I'll try anything once and for something as tasty as broccoli, I'll just have to try it over an over. Broccoli sprouts will work in a great many dishes and sandwiches. No end to the culinary possibilities. Thank you 6 foot 3.

Oh it this true?? If Broccoli can help protect against respiratory inflammation that leads to breathing problems like asthma, I will surely try this out. Thanks for sharing this.

Thanks! I'll try that, my brother and I (twins) have asthma, and medications don't always work.

I thought yea, I love broccoli. Then I noticed sprouts. I didn't know there was such a thing, hope they sell them here. Now I've had and love sprouts, but never heard them called broccoli sprouts. Hopefully they're the same thing. Thanks OP for the info.
