1 – Radishes and cancer
As with all the other cruciferous vegetables, radishes have compounds which exhibit cancer fighting potential.
Radishes are full of vitamin C and have indoles and bioflavonoids which can help with the prevention of cancer.
Daikon radishes also have an enzyme called myrosi-nase which is believed to assist with digestion, and converts to isothiocyanates and thiocyanates in the presence of water, which could be involved in the anti-cancer benefits of the radish.
Researchers have also discovered that combing radishes with broccoli boosts the already potent cancer fighting power of the broccoli.
