Eating broccoli, one of the top “super foods,” and other cruciferous vegetables may improve your odds for breast cancer survival, a new study suggests.

In a study of women in China diagnosed with breast cancer, researchers found that women who consumed the most cruciferous vegetables were 62 percent less likely to die of breast cancer and 35 percent less likely to have a recurrence of the disease, compared with those who consumed the least.

The most common cruciferous vegetables that the women reported eating were mustard and turnip greens, bok choy, cauliflower and green cabbage. Kale, collard greens and arugula are other cruciferous vegetables.    http://consumer.healthday.com/Article.asp?AID=663406
