Eating plenty of cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables may lower the risk of prostrate cancer. Cabbage has long been a staple in the Jewish diet in the form of sauerkraut. Most all cuisines utilize this healthful vegetable in some form or another.

Cabbage can be substituted for lettuce in tacos, shredded for coleslaw, or cooked with nutmeg or anise for a side dish. Having a high vitamin C content, this item is a great addition to a diet for preventing cancer.
