NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - A dose of a chemical found in broccoli and other vegetables may improve the behavioral and social symptoms of autism in young men, according to a new small study.


But people would have to eat a possibly unrealistic amount of broccoli and other vegetables to reach the dose of the molecule - known as sulphoraphane - used in the new study, the lead researcher told Reuters Health.


“Our extract product we used is not on the market,” Dr. Andrew W. Zimmerman said by phone. “There are other things like it but in different forms.”
Sulphoraphane is found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage, but more so in the raw vegetables than cooked. Previous studies have found that it inhibits some bacterial growth and may slow the growth of some cancers.

Doesn't surprise me really. I remember in the 80's being told that chemicals found in broccoli actuallyhelped prevent cancer...back when my aunt was in the hospital.
