Cancer-fighting 'superbroccoli' goes on market

A CANCER and heart diseasefighting 'superbroccoli' goes on sale in the UK today, writes John von Radowitz.

The vegetable looks the same as normal broccoli but contains boosted levels of a health-giving nutrient. Research suggests the plant chemical, glucoraphanin, may protect the body against heart disease and some types of cancer.

The new broccoli, called Beneforte, contains two to three times more glucoraphanin than standard broccoli and will be sold in Marks & Spencer stores.
