Eating Broccoli Could Prevent Most Common Type Of Arthritis

Eating broccoli could help prevent the most common form of arthritis.

Researchers say a compound in the vegetable called sulforaphane, appears to slow the break down of cartilage in the joints associated with osteoarthritis.

The study found mice that consumed large amounts of broccoli had significantly less cartilage damage than those who ate smaller amounts.

There were similar results in cow and human cartilage as well and scientists are now planning a clinical trial for patients who are awaiting knee replacement surgery.
