Broccoli is your one-stop shop for all the essential nutrients. Its consumption helps in reducing the risk of developing lung cancer among smokers. This powerhouse vegetable contains L-sulforaphane, which protects your lungs from inflammation and supports overall lung development.
Broccoli is very perishable and should be stored in an open plastic bag in the refrigerator. Since water on the surface will encourage its degradation, do not wash broccoli before refrigerating, or else use washed broccoli the same day you wash it.
