Savoy Cabbage

Food

Cabbage contains a long list of phytochemicals. Among the most beneficial are the indoles. These show promise as cancer-fighters because they block the conversion of the sex hormones into a more potent cancer-causing form. Cabbage can be consumed raw in sandwiches or in vegetable salads.

They can also be used in vegetable soups since indoles are not damaged by cooking.
