From Science Daily: “Current chemotherapies do not work against cancer stem cells, which is why cancer recurs and spreads. Researchers believe that eliminating the cancer stem cells is key to controlling cancer.”

Sulforaphane, an extract from broccoli, successfully destroyed these cancer stem cells in human breast cancer cells as well as in mice.
