ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – Take a deep breath and eat some broccoli. The green vegetable not only helps prevent heart disease and repairs skin damage but broccoli can also protect our bodies from air pollution. A new study finds broccoli compounds help us flush out the chemicals we breathe in from paint thinners, car exhaust, tobacco smoke, and power plant emissions. The more bitter the broccoli, the better.
You’ll need to eat almost one and a half cups per day.
