sprouts and cabbage, is associated with less extensive blood vessel disease such as heart attack or stroke in older women, say researchers. Blood vessel disease is a condition that affects our blood vessels (arteries and veins) and can reduce the flow of blood circulating around the body. This reduction in blood flow can be due to the build-up of fatty, calcium deposits on the inner walls of our blood vessels, such as the aorta.

This build-up of fatty, calcium deposits is the leading cause of having a heart attack or stroke. "In our previous studies, we identified those with a higher intake of these vegetables had a reduced risk of having a clinical cardiovascular disease event, such as a heart attack or stroke, but we weren't sure why," said study author Lauren Blekkenhorst from the University of Western Australia.
"Our findings from this new study provides insight into the potential mechanisms involved," Blekkenhorst added.

For the study, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, the research team used data from a cohort of 684 older Western Australian women. The researchers found that those with a diet comprising more cruciferous vegetables had a lower chance of having an extensive build-up of calcium on their aorta, a key marker for structural blood vessel disease.

"We have now found that older women consuming higher amounts of cruciferous vegetables every day have lower odds of having extensive calcification on their aorta," she said. "One particular constituent found abundantly in cruciferous vegetables is vitamin K which may be involved in inhibiting the calcification process that occurs in our blood vessels," Blekkenhorst explained.
