Then the scientists adjusted the food subject, and depending on this they were divided into four groups depending on the type of diet:+
— a diet with normal fat content and carbohydrates,
— the same food, but added broccoli,
— a diet high in fat,
— a diet high in fat plus broccoli.
Over time in mice that were treated with no broccoli were appearing nodules in the liver, which could be a harbinger of including the cancer. However, when the diet of rodents added broccoli, nodules became smaller and some disappeared altogether.+
In addition, adding this vegetable in the diet resulted in improving the state of the liver in mice. The authors believe that broccoli will help to prevent the development of liver cancer in humans.+
— There are two probabilities when the liver begins to store fat first, when people consume a lot of food with high content of harmful fats and sugars, and the second is the abuse of alcohol, says Elizabeth Jeffery, Professor, University of Illinois and author of the study . — The first option is especially common among Americans and it leads to the fact that man no longer controls the amount of fat accumulated in his liver, and thus provoke the development of cancer. And just broccoli may be the first physician and helper in the fight against the disease.
