Cruciferous vegetables may process a significant effect in the reducing risk and treatment of bladder cancer, some scientists suggested.
The bladder is a hollow elastic organ in the center of the lower abdomen that collects urine from the kidneys and excreted them through the urethra.
Bladder cancer is a medical and chronic condition caused by cell growth irregularly and disorderly in the bladder tissue as a result of cell DNA alternation.
Most cases of primary bladder cancer start on the surface of the inner lining of the bladder. At the cancer progress, the cancerous cell can penetrate deeper in the bladder tissue and travel a distance away to infect other healthy tissue and organs.
According to the statistic, men are 4 times more likely than women to be diagnosed with the disease. and 90% of people with bladder cancer are older than 55, and the average age people are diagnosed with bladder cancer is 73.
Cancer causes 17,000 deaths (12,500 men and 4,500 women) every year.
Although there are many risk factors associated with the onset of bladder cancer, long-term cigarette smoking use is considered a significant cause of the disease. Smokers are 4 to 7 times more likely to develop bladder cancer than nonsmokers.
However, most of the cigarette smoker has never developed bladder cancer.
Dr. Neal D Freedman, the lead author in the concerns of bladder cancer widespread in men launched an investigation to evaluate the cigarette smoking in the risk of bladder cancer.
The study included a total of 81,394 men and 86,134 of women who complete the NIH-AARP cohort lifestyle questionnaire and followed from 1995 through Dec 31, 2006.
During 4,518,938 years of follow-up, incident bladder cancer occurred in 3,896 men (144.0/100,000 person-years) and 627 women (34.5/100,000 person-years).
Former smokers and current smokers were found to have higher risks of bladder cancer than never smokers.
The summary risk estimate for current smoking followed from 1963–1987) was 2.94.
The risk of bladder cancer of ever smoking in our study was 0.50 in men and 0.52 in women.
The findings not only suggested that the risk of bladder cancer not only increases in the current smoker but also elevates in previous smokers.
Cruciferous vegetables are the group of vegetables belonging to the family Brassicaceae, including cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bok choy, broccoli etc.
Its chemical constituents of cruciferous vegetables include glucosinolates, dithiolthiones, indoles, glucoraphanin, s-methyl cysteine sulfoxide, isothiocyanates, indole-3-carbinol, etc.
In the reaffirming the epidemiologic evidence suggests diets rich in cruciferous vegetables, particularly broccoli, are associated with lower bladder cancer risk, researchers at The Ohio State University conducted an evaluation to test the mechanisms whereby broccoli and broccoli sprout extracts and pure isothiocyanates inhibit normal, noninvasive (RT4), and invasive (J82, UMUC3) human urothelial cell viability.
Sulforaphane (IC(50) = 5.66 ± 1.2 μM) and erucin (IC(50) = 8.79 ± 1.3 μM), the major compounds found in the broccoli and broccoli sprout are the most potent inhibitors without harming to the normal cells.
