    I love broccoli, too. Unfortunately, my IBS doesn't. :cry:

    I used to love broccoli but these days it doesn't taste as it once did, the same with tomatoes so I tend to avoid eating them.

    I've always eaten a lot of broccoli, as well as enjoying it, it has very high levels of vitamins and iron too. If it is helping my OA, heaven help me if I stop eating it! Maybe something else I'm eating is counteracting the good effects? I need to know!!!

    I was invited to take part in a study that involved eating broccoli, but to look at anti-oxidant rather than anti-inflam, comparing a specially bred variety with ordinary. I couldn't take part in the end because not only did they have concerns about if I needed to start medication for the arthritis, but also the initial screening showed microscopic blood was present in my urine sample so that had to be checked out. By the time that was sorted my mum had died and I had other things on my mind, including a bad OP diagnosis.
    The comment about IBS has set me thinking - I haven't had any broccoli or its relatives for some time and I haven't had too much gut trouble. It never used to be a problem(otherwise I wouldn't have agreed to be part of the trial) but now I am wondering if that has changed, along with quite a lot of other things.
