The hot new ingredient in sunscreens may be –broccoli. Inflammation and redness are key measures of future skin cancer risk.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine are finding out that not only
is broccoli a potent cancer-fighter when you eat it, applying a smear of an

ability by boosting production of protective enzymes and it works for days, even
after it’s washed off. Show share with your friends and let’em know you heard it from Justin in the morning!
