Broccoli sprouts for air pollution
It seems the wildfires and other sources of air pollution are only getting worse, so I'm reminded that nature has generously provided us with a partial antidote to harm from air pollution: Broccoli sprouts! Studies involving diesel emissions and highly polluted parts of China suggest that consuming broccoli sprouts may help to prevent long-term health damage from air pollution. To quote researchers, "intervention with broccoli sprouts enhances the detoxication of some airborne pollutants and may provide a frugal means to attenuate their associated long-term health risks." You can buy broccoli sprouts in the produce section or easily grow them yourself in mason jars. They have numerous health and anti-aging properties, so enjoy them anytime, but air quality alerts are my reminder to stock up.
