Broccoli: An Alternative Leukemia Treatment?

Recently, The Huffington Post published an article on the health benefits of eating cruciferous vegetables and their ability to kill off leukemia cells.

The Huffington Post says that the findings reveal that the vegetable’s sulforaphane compound killed the cancer cells, specifically for leukemia.
