Sprouts contain a chemical called sinigrin which suppresses the development of pre-cancerous cells. The breakdown product of sinigrin, allyl isothiocyanate, responsible for the characteristic smell of sprouts, is the active ingredient. It works by persuading the precancerous cells to commit suicide – a natural process called apoptosis – and so powerful is the effect that we think that the occasional meal of sprouts could destroy these cells in the colon.
