Women who have survived breast cancer might want to pile their plates up with Brussels sprouts this Christmas; a new study has shown that eating these and other cruciferous vegetables, as well as soy foods, could help to reduce some of the long-term side effects of cancer treatment. Lead study author Sarah Oppeneer Nomura, Ph.D. — of the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. — and her colleagues recently reported their findings in the journal Breast Cancer Research and Treatment.
