Bear Creek, Wis. (PRWeb) January 30, 2007 – Pregnant women who eat cruciferous vegetables like Sauerkraut, cabbage, and broccoli may be improving their child’s resistance to cancer, according to a recent study conducted at the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University.

The research, published in the journal Carcinogenesis, was conducted with pregnant mice and revealed that a chemical found in Sauerkraut – Indole-3-carbinol – gave their offspring noticeable protection against leukemia and lymphoma at a young age, and against lung cancer later in life.

Ryan Downs, co-owner of Great Lakes Kraut, the world’s largest Sauerkraut manufacturer, said the latest research augments earlier findings pointing to Sauerkraut as a key in preventing certain types of breast cancer.
