Broccoli Juice Beats Cancer

A British granddad claims that the natural health remedy broccoli juice is helping him beat bladder cancer. Mr. Ray Wiseman’s wife started making broccoli juice for him after doctors gave him little hope of survival when his cancer was diagnosed 5 years ago.

Recent scans show that his cancer has stopped spreading and Ray puts his amazing improvement down to his daily dose of broccoli juice that was recommended by a friend as a powerful natural health remedy.

Researchers believe a substance called isothiocyanate in the broccoli activates some genes that fight cancer and switching off others that cause it to spread.

All cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts contain natural chemicals that can enhance DNA repair which could stop them becoming cancerous. They contain several compounds that improve the liver detox function which will help get rid of cancer causing toxins.

Researchers at John Hopkins University have discovered that fresh broccoli sprouts contain as much protection as the vegetable itself.

Broccoli however is a powerhouse of nutrition. It is full of beta-carotene, vitamins B1 and C, the minerals calcium, sulfur and potassium and an excellent source of fiber and is 45% protein.

We all know that we should eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day for health but the average adult in the USA manages just one and half portions while 60% of British people only eat one portion a day. The majority of people are ignoring their health and eating too much of the wrong kinds of foods.

Vegetable juices and green smoothies are your secret natural health remedy for good health. By juicing or blending (use a high powered blender like a Vitamix) a variety of vegetables each day you can dramatically increase your intake of nutrients, antioxidants and enzymes which prevent disease and aging.

Broccoli juice is an acquired taste and Mrs. Wiseman added carrot and apple juice to the broccoli juice to make it more palatable. Organic vegetables are best. Here is a recipe you could try:

60ml (2 fl oz) of carrot juice
60ml (2 fl oz) of apple juice
60ml (2 fl oz) of beetroot juice
60ml (2 fl oz) of broccoli juice
½ – 1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
A squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Green juices and smoothies are loaded with vitamins, amino acids, chlorophyll and mineral such as iron and calcium. Vegetables and their juices are a great way to keep your body alkaline and flooded with oxygen. Cancer cannot thrive in these conditions.

A spokesman for Cancer Research UK said that there is a lot of research that is focused on broccoli and the healing properties of vegetables. There is plenty of evidence that the chance of developing cancer can be greatly reduced by a diet high in vegetables and fruit. Studies have found that boiling broccoli can reduce its anti-cancer compounds and that microwaving it destroys its antioxidant effects. Steaming briefly is probably the best way to cook it to preserve its natural heath benefits.

    Hi David
    That’s a good question but difficult to answer precisely. It all depends on the type of juicer you have and the juiciness of the vegetables you are using.
    You will get more juice from a non centrifugal type of juicer.
    As a general guide approximately 4 oz carrot, apple or beet will give you 2 oz juice but you will need about 10oz or more of broccoli tops to get 2oz juice.
    The measurements don’t have to be precise.
    Hope that helps.

    Hey, I went to check out your recipe book . html file and it says not found. Just wondering if you changed the link but didn’t update it as I’m interested in recipes for health. I make my own juices in the mornings but thought it would be nice to go by recipes since I want to incorporate healthy varieties but still make it taste better than some of mine have turned out.

    Thanks for pointing that out Jeremy.
    I have since written a Detox eBook and am giving away my recipe book as a bonus. It makes more sense to put the two together.

    Hi not sure if you will still recieve this but I was just wondering if what I do is effective at creating broccoli juice. What i do is add 1 cup of water to a blender and then one full crown with the stem. then i add a handful of spinach and blend it. I then add a tiny bit of fruit juice so i can actually stand the taste (haha). Is this as effective as using a juicer ?

      Jesse, if you have a high powered blender then you should still get a lot of nutrients from the broccoli.
      You will get more juice from the stalks if you use a regular juicer. If you use a VitaMix or Blendtec then
      its probably best not to strain the juice as you will lose some of the nutrients released through the action of the blender.
