Additional notes: This Markito Nutrition lecture teaches you the truth about the science on breast cancer and empowers you with the knowledge you need to dramatically lower your risk.
The video mentions briefly that broccoli sprouts are well documented to help prevent as well as fight cancer. Broccoli sprouts can provide the body with up to 100 times the cancer fighting sulfurophane than mature broccoli. In other words, you could easily get as much benefit from 1 ounce of broccoli sprouts as you would if you ate 3-6 pounds of fully grown broccoli (©Johns Hopkins University 1997). The scientific research supporting the use and benefits of broccoli sprouts is simply incredible. Here are links to a few studies:

This is really SAD and a little scary…
Good job. Thanks a lot.
+Raffaela Garcez Thanks Raffaela. I agree that it’s scary to think that the quality of healthcare we receive often takes a backseat to greed and profit. This is why I often repeat that education is our first step to establishing a stronger healthcare system, and it all starts when the public begins to demand better. All the best.

Overall well done, educational and to the point. I like the SAD acronym for the american diet. It kinds of says it all, don’t you think!
Thank you for your feedback Danielle. It’s time we woke up to the fact that people who eat the reverse of the Standard American Diet enjoy a significantly lower risk for just about every known disease.
Meanwhile, politicians continue to have heated debates regarding healthcare costs without ever addressing the billions in government subsidies awarded to the same food industries that are making people sick. As an example, sixty three percent of the U.S. government food subsidies go directly or indirectly to subsidize the meat and dairy industry, while less than one percent goes to fruit and vegetable cultivation. What this means, essentially, is that American tax dollars are spent to help make Americans sicker by artificially bringing down the price of unhealthy foods. Any debate on healthcare must begin by addressing these subsidies, and on what can be done to shift away from a disease causing diet by making healthy choices more accessible and affordable to all.
