Cauliflower Benefits Against Cancer

Researchers Discover a Major Reason to Eat More Cauliflower

A study published in the European Journal of Cancer has provided further proof that cauliflower is the impressively versatile vegetable that should've never been so criminally underestimated. Conducted in 2015, the study found a considerable and surprising link between the consumption of fruit and white vegetables, namely cauliflower, and a lower risk of stomach cancer.

The researchers arrived at this conclusion by looking at over 32,000 gastric cancer cases and assessing their respective diets. During the initial information-gathering process, they found sodium and alcohol, specifically beer and liquor, to be particularly high-risk dietary factors.

They then discovered that foods rich in vitamin C tend to have a "protective effect" against gastric cancer. Such foods tend to be fruit and white vegetables that include potatoes, endives, onions, and our favourite, cauliflower.

While we didn't really need further reasons to enjoy the fibrous gem — hello, cauliflower pizza — the study serves as another reminder to continue using it in our recipes along with its fellow adaptable veggies.
