Most of the toxins in the environment are chemical agents that can easily penetrate your cells and DNA, raising your cancer risk in the process.
However, it is possible to equip your body with counter-measures that help remove these toxic chemicals from your system before they can cause much damage.
For example, eating cruciferous vegetables is a natural way to help protect your body from toxic agents. Cruciferous veggies contain indole-3 carbinol, which helps promote healthy estrogen levels and allows your cells and tissues to repair and regenerate.
