Cabbage belong to cruciferous family. Cruciferous vegetables are a Charlie’s best friend, they pull out radiation from the thyroid that’s gotten there from dental and medical exposure. Cruciferous help stave off a variety of cancers including breast cancer, reproductive cancers (ovarian, uterine, cervical), brain cancer, intestinal cancers and lung cancer.

The coloring agents that give this cruciferous its red-purple hue are at the top of the heap when it comes to disease-fighting pigments.The sulfur in the cabbage carries the petrochemicals from these pigments into the liver with great ease, making red cabbage one of the most rejuvenating foods for the liver. Red cabbage can help regard and reverse scar tissue in the liver.  (Anthony William)
