English scientists have found that substances contained in conventional cabbage, protects from the appearance of her cancer rectum and colon. This is stated in the results of the research Institute Francis Crick in London, published the scientific journal Immunity. According to scientists, to change genetic factors in which cancer develops, people can not. However, the diet containing certain foods can afect the cells of the digestive system, as well as on the species composition of its microflora, and thereby to resolve the processes leading to cancer.
According to one of the researchers, Gita Stockinger, in recent years science has opened variety of microbes, directly associated with the development of cancer in vivo. The authors of this project experimented with mice and found that animals suffering from cancer of the rectum, tumor development was stopped under the influence of substances I3C, which is present in high concentration in normal cabbage, and in two other species, broccoli and kohlrabi.
It turned out that this compound reduces the level of inflammation and contributes to a significant improvement of the intestinal microflora. Healthy rodents it effectively protects from the appearance of the tumor in the rectum. Failure I3C, on the contrary, provoked the uncontrolled division of stem cell, thus creating conditions for the development of cancer. Rodents, in body of which there was a shortage of this substance, quickly became victims of cancer
