Afraid of aging? Broccoli has plenty of antioxidants for fighting against free radicals and helps prevent age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.
Afraid of osteoporosis? Broccoli contains high levels of both calcium and vitamin K, both important for bone health
Don't want to get the flu? One cup of broccoli bolsters the immune system.
