Eat your Broccoli…

Mom always said to eat your vegetables.  Now, new studies suggest that wearing it is just as beneficial.  Many of us have a difficult time eating broccoli.  We know that broccoli is good for us.  It’s high in fiber, has lots of vitamin E, and minerals.  But would you would you wear it?

Here comes the geeky science stuff.  So, close your ears for the next couple of sentences if you don’t care about the science of it.  Broccoli has a chemical called sulforaphane, which is linked to some cancer-fighting properties.  Scientists from University of Arizona Cancer Center and John Hopkins University have found that sulforaphane activates a cancer-fighting gene Nrf2.  They are currently testing this chemical in a topical solution.  So, what does that mean?  Broccoli is good for you, inside and out!

…Wear your Broccoli

Are Broccoli-based sunscreens on the horizon?  The tests that these scientists are conducting will determine if the chemical in broccoli could be used as a cancer-fighting sunscreen.  And unlike some of the better sunscreens on the market, broccoli-based sunscreen may be more affordable because of the cost of broccoli itself.  The uses of the broccoli compound could be endless.  Beauty products, medical topical solutions, burn creams, are just a few of the possibilities.

But, will this sunscreen provide the necessary protection needed by patients with Xeroderma Pigmentosum?  How will the sensitive nature of an XP Patient’s skin take to broccoli compound?  We’ll have to wait to for the results of the tests before we will find out.

Find out more about Xeroderma Pigmentosum and how to you can help by going to XP Family Support Group’s website.
