#HEALTH - Broccoli could be key in the fight against osteoarthritis

#HEALTH - Broccoli could be key in the fight against osteoarthritis | Scratch Cooking | Scoop.it

"A compound found in broccoli could be key to preventing or slowing the progress of the most common form of arthritis, according to new research led by the University of East Anglia (UEA).

 

Results from the laboratory study show that sulforaphane slows down the destruction of cartilage in joints associated with painful and often debilitating osteoarthritis. The researchers found that mice fed a diet rich in the compound had significantly less cartilage damage and osteoarthritis than those that were not.

 

The study, which also examined human cartilage cells and cow cartilage tissue, was funded by medical research charity Arthritis Research UK, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council's (BBSRC) Diet and Health Research Industry Club (DRINC) and The Dunhill Medical Trust." http://bit.ly/1chk4TB

“I’m obsessed with mayo right now. Ever since I found out that you can make mayo with an immersion blender, I want to make it every day. In every kind of flavor. So, that’s exactly what I did. And since it’s still 1,000 degrees in our house, I just bought a rotisserie chicken at the store and mixed it with my 30 second mayo and had a meal in less than 10 minutes.”
