Whole food(herbal medicine) used as medical treatment,  linking health benefits in prevention, management and treatment of diseases has induced much interests in today renowned scientists.
But many researchers have raised question of herbal quality, because geographic differences, time of grown and harvest, etc. may effect their's potency. I do believe, these questions can only be answered by experience herbalists.

Cruciferous Vegetables containing various phytochemical compounds may be the best vegetables for reduced risk and treatment of colon cancer.
According to the joint study lead by the China Medical University, sulforaphane (SFN), an isothiocyanate, existed only in cruciferous vegetables, interfered the cancer cell cycle division in induction of apoptosis in HCT 116 cells.

Cruciferous vegetables are the group of vegetables belonging to the family Brassicaceae, including cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bok choy, broccoli etc.

Colon cancer is a condition of the abnormal proliferation of cells in the colon..

Dr. Martin SL the lead author in the study of the effect of sulforaphane (SFN) against colon cancer cells, said, " sulforaphane (SFN), found in cruciferous vegetables such as kale, cabbage and broccoli sprouts, has been present as one of the most potent (histone deacetylase) HDAC inhibitors to date. " and " HDAC inhibition is a promising approach for delaying and/or preventing CRC and may be accomplished via consumption of SFN in cruciferous vegetables".

Futhermore, sulforaphane (SF) also expressed its chemoprotective properties in immortalized human colonic epithelial cell lines with no harm to normal tissues and levels of steroidogenic enzymes which play an important role in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases.

In multiple genetic and signaling pathway alterations underline the development of colon cancer study, 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM), a natural compound derived from cruciferous vegetables also significantly suppressed colcon cancer effect  through targeting Wnt/β-catenin signaling, a highly conserved pathway through evolution, regulates key cellular functions including proliferation, differentiation.

According to Dr. Tse G and Dr. Eslick GD. in the address of phytochemicals of Cruciferous Vegetables against colon cancer said, " Evidence shows cruciferous vegetables exhibit chemoprotective properties, commonly attributed to their rich source of isothiocyanates......, cruciferous vegetable intake protects against cancer of the colon" and " (cruciferous vegetable )demonstrates the significance of gene-diet interactions".

Although cruciferous Vegetable has shown to process a potency in treatment of colon cancer, further human trials are necessary to confirm its validation.
