Foods of plant origin, despite plenty of nutrients contain many non-nutrition compounds, which may prevent many diet-related non-communicable diseases, such as cancer. Plants produce thousands of phenolic compounds as secondary metabolites, such as nitrous compounds. Glucosinolates are responsible for the secretion of detoxifying enzymes that remove carcinogens for the organism. Furthermore, they activate proteins and II phase detoxifying enzymes. The compounds are very important that is why scientists are still investigating their beneficial note in cancer prevention and management.
