Many people are at a loss when it comes to eating healthy. While many of us are well aware of the beneficial health effects of fruits and green leafy vegetables not all of us know about the specific properties and plus points of rarely eaten vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower. Cancer prevention diet should certainly contain a lot of vegetables from the cruciferous family. As you would have probably guessed the above mentioned cauliflower and broccoli do belong to the cruciferous family of vegetables.
How do these seemingly innocuous vegetables achieve a major feat like preventing cancer? The answer is DIM. Well, though the term is DIM, the prospects are not all that dim and neither are the circumstances so grim if you decide to incorporate these vegetables in to your daily diet. So what exactly is DIM?
DIM is the acronym for Diindolylmethane. This DIM can not only put off or avert an attack or onset of the deadly disease called Cancer but can also efficiently kill cancer cells as proved in clinical research. So now you know that you need to stock up on these vegetables big time. The secret lies in eating these vegetables regularly because eating them just once in a blue moon would not translate in to any major cancer preventing benefits. DIM has also been found to be useful in preventing the enlargement of the prostate gland which is commonly found in the male sex above the age of 50.
