Broccoli & Plantain may block growth of Crohn's disease

A new study suggests that fibers from broccoli & plantain may block the development of Crohn’s disease.

People suffering from Crohn's disease can get relief from vegetables like broccoli & plantain. According to the researchers at Liverpool University, Crohn's disease, also known as granulomatous enteritis & colitis, is an inflammatory disease of the intestines that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus, causing abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting & weight loss. 
 
The research study published in the British Medical Journal says that vegetables like broccoli & plantain contain certain types of soluble fibers that can help prevent bacteria from growing & reduce the progress of the disease. The study conducted on 120,000 people in Britain found that soluble fiber from plantain & broccoli has also ability to fight cancer, reducing the growth of bowel disorder. The researchers mentioning those as 'superfood' found that fibers from broccoli & plantain prevented E.coli movement by between 45% & 82%. However, leek & apple fibers showed no impact in the experiment.
