Did anyone see The Great British Food Revival last week?
It was really interesting. I do believe food plays an important part in our fight against inflammation.
There was a section in the program on cabbage and on a visit to Lincoln University the lecturer went through some of the benefits of this humble vegetable.
I didn’t know that there is as much vitamin C in a cabbage as there is in an orange!
There is vitamin A as well – the darker green the leaf, the more vitamin A.
But my ears really picked up when they said it is also a natural anti-inflammatory.
It helps to lower cholersterol and has been found to protect against certain types of cancer as well.
It’s still available on the BBC iplayer if you would like to watch it
