Broccoli and cabbage stop arteries getting blocked

Broccoli and cabbage stop arteries getting blocked image

Keeping our blood vessels healthy has become especially important in the Covid-19 epidemic—and eating Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cabbage every day is one of the best ways of protecting the whole cardiovascular system.

The cruciferous family of vegetables—which also includes kale, pak choy, radish and cauliflower—protects our arteries and heart, and they should be included in our daily diet. The vegetables are rick in vitamin K, and people who regularly eat them are far less likely to have a heart attack or stroke.

Researchers from the University of Western Australia have discovered that the vegetables stop arteries, and especially the aorta, from getting blocked with calcium. Looking at the health and diets of 684 older women, the researchers discovered that those eating cruciferous vegetables every day halved their risk of calcium build-up in the aorta, a major artery that takes blood away from the heart.

Those who ate the most vegetables—a quarter cup of steamed broccoli or half a cup of raw cabbage every day—had the lowest risk.

Read all about it - but only in WDDTY

From now on, you won't be able to buy WDDTY in a store, as we are reverting to a subscription-only magazine. The reason goes to the very heart of what this publication stands for. As a newsstand title, we were being censored in all sorts of subtle and not-so-subtle ways by a retail trade that chose never to support press freedoms. But we don't want to stop you from getting vital information which is why we've curated this special subscription offer just for you. By subscribing you can still get direct access to all this information every month, via a subscription, as thousands of others do.
