates of cancer  
especially breast, lung, colon, and prostate cancers.  The glucosinolates in cabbage
function by increasing the antioxidant defense mechanisms, and also by improving the
body's ability to detoxify and eliminate harmful chemicals and hormones.  Studies
have also shown that cabbage is extremely effective in the treatment of peptic ulcers.
