An Indian Hyderabad-based private biotechnology research centre (Intonation Research Laboratories Pvt Lmt) has collaborated with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre in Boston to identify a natural compound in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables which serves as a potent tumour suppressor. The study was published in the journal Science.

The decreased risk of cancer has for long been associated with consumption of broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens, Brussels sprouts and kale, but the actual gene which works for it was not known.

The current research has found that these cruciferous vegetables contain a molecule which inactivates a gene known as WWP1.

The ingredients in broccoli which was used to test cancer prone laboratory animals found that cancer cells were suppressed.

Dr Suresh Jain, a biotech entrepreneur whose laboratories in Hyderabad are a part of the research, stated that they are a part of the team which has helped to identify the natural compound in broccoli. Source: Deccan Chronicle
