Veggies Like Broccoli, Cabbage May Help Fight Breast Cancer: Study

Previous studies of women in China, the United States and Sweden hinted that higher cruciferous vegetable intake could be linked with reduced risk of developing breast cancer, but the current research is among the first to examine women after a breast cancer diagnosis.

The findings are slated for presentation Tuesday at the American Association for Cancer Research meeting in Chicago.
