I’m eating broccoli. A bowl-load a day. Broccoli contains a lot of anti-oxidants and anti-oxidants help repair cells and prevent cancers. There are stories about people who complete cure themselves from cancer by going on an all-broccoli diet. No doubt much of this broccoli propaganda is urban legend, but some of it is surely science.
For me, eating broccoli, berries and drinking tea implies no sacrifices. I adapt easily. I even like what broccoli tastes like. “The only problem,” I say to my friend Zhiben, “is that broccoli gives you gas.” “No,” he assures me. “Not in Taiwan.” Unfortunately Zhiben, I think you’re wrong.
