What, A New Kind of Broccoli?

Grocery shoppers be prepared! This fall you will find broccoli in your favorite supermarket under the brand name, Beneforte. British scientists have spent 14 years hybridizing this variety to contain 2-3 times the glucoraphanin of the ordinary variety. Glucoraphanin is a naturally occuring antioxidant that is believed to have significant health benefits. You can bet you will pay a premium for Beneforte, though. Studies are currently underway to test if this new variety is really better than the traditional ones.

PositiveTip: Beneforte or not, the evidence is strong that eating plenty of broccoli and other vegetables enhances your health.
