Eat three servings of cruciferous vegetables.

This type of vegetables may prevent DNA damage, activate defenses against pathogens and pollutants, prevent lymphoma, boost your liver detox enzymes, target breast cancer stem cells, and more. Cruciferous vegetables contain the sulforaphane enzyme that helps protects your brain and your eyesight, reduces nasal allergy inflammation, manages type 2 diabetes, and helps treat autism. It may work as a detoxicant. The healthiest one is probably broccoli, and it’s recommended to eat some every day.
