The beneficial effects of Brassica vegetables on human health.
TLDR
Brassica vegetables contain a lot of valuable metabolites, which are effective in chemoprevention of cancer, and may affect the elimination or neutralization of carcinogenic and mutagenic factors, and consequently inhibit DNA methylation and cancer development.
Phytochemical composition and in vitro anti-tumour activities of selected tomato varieties.
TLDR
In vitro, tomato fruits constitute a healthy source of phytochemicals, although differences exist among varieties, and synergy was observed between olive oil and tomato carotenoids in inhibiting HT-29 cancer cell proliferation.
Anticancer antioxidant regulatory functions of phytochemicals.
TLDR
This review discusses current knowledge on phytochemicals in relation to their potential as chemopreventive and/or chemotherapeutic molecule against human cancers and the use of bioactive phytochemical on synergistic actions involved in the prevention and treatment of cancer as well as its future prospects.
Anti-proliferative activity and chemoprotective effects towards DNA oxidative damage of fresh and cooked Brassicaceae
TLDR
New insight is provided into the influence of domestic treatment on the quality of food, which could support the recent epidemiological studies suggesting that consumption of cruciferous vegetables, mainly cooked, may be related to a reduced risk of developing cancer.
Young Shoots and Mature Red Cabbage Inhibit Proliferation and Induce Apoptosis of Prostate Cancer Cell Lines
TLDR
It is reported that the studied vegetable inhibited the proliferation of cancer cells and that this process was associated with the induction of apoptosis via caspase-dependent and both extrinsic and intrinsic pathways.
Antioxidant and anticancer activities of Chenopodium quinoa leaves extracts - in vitro study.
Antioxidant and in vitro Anti-cancer Activities of Brassica juncea (L.) Czern. seeds and sprouts
TLDR
It is demonstrated that seed extracts of Indian mustard have more potential as chemo-preventive and chemotherapeutic agents than sprout extracts.
Alteration of Phenolic Composition in Lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) by Reducing Nitrogen Supply Enhances its Anti-Proliferative Effects on Colorectal Cancer Cells
TLDR
Results showed that phenolic extracts from lettuce grown under low nitrogen conditions (LP) exhibited better anti-proliferative effects against Caco-2 cells, in part, by interfering with the cell cycle and inducing apoptosis, compared with those from lettuce supplied with adequate nitrogen.
Antimicrobial, antioxidant and anticancer activities of Thai local vegetables.
Thai local vegetables (20 species) were screened for their antimicrobial and antioxidant activities. Methanolic extracts of Cassia siamea, Garcinia cowa, Limnophila aromatica and Polygonum odoratum

TLDR
Clinical studies that provide information about possible in vivo changes in antioxidant status with fruit and vegetable consumption are provided and a potential role for food flavonoids and polyphenolics as antioxidants is discussed.
Vitamins, Phytochemicals, Diets, and Their Implementation in Cancer Chemoprevention
TLDR
The results suggest that a metabolomics approach might demonstrate that antioxidant rich whole diets play a more important role, rather than individual antioxidants in cancer prevention.
Health benefits of fruit and vegetables are from additive and synergistic combinations of phytochemicals.

TLDR
It is proposed that the additive and synergistic effects of phytochemicals in fruit and vegetables are responsible for their potent antioxidant and anticancer activities, and that the benefit of a diet rich in Fruit and vegetables is attributed to the complex mixture of phydochemicals present in whole foods.
Phytochemicals from cruciferous plants protect against cancer by modulating carcinogen metabolism.
TLDR
Substantial evidence supports the view that phase 2 enzyme induction is a highly effective strategy for reducing susceptibility to carcinogens and an increasing number of phase 2 proteins that exert a variety of protective mechanisms are being identified.
Mechanisms of action and antiproliferative properties of Brassica oleracea juice in human breast cancer cell lines.
TLDR
The edible part of Brassica oleracea contains substances that can markedly inhibit the growth of both ER+ and ER- human breast cancer cells, although through different mechanisms, suggest that the widely available cruciferous vegetables are potential chemopreventive agents.
Tomato products, lycopene, and prostate cancer: a review of the epidemiological literature.
TLDR
The meta-analysis indicates that results from cohort studies and serumor plasma-based studies support about a 25–30% reduction in the risk of prostate cancer.
Epidemiological studies on brassica vegetables and cancer risk.
TLDR
It is concluded that a high consumption of brassica vegetables is associated with a decreased risk of cancer, and this association appears to be most consistent for lung, stomach, colon, and rectal cancer and least consistent for prostatic, endometrial, and ovarian cancer.

The causes and prevention of cancer.
Epidemiological evidence indicates that avoidance of smoking, increased consumption of fruits and vegetables, and control of infections will have a major effect on reducing rates of cancer. Other
