Cruciferous vegetable intake and mortality in middle-aged adults: A prospective cohort study

Habitual intake of cruciferous vegetables may increase the lifespan of middle-aged and older adults.

This study explored the impact of adopting a high cruciferous vegetable diet on mortality risk. Researchers surveyed 88,184 men and women within the age bracket of 45-74 years over a 16.9-year period. A total of 15,349 deaths were recorded during the course of the study. 

Researchers noted that cruciferous vegetable consumers had low propensity to suffer from deaths due to cancer, stroke, injury, heart disease, and other causes. Data from this study suggest that frequent ingestion of cruciferous vegetables may help middle-aged and older adults to live longer.
