Hi guys, shouting out from the great lake!! I’ll make this quick. So, lately I have been doing a lot of research. I recently watched/took notes on Dr.Rhonda Patrick’s Broccoli sprout video. In it she mentioned a lot of cool things about the veggie along with other veggies within that realm. During the video, she mentioned NFR2. I paused the video and looked it up before resuming so I could get a better handle on what she was mentioning. While digging into NFR2, I found something worth questioning.
In the WIKI article I have linked with this post, it states: Potential adverse effects of NRF2 activation “Genetic activation of NRF2 may promote the development of de novo cancerous tumors as well as the development of atherosclerosis by raising plasma cholesterol levels and cholesterol content in the liver. It has been suggested that the latter effect may overshadow the potential benefits of antioxidant induction afforded by NRF2 activation.”
So my question is: If these cruciferous veggies increase/promote NRF2. Is it bad to eat Cruciferious veggies? Or too many? Wouldn’t that mean you would want to stay away from them? I know these questions may be silly but I’m just confused. I’m sure its fine to eat them, just curious. Anyone have any answers? PS I would recommend anybody to watch Dr. R.P. video on broccoli sprouts.
