The latest research found that eating watercress every day can prevent breast cancer. Researchers at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom have found that the “superfood” of watercress can “close” the transmission of certain protein signals in the body, thereby killing breast cancer cells with a lack of blood and oxygen supply.
The researchers asked volunteers to mix 80 grams of watercress into the salad every day. Through blood tests, it was found that the number of molecules in the blood of the volunteers who resisted cancer increased significantly after eating the watercress for several hours. In order to grow, breast cancer cells send signals to normal tissues around them, “requesting” nutritional supplies. The phenethyl isothiocyanate in the watercress can block this signal. Watercress is one of the best anti-breast cancer foods in nature. It has a special spicy taste and it is the “active ingredient” of phenethyl isothiocyanate.
