Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S., has created one of the most vital books on the health of your family you will ever find, The 150 Healthiest Food on Earth. The lavishly illustrated, 358-page weighty tome gives you more vital information on foods that can keep your family healthy than any other publication I have ever come across. And I am always on the look out. I have given the book to family members and often advise it for others. I have now selected a “Great 10” list of food choices to share with you. My goal here is pass on ideas that perhaps you did not previously know about.
Horseradish: Johnny Bowden explains that a study from the University of Illinois shows that horseradish has substantial quantities of allyl isothiocyanate, which is believed to play a role in the prevention of tumors and in the suppression of tumor growth. Johnny continues in noting that Glucosinolates in food increase the liver’s ability to detoxify carcinogens. Horseradish contains 10 times more Glucosinolates than broccoli. Wasabi, or Japanese horseradish, contains isothiocyantes that have shown a significant anti-inflammatory effect and also killed many human stomach cancer cells in a test tube test.
