The broccoli and similar vegetables, can offer special protection against a cancer for smokers.</p> <p>People, who smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day, are considered as heavy smokers. Broccoli and others so-called cruciferous vegetables, such as cabbage, a cauliflower and Brussels sprout, are known for the ability to decrease a risk of cancer development, by the compound called isothiocyanates.</p> <p>"The most essential influence was on heavy smokers" - Li Tang from Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York, speaks.</p> <p>The people who ate cruciferous vegetables, especially uncooked, had a less danger of disease by a cancer on 20 - 55 percent, than those who did not use these products at all or rare. This statement was made by Li Tang at the session of the American Association on Cancer Research.</p> <p>"Essential influence has been noted only among the former smokers and present smokers. Whether we do not see considerable dependence at those people who had never smoke" - Tang said.</p> <p>These conclusions are not the sufficient reason to make their recommendations of public health services, but nevertheless. If you smoke long time enough, nothing can help you.</p> <div style="text-align:center;"><img src="/img_news/broccoli.jpg" alt="" border="0" /></div>
