Cancer prevention tops all other areas of health research with regard to cabbage and its outstanding benefits. More than 475 studies have examined the role of this cruciferous vegetable in cancer prevention (and in some cases, cancer treatment). The uniqueness of cabbage in cancer prevention is due to the three different types of nutrient richness found in this widely enjoyed food.

Cabbage can also provide special cholesterol-lowering benefits if cooked by steaming it. The fiber-related components in cabbage do a better job of binding together with bile acids in your digestive tract when they’ve been steamed.
