Popeye was onto something when he claimed he was, “strong to the finich cause I eats me spinach.”
Turns out that by eating your green leafy vegetables you could be providing yourself with protection against the devastating immune system cancer non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
For the first time researchers at the Mayo Clinic were able to show that Vitamin K may play an important role in inhibiting the inflammatory cytokines that are involved in development of the cancer.
Although the results are still considered preliminary no one disagrees that leafy greens are good for you. And there’s no reason you can’t take action on this exciting news right away.
Great sources of vitamin K are
- collard greens,
- turnip greens,
- Brussels sprouts,
- green beans,
- and broccoli.
If you ‘re on anti-coagulant drugs or seizure meds be sure to check with your doctor before increasing your vitamin K levels.
Yes Popeye, sometimes diet is indeed the best medicine.
