Many people know that broccoli is good for us. The media constantly remind us of this. But people aren’t sure how it equates to broccoli sprouts, or more typically broccoli sprout juice.

Quite often the question is trying to compare factors or things that are incomparable. One wouldn’t ask how many tomatoes you need to make a mushroom soup!

Sometimes somebody else says what needs saying absolutely perfectly. Max Tuck has just done this with an all-round superb blog about Sulforaphane. Her piece, which is not that long, highlights seven key beneficial reasons why it is such an important compound. These seven reasons categorise areas of health for which Sulforaphane  has widely accepted and profound benefits.

One of the challenges we all face is how our lives either end, or more often degenerate.  For many this is an unpleasant reality, or one we prefer not to contemplate.

Steve Meyerowitz was known as “Sproutman”.  His energy and powerful insights into eating and health are there for all of us to take advantage of.  Sadly, this line is now historical as he died in 2015 in a motor car accident.  I feel privileged to have met and listened to him.

Résumé of the VAT tribunal seeking to impose VAT on wheatgrass juice

This is a résumé of the VAT case between Ocean Grown Ltd and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). This is compiled by me, Oliver Dowding, the appellant.

Just imagine you trundle into the supermarket and on the shelf you see something that looks like a broccoli head.  Despite that, something tells you it’s not quite as it looks.  Could it have been artificially created?  Suppose it’s a tiny bit cheaper – or maybe not!  What do you do? Go for the one you know is the real deal, perhaps even spend a little more, or succumb to the temptation of a perceived “bargain”.

Any time that science learns the value of a particular nutrient, people get excited! That’s not surprising. What then follows, as sure as night follows day, is a succession of pharmaceutical companies try to find a way in which to replicate that nutrients, vitamin, or whatever in a pill format. They don’t suggest you simply eat plenty of oranges to get vitamin C, but instead colour an artificial pill which they’ve filled with what they believe to be the identical value ingredient within the orange.
