Broccoli Extract Inhibits Growth of Breast Cancer Cells
by Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, B.Sc. Pharmacy - September 10, 2009
Sulforaphane, an isothiocyanate found in cruciferous vegetables has been shown to inhibit the growth of chemically induced breast cancer tumors in rats. Sulforaphane induces phase 2 liver detoxification
enzymes and inhibits the growth of chemically induced mammary tumors n rats. Phase 2 liver detoxification
helps the liver remove toxic chemicals from the body.
Sulforaphane, a broccoli extract, inhibited the growth of breast cancer cells in rats and human cell
In this study
researchers found that Sulforaphane inhibits breast cancer cell growth,
activates apoptosis, inhibits histone deacetylase (HDAC), and decreases the expression of
key proteins involved in breast cancer proliferation in human breast cancer cells.
Researchers state “These results support testing
Sulforaphane in vivo (in the body) and warrant future studies examining the clinical potential of
Sulforaphane in human breast cancer.”

Natural Cancer Reports Pearl:
Sulforaphane helps the liver remove toxic chemicals and heterocyclic amnes from the
body. Sulforaphane improves the removal of heterocyclic amines that come from browning, grilling or burning meats
and other foods.
Hamburgers have a very high quantity of heterocyclic
amines. A hamburger patty is typically cooked at a very high temperature. The browning, charring or
blackening meat, vegetables and even the smoke contain the toxic heterocyclic amines.
If you have a personal history of breast, prostate or colon
cancer you can take a Sulforaphane capsule with your meals that contain grilled, broiled, baked or
fried foods. You should cook meats at low temperature. Don’t cook your meat well done or blackened. Use
olive oil based marinade on vegetables and meat prior to cooking to decrease browning.
