Carnivore, this one's for yoou!!

BERKELEY – Those seeking yet another reason to eat their veggies, take note. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that a chemical produced when digesting such greens as broccoli and kale can stifle the growth of human prostate cancer cells.


Additonally, a recent article stated that broccolli has proven to eliminate nematode activity in the soil - something previously attained only by the use of hichly toxic fumigants. (They plowed under the remains of the plants after harvesting the flower buds).

the great fly-over
so if the "chemical produced" while digesting that nasty stuff is so great, why can't i just drink a shot of the chemical every day?
I don't believe anything scientists say. You can prove anything as long as you have a graph and a piechart.
Speaking of which, I just made my own graph. It shows that 100% of carnivores say "broccolli sucks."
:P

PS. All I really got out of that article is that broccolli is basically a "highly toxic fumigant" :LOL:

Your graph, Aaron, just like those you allude to, errs: my dog, a 10 yr old, 110 lb carnivore, enjoys eating broccoli.

(And has neither prostate cancer nor nematodes!!)
