  • ​Radishes and mustard are close relatives to cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage and broccoli. Cruciferous vegetables contain plant nutrients called glucosinolates. In animal studies, glucosinolates have been shown to prevent cancer cells from growing. 
  •  Radishes are a very good source of vitamin C, an antioxidant that prevents and repairs free radical damage, reducing the risk of cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. 
  • Beets contain a compound called betaine that may help lower inflammation and support the liver in detoxifying itself. Betaine may help prevent growth of cancer cells.
