Dear patient,


thank you for your interest in our research on the broccoli content sulforaphane. Before we provide you information about edibles containing sulforaphane and interesting facts about diet and cancer, we have to point out, that we were only in laboratory tests able to demonstrate the efficacy against the most aggressive tumor stem cells of pancreatic cancer. Although the results are promising, they can only be transferred into the treatment of cancer patients, when sufficient data from patient studies is available. Regardless of the expected study results you can include sulforaphane on the daily diet.
