Super-Nutritious Broccoli Salad with Apples and Cranberries

69 Broccoli Salad With Apples And Cranberries | Super-Nutritious Broccoli Salad With Apples And Cranberries | National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation

Broccoli contains some extraordinary compounds that have been shown to reduce DNA mutation, neutralize carcinogenic substances, trigger apoptosis in cancer cells, help prevent the development of benign tumors into malignant tumors, and help prevent the spread of cancer from one organ to another. The cancer-fighting potential of raw broccoli—which this recipe calls for—appears to be particularly high: according to one study, cooking may destroy as much as 90% of sulforaphane—the key anti-cancer substance in broccoli. Besides broccoli, this salad boasts a number of other anti-cancer foods, including cranberries (rich in ellagic acid), sunflower seeds (packed with antioxidants such as vitamin E and selenium), and apples and red onions (excellent dietary sources of quercetin).
