Does Broccoli Reverse Diabetes Damage?

Scientists have released data suggesting a diet high in broccoli may actually reverse damage Diabetes has done to blood vessels in the heart.

While vegetables like broccoli (Brassica vegetables) have previously been linked to lower heart-related health problems, researchers now believe a key compound found in the vegetables, called sulforaphane, may actually reverse such damage, not just help prevent it.

People with Diabetes are up to five times likelier to develop cardiovascular health issues. While the research is in its earliest stages, the data looks promising.
