Cruciferous Vegetables

Cruciferous Vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables include but are not limited to: brussels sprouts, cabbage, bok choy, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, watercress, rutabaga, turnips, and mustard.  These vegetables are referred to as cruciferous because their flower petals are arranged in a cross shape (crucifer means cross-bearing).   They are high in antioxidants and sulfur.  Our bodies use sulfur to produce its own antioxidants.  So eat your veggies and postpone or avoid knee osteoarthritis surgery.  Seems like a reasonable trade.
