Disease-Fighting Veggies

New research shows how vegetables help reverse or prevent cancers, Alzheimer’s, and other age-related diseases.

University of Alabama of Birmingham researchers have discovered how certain vegetables and foods such as broccoli, soybeans, kale, cabbage, green tea, and turmeric reverse or prevent cancer and age-related diseases. Technically termed an “epigenetic diet,” compounds in such foods gradually suppress negative gene expressions that cause diseases such as Alzheimer’s. “The epigenetics diet can be adopted easily, because the concentrations of the compounds needed for a positive effect are readily achievable,” says lead author of the study and assistant research professor Syed Meeran. Epigenetic changes do not alter DNA, but indirectly influence expression of genes over time.
