Broccoli May Ease Arthritis

A compound in broccoli may slow or even prevent the
progression of the most common form of arthritis. A new
study showed that sulforaphane slows the destruction of
cartilage in joints caused by osteoarthritis. The compound
is released when we eat cruciferous vegetables such as
Brussel sprouts, cabbage, and, in particular, broccoli. It
blocks enzymes that cause the breakdown of joints.
