This Food Forces Your Body to Mop Up and
Kick Out Hidden Carcinogens
August 13th, 2014 by Holly Cornish
This simple food may be capable of squashing internal cancer cells in almost no time flat. It doesn’t cost much, either. And it’s available in any supermarket, anytime.
It was tested in one of China’s most polluted areas by scientists from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and showed astounding results.
Even if your environment is not as polluted as China’s, you can benefit from this superfood. Keep reading to find out how it can help you ’clean house’ and expel cancer cells from your body, no matter where you live or what your current risk of cancer may be.
Breast Cancer Survivor was told:
“You’ll be dead in a year”
(Pssst!! That was 12 years ago!)?
Doctors didn’t give Wiltrude much hope when they diagnosed her with cancer in the year 2000. Wiltrude, a German psychologist, never thought cancer would happen to her. But it did. And it came as a big shock.
One doctor told her, “You’ll be dead in a year.” Late stage breast cancer is virtually incurable using conventional treatments. Even M.D.s admit it. They talk about “buying you more time.” (Don’t count on it. The evidence shows you’re better off doing nothing than chemo.)
When Wiltrude told her doctor she was going to try alternative treatments, he said, “You are committing suicide with what you’re doing.” But she was determined to find a way to beat her cancer.
Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, this European woman came across a book by my good friend Bill Henderson, one of the smartest and wisest people I know when it comes to cancer treatment.
She tried Bill’s top, number one recommendation — a gentle treatment you can do at home for just $5.15 a day. What’s more, the cost goes down to $3.50 after six weeks because you just need a maintenance dose. And it even tastes good.
Not only has Wiltrude passed the five-year cancer survival mark, she’s survived for 12 years. We just interviewed her recently for this publication. The radiologist who tests her every year told her, “You’re the only one with this kind of result.”

When I ask him about some of the treatments that top alternative doctors use, Bill sort of shrugs and says, “They’re fine, but why bother? My treatment works, you can do it yourself, and it costs practically nothing.”
He’s coached thousands of cancer patients with all different types and stages of cancer. Most of the people who follow the detailed, specific plan in this Special Report get over their cancer and live for years.
“Almost any kind of cancer is reversible,” says Bill. “I never give up on anyone.”
As everyone knows, China has a severe pollution problem, one that’s nearly impossible to avoid.
So Johns Hopkins scientists were curious to find out if eating certain foods could help mitigate the harm. They suspected, and are now convinced, that this superfood can.
It’s an established fact that cruciferous veggies such as broccoli are rich in compounds that can protect you from cancer. But you can go one better than broccoli. Here’s how…
One of your best ways to detoxify pollutants
Broccoli sprouts in particular have a compound called glucoraphanin, which when chewed or swallowed creates another compound called sulforaphane. Sulforaphane amps up your body’s ability to detoxify various kinds of pollutants.
In the Chinese study, about 300 men and women in Jiangsu Province drank one of two beverages. The control group drank sterilized water, pineapple, and lime juice. The test group drank the same, with the addition of dissolved freeze-dried broccoli sprout powder.
The researchers tested the blood and urine of all participants. Those drinking the broccoli beverage expelled the carcinogen benzene at a 61% higher rate, and acrolein at a 23% higher rate.
Your hidden exposure to these same toxins
Now, those pollutants may not mean much to you. But you’re exposed to them every day, unless you’ve been living in a bubble. Here’s how…
Benzene is a widely used industrial chemical. It’s found in crude oil and is a major component of gasoline. It’s also found in plastics, resins, rubber lubricants, dyes, detergents, drugs, pesticides, and synthetic fibers.
It’s probably in your home or garage right now. Check the ingredients in glues, adhesives, cleaning products, paint strippers, tobacco, and gasoline.
Your greatest exposure is from breathing gasoline fumes when you fill your car. But you get it from exhaust during your daily commute, or if you live near highways or industrial plants.
It can pass through your skin when you handle gasoline or other solvents.
Acrolein is also a pollutant. It’s a clear or yellow liquid with a burnt, sweet, pungent odor. It is released from burning plants, like tobacco.
But acrolein is also used to make other chemicals. It is present in livestock feed, pesticides, and is released when gasoline and oil are burned. Acrolein may also be found in small amounts in fried foods, cooking oils, and roasted coffee.
The abundance of these carcinogens in your daily life means that being able to eat a single food to remove them from your body is a useful trick to have up your sleeve.
