HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Cabbage is one of the oldest cultivated vegetables. It was enjoyed by the ancient Romans both as a food and as a medicine to treat wounds, colic, and to prevent plague. In later centuries other cultures used it to treat bruises, poisoning, dog bites, and acne. Although each variety of cabbage differs somewhat in nutritional value, they all provide healthy levels of vitamin C and various phtyonutrients, that are known to prevent breast cancer and help the liver rid itself of toxins. Cabbage can heal ulcers and contains substances that can strengthen the immune system and reduce tumor growth.
