Folk might like to access an article entitled “Praise the Humble Cabbage’ in today’s Press (Section A10). Cabbages have a number of health promoting properties, namely sulforaphane which studies indicate is protective against many cancers. Dr Libby, writer of the article, also points out the cabbage, a very versatile vegetable (can be eaten cooked and raw) also contains vitamin C and is a very good source of manganese.

Happy eating
