Can It Be This Easy? Will Eating Kale And Cabbage Really Help Slow Down Multiple Myeloma?

A regular reader who just completed a successful stem cell transplant (SCT), named Danny, forwarded me this interesting link about several compounds which feature anti-myeloma activity:

Anti-tumor activity and signaling events triggered by the isothiocyanates, sulforaphane and phenethyl isothiocyanate, in multiple myeloma

Don’t be intimidated.  Apparently, ITCs as they are called, might be useful in slowing the advance of multiple myeloma.  Natural occurring sources of ITCs include:

  • Wasabi
  • Kale
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Turnips
  • Radishes
  • Watercress
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Capers

That’s a pretty healthy looking list!  Like curcumin, the issue becomes how much kale or wasabi does someone need to eat in order to gain any benefit?

The good news:  There isn’t a food on this list that isn’t good for us, whether we eat enough to influence our myeloma or not.

So eat up!  Refer back to this list and start including one or more of these foods in your daily meal planning.  Thanks, Danny!

Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
