When I was in middle school, I began to notice the unhealthy foods and
lack of vegetarian options in my cafeteria. So I started a petition that
got healthful foods into my school's lunches. The petition got the
attention of school officials, parents, and students who also wanted
healthier options in our school lunches. For a few of my nutrition tips, visit my Kickstart page >
Susan Says: Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower stimulate your liver to make more of the enzymes that remove cancer-causing chemicals from your body. The effect begins within 48 hours of eating them. Cooking them does not destroy their effectiveness.
