Just as Jennifer Grossman did in publishing editorials and appearing in televisions to share a message, I also crave to send a message across and be heard. My heart goes to all people who are not aware of the problem in health and nutrition. The increasing prevalence of obesity that is the major cause for different diseases such as diabetes, heart ailments, cancers and the many others, the incidence of childhood obesity in line with adult obesity, the mortality and morbidity rate directly related to overweight and obesity. Dole Nutrition Institute came up with a campaign to beat the alarming rate. Promoting the importance of fruits and vegetables in the diet, Dole DNI did not stop with mere provision of healthy products, instead have compiled scientifically-validated articles that are easy to access for public use. Imparting knowledge on health and nutrition is the primary role of the site and differing articles can be found that can be very useful for everfyone. One of which is the “CABBAGE COMPOUND CALMS COLITIS (or colon inflammation) :

This St. Patrick’s Day, we celebrate the healing prowess of cabbage – one of the traditional staples of Irish cuisine. Like other cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, etc.), cabbage contains powerful phytochemicals with possible anti-cancer effects. Now, new research is investigating the potential of such compounds to counter ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease that significantly increases the risk of colon cancer.

Researchers at South Dakota State University isolated and administered particular cruciferous compounds to mice afflicted with ulcerative colitis. Among the more impressive results: a whopping 87% reduction in colon inflammation after five days of observation. Further investigation suggests the compounds work in a dose-dependent manner (e.g., double the intake, double the effect), specifically by suppressing genes associated with inflammation.

While more research is needed to confirm these benefits in humans, there are plenty of reasons to eat more cruciferous vegetables, and cabbage in particular. One cup of cabbage contains 80% vitamin K, 50% vitamin C and 10% folate for just 20 calories. High cabbage intake among Polish women (30 lbs. annually vs. 10 lbs. for American women) may contribute to the former's 66% lower risk of breast cancer. Try an unconventional approach to a time-honored dish with this recipe for Unstuffed Cabbage.

Bonus: Asparagus may be another vegetable to include this St. Patrick’s Day – especially if you’re celebrating with Irish ale. One lab study showed that asparagus extract helped curb liver toxicity.

Main objective of Jennifer Grossman Dole has been met with this article, and that is the incorporation of fruits and vegetables in an American diet. I am no Jennifer Grossman Dole Nutrition Institute, but I am me who have the same heart that wishes for the public to know that fruits and vegetables plays a major role in achieving good health. Dole Nutrition Institute Jennifer Grossman together with other dietitians like me sees the advantage of these natural resources...and backed up with researches and articles, may you be another to spread this information starting with your love ones.
