Cabbage is good for the liver

The cabbage family (which includes Brussels sprouts, broccoli and rapini) protect us from cancer by stimulating the liver to produce enzymes to detoxify carcinogens. Among the common carcinogenic toxins that the liver faces are the heterocyclic amines that are created during the roasting of meat, known to promote colon cancer. A British study published in Carcinogenesis even showed that the beneficial effect of cabbage lasts for at least two weeks. Cabbage also limits the effect of coffee because it activates the liver to break down caffeine.
