Broccoli is good for you

Broccoli is good for you. The green vegetable and its relatives in the Brassica family contain natural chemical compounds known as phenolics, including well-known health boosters like the so-called flavanoids. Phenolic compounds are known to have strong antioxidant properties that may lower the chances of contracting a number of degenerative diseases. Eating broccoli and other foods that are rich in phenolics has been linked with a reduced risk of type II diabetes, a variety of different cancers, asthma and coronary heart disease.
