I asked, "why is this nutritionally better than Swiss Chard?" (which I do enjoy) and it turns out it isn't!
It's all about the anti-oxidants found in cruciferous vegetables, glucosinolates. These have potent anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects. Eating too many raw cruciferous vegetables has the side effect of suppressing thyroid function so moderation (and proper cooking) is key.
