ASPARAGUS: a strong cancer fighting vegetable

Asparagus is the perfect and most healthy vegetable.

Asparagus has been found to be the perfect antioxidant vegetable, a perfect vitamin, and a strong cancer fighting vegetable. Asparagus is rich in glutathione and histones, which stimulate the immune system is stimulated and heal many medical conditions as ulcers and cancers.

ALLYL-ISOTHIOCYANATE (AITC)
Asparagus also contains Isglucosinolate, a substance that metabolizes to a cancer preventive substance known as othiocyanate. When food is chopped, or cooked, it may have a bitter flavor because of the release of this chemical, which stops the uncontrolled division of cancer cells. AITC seems to prevent cancer cells from becoming immortal. This is the property that makes them different from healthy cells to commit suicide instead of constantly dividing.

CANCER FIGHTING HISTONES
Asparagus has a high content of a protein called histone. Histones are very strong alkaline proteins found in every human cell nucleus. There are about 300 million histone molecules in the body. Histones package and make the DNA structurally into nucleosomes. They enclose the entire DNA content of a cell into the chromosomes of the nucleus. Acting as spools around which DNA winds, they play a role in regulating genes. Active genes have less bound histone than inactive genes. Histones regulate whether the genes in DNA are turned on or off. The DNA in chromosomes is wound around the histone proteins. Without histones, the unknown DNA in each human cell would be 1.8 m long. But since DNA wraps around his stones there is only 90 mm of chromatin. Wound DNA is 15,000 times shorter than unwound ones.

The histones bind the entry and exit sites of the DNA and locked the DNA into place. When histones are assembled with DNA in the cell nuclei, they are called chromatin. The nucleus of cells contains chromosomes, which are made up of protein and DNA. Each protein in the nucleus has multiple varieties of histones. Essentially, histones in chromosomes, are basic amino acids with various sequences, depending on the organism.

Histones help the DNA repair, allow chromosomes to undergo mitosis, and regulate genes. They play an important role in forming telomeres, the natural end of a chromosome. If you lack histones, you will have cellular death.

EFFECTS OF COOKING

Cooking destroys the antioxidant effects of asparagus. Chemicals in cruciferous vegetables, as asparagus, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts decreased the risk of many types of cancer. They work in a similar way as some cancer drugs. Steaming the asparagus keeps about 89% of its original antioxidant content. Boiling and microwaving kills nearly all the antioxidants present.

THE PERFECT VITAMIN
Asparagus contains all the ingredients of the most potent vitamin. A 10-ounce box of frozen asparagus spears as only 68 calories and 9 g of protein. It contains the minerals selenium, zinc, calcium, copper, and manganese. Asparagus has highly alkaline salts and trace elements of silicon and molybdenum, all essential for the health of major organs. It is also an excellent source of potassium, vitamin C, pectin, vitamin K, aspartic acid, and folate. Asparagine, which is essential for prostate gland health, also lowers the risk of colon and cervical cancer. Having vitamin B6, asparagus is one of the top five diuretics ,along with watermelon, cantaloupe, leek, and artichokes.
