The Green Healer: The Wonder Veggie

It turns out that broccoli is a super way to green holiday menus. This wonder veggie, which has been found to lower the risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer, now has been found to even reverse damage done to heart vessels as a result of diabetes, according to UK researchers.
