Broccoli Sprouts May Be Germ Fighters

Eating broccoli sprouts may be an effective way to control the germ that causes most peptic ulcers and is strongly associated with stomach cancer, a small study has found. In the study, published in the April issue of Cancer Prevention Research, researchers examined 50 people who were infected with the germ, Helicobacter pylori, and divided them into two groups. Over eight weeks, one group ate two and a half ounces of broccoli sprouts a day while the other consumed an equal amount of alfalfa sprouts.
