Kale is a rich source of organosulfur compounds, which have been shown to reduce the risk of many cancers,1especially one of the most deadly forms, colon cancer.2 The cancer-protective compounds in kale have thus been the subject of intense research, particularly their role in blocking the growth of cancer cells and inducing cancer cell death (apoptosis)
