PREVENTION OF LUNG AND COLON CANCER


SWEDES

WHAT IS SWEDES AND WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE: ALSO KNOWN AS RUTABAGAS-BELONG TO THE BRASSICACEAE FAMILY OF CRUCIFEROUS VEGETABLES, ALONG WITH BRUSSELS SPROUTS, CAULIFLOWER, KOHLRABI, MUSTARD GREENS, AND TURNIPS. LARGE AND ROUNDED, WITH YELLOW FLESH, IT LOOKS LIKE A LITTLE LIKE A TURNIP.

SWEDES LIKE ALL THE CRUCIFERS (NAMED AFTER THE CROSS-SHAPE OF THEIR 4-PETALLED FLOWERS),THEY ARE LINKED WITH LOWER RATES OF CANCER. LARGE-SCALE POPULATION STUDIES, PLUS EXPERIMENTAL LABORATORY TESTING, SUGGEST THAT EATING PLENTY OF CRUCIFERS MAY LOWER THE RISK OF LUNG AND COLON CANCER. THE LINK SEEMS TO BE DUE TO THEIR COMBINATION OF ANTIOXIDANTS AND INDOLE GLUCOSINOLATES. THEY ALSO TOP SUPPLIERS OF FOLATE AND IRON WHICH HELP PREVENT AND CORRECT ANAEMIA, AND ARE RICH IN POTASSIUM, WHICH CAN HELP AVOID AND REGULATE HIGH BLOD PRESSURE.

SWEDES HAVE STRONG,TURNIP-LIKE FLAVOUR.THEY CAN BE ROASTED, STEAMED, BAKED, OR MASED, AND THEY ADD PLENTY OF FLAVOUR AND NOURISHMENT TO SOUP AND CASSEROLES.

NOTE: INCASE YOU ARE FINDING IT DIFFICULT TO LOCATE WHERE TO BUY ANY OF THE HERBS(FOREIGN) HERE IN NIGERIA, PLEASE DO CONTACT ME .