Could be a key enemy
of stomach cancer, too
A small Japanese pilot study of 50 people suggests that eating 2.5 ounces of broccoli sprouts daily for two months could protect against H. pylori, a dangerous stomach bug with a strong link to stomach cancer, gastritis, and ulcers. Japanese have a high incidence of chronic H. pylori infection.
Eating broccoli sprouts helps infected people shed H. pylori via their stool.
A previous animal study showed that when H. pylori-infected mice sipped broccoli sprout smoothies for 8 weeks, there was up to a four-fold increase in activity of two key enzymes. Plus, the number of H. pylori bacteria in their stomachs decreased by almost a hundred-fold, while not changing at all in the control group.
H. pylori is classified as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization. It can thrive in the stomach lining despite the fact that normal stomach acids rival the strength of car battery acids. The microbe afflicts roughly half the world’s population.
Researchers are reluctant to suggest that eating broccoli sprouts will protect anyone from stomach cancer or cure GI-tract diseases. But the fact that eating the sprouts reduced infection and inflammation levels makes me glad I include this food in my diet.
Sprouts have a hundred times the
benefits of mature broccoli
Small quantities of fresh broccoli sprouts can contain as much cancer protection as large amounts of mature broccoli. Its nutrients, especially sulforaphane, are estimated to be 20 to 100 times more potent than full-grown broccoli.
Just 0.17 ounce of sprouts contains the same amount of glucoraphanin found in 5.2 ounces of mature broccoli.
Researchers say you’d have to eat about two pounds of regular broccoli a week to reduce your risk of colon cancer by 50%. Few people are going to do that, making the sprouts an efficient alternative.
Additionally, regular broccoli can vary wildly in its enzyme-inducing ability.
Fortunately, fresh broccoli sprouts (grown in just 5 days) offer a great alternative. You could eat 100 times less of it than grown-up broccoli, and still claim the same cancer-fighting benefits. Sprouts are far more uniform in potency, too.
Animal studies show that small quantities of broccoli sprout extracts radically reduced the size of mammary tumors induced by chemical pollutants. The Chinese study seems to confirm that result.
One of the best things about chemo-protectors
Using foods to boost your body’s own natural defenses against carcinogens can be very effective. Scientists dub it ‘chemo-protection’.
One of the best things about chemo-protection is that it’s almost never organ-specific. Instead it offers overall cancer protection because it blocks a cascade of steps common to cancer formation in any part of your body.
We’ve written about chemo protective foods many times. But broccoli sprouts may be one of the best.
Current studies suggest that broccoli sprouts’ sulforaphane can effectively detoxify carcinogens, aid in fighting stomach cancer, and inhibit tumor progression and activity in many other forms of cancer.
Reap these additional benefits
of broccoli sprouts
Besides being chemo-protective, studies suggest that broccoli sprouts can also:
Amazing superfood in just 3 to 5 days
You may be able to get broccoli sprouts fresh at your local farmer’s market or supermarket. But if not, don’t worry… You can grow your own for pennies per serving, and they’ll be ready-to-eat in just days.
You’ll need organic broccoli sprouting seeds, potting soil, shallow containers for planting, and plastic wrap. (Note: Many commercial seeds are treated with chemicals to make them last longer. Those chemicals are highly concentrated in sprouts, so please choose organic chemical-free seeds.)
Just one pound of seeds should yield about ten pounds of sprouts – with the nutritional value of about a thousand pounds of full-grown broccoli.
Follow these seven simple steps to enjoying your own broccoli sprouts in three to five days:
Store fresh sprouts in the refrigerator for up to a week. If they feel slimy, toss them.
Eat them raw for maximum nutritional intake. And by the way, this is a fun project to do with kids, and gets them on board for eating them.
If you can’t find fresh broccoli sprouts and aren’t inclined to grow them yourself, you can use freeze-dried powder or capsules from Amazon or other online retailers. But with one caveat…
The enzyme that promotes broccoli sprouts’ most healthful effects, myrosinase, is often absent in broccoli powder. Myrosinase is the precursor to sulforaphane. You still need to combine powdered broccoli with broccoli sprouts (or mustard, radishes, arugula, or wasabi) for this benefit.
Eating broccoli sprouts could be one of the most simple, yet potent ways to gather up carcinogens and usher them out of your body. Ask yourself: Would you rather be a cancer magnet or a cancer destroyer? As for me, I’ll opt for the latter.
