Broccoli contains some extraordinary compounds that have been shown to reduce DNA mutation, eliminate carcinogenic toxins, induce apoptosis in cancerous cells, help prevent the development of benign tumors into malignant tumors, and help prevent the spread of cancer
from one organ to another. The cancer-fighting potential of raw broccoli—which this recipe calls for—appears to be particularly high: according to one study, cooking may destroy as much as 90% of sulforaphane—the key anti-cancer substance in broccoli. Besides broccoli, this salad boasts a number of other anti-cancer foods, including cranberries (rich in ellagic acid), sunflower seeds (packed with antioxidants such as vitamin E and selenium), and apples and red onions (excellent dietary sources of quercetin).

While low in calories, arugula – also known as rocket – is loaded with health promoting phytochemicals. It is a particularly good source of glucosinolates which turn into isothiocyanates by the enzyme myrosinase when you chew arugula. Isothiocyanates are known to neutralize carcinogens and to inhibit cancer cell proliferation. Also the tomatoes and avocados in this salad possess anti-cancer and antioxidant properties.
